Is it worth it going from 92 to 110cfm? Will I see any temperature differences? I was looking at replacing but its up to you guys, is it worth it?

You probably won't see any difference in temperatures.
Maybe a couple degrees at best. IMO not worth it. Although Noctuas are pretty bad fans IMO.

With NH-U12P high cfm fans don't really help much with temps, using Silverstone FM-121's instead of original Noctua fans only reduced temps by something like 3-4 C.

Stockies on the NH-U12P are very quiet. I'd stick with those. They keep my 930 at 38 celsius at idle or something ridiculous like that - can't see higher CFM fans doing much better and will likely be noisier.

Then I might just grab a pair of those for 30€ and use the noctuas as case fans on my old system

If you are talking about Silverstone's then do remember that those things are really noisy at full speed. And if you still want it then one is enough, second one only helps at minimum speeds.

can I ask why are they pretty bad? because they don't have 100+CFM?
you know they can move pretty good amount of air and still be silent

Yeah I like them very much they are dead silent but at the moment I'm leaning towards the performance.

So if the noctuas without ULNA push/pull 54Cfm and the ones I'm looking at do 110Cfm shouldn't I see like 8c improvement?
