Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT vs Scythe Ninja 5

I decided on one of these two because of the great performance and noise levels. What I'm struggling with now is picking which one, they seem to be fairly similar.
Which do you guys reckon is the better choice?

Myself, I would get the Le Grand Macho RT if it will fit in your system. It's larger fin area and additional heatpipe and larger fan do make a difference.



Le Grand Macho RT is arguably the best cooler on the market .. with NH-D15 being it's only real competition.

This checks out.

Ninja 5 is more likely to run into RAM clearance issues on dual channel boards (B450/X370/X470/X570 ,Z390).

What cooler really doesn't run into RAM height issues when it does have a push fan. Blame RAM makers making stupidly tall heatsinks out of specs for aesthetic reasons for a product that gets locked in a case and no one looks at again beyond posted photos all over internet for bragging rights.
Plus most dual channel boards have main RAM slots #2 and #4 away from CPU socket to resolve this endless clearance issue.

Noticed since the release of the AMD X370 series and beyond, ALL memory needs to be installed into #2 and #4 slots, maybe they heard us here on OCN for once .

Dunno, my Z97 has #2 and #4 as those recommended to be used but it is not necessary. Overall on all boards it should work with using slots more far from the CPU socket. Did not notice any difference between which pair is used.
Usually it's written somewhere in manual this recommendation or which slots are primary and should be used with 2 stick only, but practically don't really need to, do they.
