It's not just a continent thing but a country to country it varies based on distribution, this applies to any product and brand. The big brands often sell everywhere while smaller brands don't care as much to do so.

Considering the similar performance of similar design coolers it comes down to what you can buy and at what value, that will determine what cooler is the best value for you in your shopping are at that time.

I didn't see a single seller on Geizhals.eu for LGMRT so no idea where anyone in EU is buying those. Must hunt around to find them for sure. Caseking has no TR Macho, mindfactory either and only has a TR plastic tunnel/duct haha. Maybe the human virus has put a stop to shipping TR to EU for now, who knows. Or one has to get them from US or Asia... :/
soooooo much this. Scythe products are basically non existent in canada. At one point last year, scythe started selling their products on amazon which is when i got the fuma 2 for $40 less then a NH-D15 (95 vs 135 all in). At the time, the ninja 5 was also available for 10 dollars less but i figure i'd jump on the fuma instead. Months later, both products aren't sold by amazon/fulfilled by amazon anymore. Even if you go to newegg, there are no scythe coolers sold by newegg.ca. Other sites i've checked was canadacomputers, memeoryexpress and mikescomputershop and none of them even carry scythe products.

it's too bad though. I have some scythe case fans for over a decade and they are still going strong which is why i went with the fuma 2 in the first place. I guess they are just a niche brand.

I'm flushing the loop, getting new tubing, some new fittings and going mount everything to the p-5 . Just needed a cooler to get by with while I'm working on the liquid setup.


I see you have Gskill memory. what is the clearance between the memory and the fan mounted on Ninja 5? I am trying to debate between FUMA 2 and Ninja 5 for my girlfriend's build. Ordered Geil EVO II ram kit, but those are tall. So I am trying to eye the clearance.

In my OCF I have Trident X which is 55mm from the bottom of the pcb on the edge to the top. I took photo so you can see what it looks like. Also I have my Fuma 2 on my X99 Godlike so you can compare, I didn't measure to see if the memory slots are spaced the same though.

The biggest failure part of the Ninja 5 is that if you have tall ram you have to jack up the fans so the bottom fins with the cutouts for memory don't get any airflow and the top of the fans just blow over nothing. The Fuma 2 doesn't have this issue but on my Apex 11 the ram slots are very close so it is a really tight fit with the 15mm included fan so even the Fuma 2 has problems sometimes. In the picture without the fan with the Fuma 2 I moved the memory stick into the first slot and the included fan would still fit fine with that slot occupied.

The fans are resting on the ram and this makes it necessary to allow for a little more height on the cooler in your case as well.

As the other poster mentioned, it also renders the bottom few rows of fins passive.

Maybe this will help.
Case CPU cooler clearance + 5mm ≤ 120mm or 140mm fan + RAM height
Case specified CPU cooler clearance plus 5mm is equal to or greater than fan size plus height of RAM measure measured out of socket.

Yes, helpful.

This is what mine looks like from the top down.
