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.
