Scythe Fuma vs Noctua NH-D14

I'm planning on buying a new cooler and i can't decide between Noctua NH-D14 and Scythe Fuma, i tried to search for some benchmarks between these two but i end up finding only benchmarks for Scythe Fuma and Noctua NH-D15 and of course the Noctua NH-D15 was the winner, but the temperature differences were not that high plus the Noctua D15 is way more expensive than Scythe Fuma. The specs show that Scythe Fuma would be better if not mistaken (Fuma airflow: 5.6 - 79 CFM) ((Noctua airflow: 64.92 CFM). I'm curious what you think and which one shoud i buy? Btw i'm going to use it on a i5 7600k (4.5-5.oGhz).

Thanks!

  1. For your CPU just pick the Scythe Fuma, if it's available to you. The problem with Scythe Fuma is that they aren't as widely available as Noctua, and the crappy fans, but Fuma Heatsink is solid. For example in Australia, we have zero stores carry Scythe Fuma. Importing it from Japan put it pretty close to NH-D15S in term of price ($99 vs $104) so there's no sense picking the Fuma, at least for Australian.

    Back in the day when the first Scythe Mugen was released it was THE go-to heatsink on the market.
    I'm on my second scythe cooler, currently using a Mugen 4, had a Katana 2 (or 3? Was the one in this weird 130° angle) and talked a friend into scythe Mugen Max.
    Really good coolers especially at ⅔ or ½ the cost of a Noctua or Cryorig of similar performance.
    Can't do wrong with one

    Actually here in Central Europe the Fuma is 50$ and the Noctua D15S is 100$.
