Sythe Fuma Vs Cryorig R1 Universal

I was going to purchase the Sythe Fuma since the initial reviews showed its thermal performance on par with the R1 and NH-D15. Not to mention it fits in a lot more cases and is much cheaper.

Now, it seems that more recent youtube reviews indicate that the Fuma is more in line with the Cryorig H7. With a variation that big, it gives me doubts. Should I discredit those youtube reviews and get the Fuma or should I go with the R1 Universal? I'll be using it on a 6600k but am undecided on the mobo and case.

Mounting pressure is the key with the Fuma.

It's a fantastic cooler if mounted correctly. Of course you need to know when to stop tightening so you don't break anything.
