from completed build Silent Black and Red
Went from a 240 mm AIO water cooler to the Sycthe Fuma with a Noctua NF-F12 in the middle. In the end the AIO was just too loud under idle even though it helped keep it cooler by a few degrees. There is also something warm and fuzzy knowing there is not liquid in my system… hard to explain. Anyways love the compact size of this dual tower cooler while still using 120 mm fans. Would definitely recommend Scythe for price versus performance. The stock fans were silent as well but nothing is as silent as Noctua on low fan speed PWM.

from completed build Budget Air-Cooled Dynamic
Fits beautifully inside the Dynamic. Being one of the few coolers inside the 155mm clearance range, and sitting at 149mm, looks awesome and fits great. I'll really test out the cooling capabilities once I OC further, currently idling at 30c, haven't passed 42c under load. My only gripe is the difficulty of the installation of the fan in the middle. I don't have a better solution honestly, but the current one is a bit irritating and tricky to work with.

from completed build Blue Eyes White Dragon
Performance on par with CLC's that cost 200-300% more. Insanely underrated performance, but the aesthetic design is outdated. I painted the outer heatsink. Also, one of the included fans had a small string of plastic on it that made noise when the fan was spinning.
