Hey there,
I transitioned from my previous build http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=67907 to the following:

Fractal Design R5 PCGH Edition
Asus Z170 Pro Gaming
i5 6600K

Since I am about to give the Scythe Kotetsu I am recently using to a friend, I was wondering what might be a decent replacement given I have a spare NF F12-PWM lying around and aim for some moderate overclocking. In most threads I saw recommendation for the Scythe Ninja. Are there any additional coolers I should consider?
Thanks and best regards!

The Ninja already sports a Glidestream fan and, albeit the F12 has an higher build quality, in a SPCR-like scenario (low rpm) the stock fan somehow proved to be slightly better than the Noctua: this is my own experience (I mean mostly better temps, and a more agreable noise-signature IMO).
