Scythe Grand Kama Cross Rev. B vs Noctua NH-C12P SE14

Hey everyone,
I am in the process of changing my build to a mini itx based build.

I sold my Fractal Design Arc Midi and purchased a Fractal Design Node 304 along with the ASUS P8-Z77 Mini ITX board.

I currently have a Noctua NH-D14, but it is too big for the board. My graphics card, an ASUS GTX 560ti DCU II Top, will not fit on a mini itx board with this cooler.

I OC'd with the old cooler.

I am looking at the Scythe Grand Kama Cross Rev. B and the Noctua NH-C12P.

The Scythe is $40 and the Noctua is $75.

Is the extra $35 worth it for the Noctua?

    It looks like the IO Panel will not fit in it's respective slot in that picture.

    It looks like the D14 hovers directly over the IO panel.
