CFM means nothing when it comes to a fan for a heatsink and you need to learn that.

Static Pressure means a lot more when it comes to a fan for a CPU than CFM.

You could have 600 CFM on a fan but if it can't move air through the heatsink its not gonna cool anything down. This is why Noctua brought out the NF-P12 series as they are a high static pressure fan designed to push air through heatsinks to allow proper cooling.

Do a bit more research before thinking CFM means everything in fact I dare you to redo these tests with a NF-P12 fan compared to stock and I'll put money down that the NF-P12 will provide better results.
