I'd drop to a cheaper b450 mothboard and get 16gb ram with the price difference. Additionally if you wanted to you could drop to a 2600 non x since you have a better cooler and potentially between that and the cheaper mothboard get a gtx 1070

I’m getting the mobo and cpu as a bundle at a microcenter. Probably not going to downgrade it.

Only thing I need help with is buying a Tower case that can fit my cooler and mobo without struggling. $130 budget

Then I'd just ditch the cooler and get 16gb ram the 2600x comes with a pretty solid stock cooler

As for the noctua it should come with the mounting for am4 at this point but I suppose an old one could come your way
