Am looking for a high performance air cooler to fit. I wanted the Noctua D15, however, the specs look like Noctua isn't an option. According to Newegg the Max CPU Cooler Height Allowance is 158mm. Any suggestions for a premium cooler that performs like a Noctua that fits? Many thanks.

Its the RL06WS-W and AMD cpu.

Ah OK then. The Noctua NH-U12,(S),(A) coolers fit. Excellent! Very good news. Thanks for that link to that tool Beermann. Cheers.

I don't know which AMD CPU you are trying to cool, but also have a look at the Scythe Mugen 5 Rev. B. Very good fan , though not quite up to Noctua quality, but very quiet and I think cools a bit better than the Noctua U12 models.

I'm going to get the 3800x and put it on the b450 tomahawk. The low profile ones look like they'll get in the way of the ram as I've picked up some FlareX 3200cl14 and they are pretty beefy compared to other ram I've seen and I'd like to be able to throw 2 more in there in the future. It's like, pick one, close clearance against the side of the case or close clearance on the ram/pci slot. Man I wished I had known this going in and chose my case more wisely. I can't just sell the case now since I've drilled holes in the front to fit the Noctua silicon mounts for the x3 NF-F12's. Grrr.
