Hi, I will buy Cooler for my CPU but I don't I don't know which one to buy. Because I have MSI B450M ProMax mATX and my CPU's stock fan almost overlap my RAM.

Which would be compatible?
  1. Arctic Freezer 34 Esports (Single Fan Model)
  2. Noctua NH-U12S
  3. Thermaltake UX200
  4. Xigmatek Windpower

My System:
MSI B450M Pro Max MicroATX
Amd Ryzen 5 3600 MSI 5600XT Mech OC
2x Corsair Vengeance 8 GB 3000 mHz
Samsung EVO 860
Corsair Spec Delta

All those coolers are about 3mm shy of your case's supported CPU cooler height (160mm).

The Noctua NH-L12S would work well with that CPU and is low profile, also has good RAM compatibility.

Does the stock have the same width as the fan?

There is less than 1 cm between stock fan and ram slots.
