My case is Cooler Master MB511, and motherboard is B450 Tomahawk max.
It can support max height of 165mm for cpu cooler as per spec sheet (Specifications)

I am looking for Deepcool AS500. It has good reviews and want to pair it with my Ryzen 5 3600 (upgrading soon to 5600X)

As per the spec sheet, it has a height of 164mm with fan attached - Link

So, considering these things, will this cooler fit in my case, or will it be troublesome?

Additional info: I was looking for something better than popular budget ones like deepcool gammaxx, arctic freezer 34 etc. So this cooler AS500 seemed better.
