Hi, so the stock cooler on ryzen 3600 is giving really high temps at a constant 80 to 90 degrees when gaming, tried reapplying paste and cooler, which reduced noise but temps r still crazy.

Decided to go the dark rock or the noctua route. Worried about ram clearance, have viper patriots measuring at 44.4mm. Also case max clearance is 165mm

After researching, the nh d-15 has no chance of fitting due to its clearance of 32mm, cant move fan either

The dark rock pro 4, has a 40mm clearance apparently, but many ppl say it can work with g skill ram (bulky af)

Other safer option is the noctua nh u12s, single fan and no issues with clearance.

What is the best option for me, price is not an issue Help is greatly appreciated:)

Max chassis clearance: 165mm.
Viper Patriot: 44.4mm.
Naked ram stick: 31mm.
So, any cooler whose front fan sits over the ram will need to be raised 13.4mm.
Dark Rock Pro 4: 162.8mm - will not fit.
NH-D15: Already at the 165mm limit

NH-U12S, NH-U14S, NH-U12A, NH-D15S would all fit.
Dark Rock Slim and Dark Rock 4 would fit.
