That air cooler weight thing was debunked some time ago.
The mounting hardware of today's coolers - at least the well known ones - leverage their weight over the entire mobo, which is secured to the chassis, thus leveraging the weight even further.
Cooler > motherboard > chassis

Also, there's coolers that weigh in at 1400g without issue, so what's a 440g one...
