I have a stock AMD cooler with my R5 2600x and i am looking to upgrade it to something that has a much greater cooling capacity. My case is the MB600l and its cpu cooler clearance is 163mm.
I originally wanted to get the be quite dark rock pro 4 however the high is 162.8 mm and I don't think that is enough.
So is that enough clearance and if not what other cpu cooler would be good instead.
If you have any good air cooling sloutions that are 160mm or less

it doesn't seem like much clearance (but is enough)
I do think most the tower coolers are similar, and assuming the case specs are accurate you would have room to put side panel on without touching cooler.

All of that is assuming no imperfections in the chassis height, motherboard mounting, and the cooler heatsink...
You also don't know if Cooler Master is posting the exact height, or rounding.

Too close for comfort, IMO.
The other option is that i look for a different cooler.
I was recommend a hyper 212 by someone as a cheaper option that would fit. do you know of any other good options that would fit.
