Has anyone used the noctua nhd15 (2 fans) on Intel i7 9700k in a gigabyte z390 aorus master mobo with cougar panzer EVO RGB case with gskill trident z RGB RAM? Did you have to raise the fan above the RAM for clearance? Did you have any issues fitting it in the case?
Hoping for some real world experiences :D but anyone chime in if ya think itll work. Seems like it will theoretically but I would like to know.

So far my research is showing the Panzer cougar EVO RGB to be one of the best cases for GPU, CPU and ambient temperatures. I'm thinking even the stock fans will do but trying to figure out how many additional fans could go in, if they are necessary and what optimal placement would be. I would like to be all air cooling with a noctua nhd15 on my i7 9700k processor. I just want to keep everything as cool as possible to extend life and stability of the system as a whole. Please chime in to the discussion if you have a preferred case with better temps. Opinions on negative, positive. Even water if you're feeling squirrely :). I'm trying to become a cooling specialist (for my own fun hobbies) let's see what we can come up with!! Thanks :D

Panzer Evo is 170mm cooler clearance so it'll fit perfectly, and the memory is 44mm tall which should clear the cutouts on the lower fins of the noctua nh-d15, which is 165mm tall with the fans, no probs.

Here's a thread with some images. Fits on the auros master fine, the 2nd fan is mounted on the right rather on the left over the large vrm heat sink.
