Question Suggestions for Noctua cooler for Ryzen 3700X?

I intend to upgrade to an AMD AM4 Ryzen 3700X (65W) setup sometime soon. I've narrowed my CPU cooler options down to a Noctua, but I'm having a hard time deciding which one would be best.

This NewEgg search is narrowed down to a select few Noctua coolers for this specific processor.

Considering this is for a MicroATX case (Corsair Carbide 240 or alternate), I prefer a low profile/flat cooler. But I'm flexible!
Would any knowledgeable people out there be so kind as to help me analyze narrow these options further?

Thank you in advance.

Carbide 240, eh? 120mm max for an air cooler...
3700X...
You've got just ONE decent option with that height limit: the NH-C14S. Other Noctua coolers are either too tall, or just not as strong as the C14S.
