I have a cooler master lite 5 rgb case and Im looking for a fan to cope with my cpu i7 9700k and I found a Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 the only thing is that if it will fit in my case.
I need a fan to cope with my cpu so Im looking for 250w
What do you guys think help and recommend.

Too exact, IMO. There could be a slight machining error in the cooler baseplate or heatpipes... or even in the chassis; it may not be exactly 163mm.

NH-D15S
Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT
240/280/360mm AIO

All that said, I think you have bigger problems than just cooling that cpu...
Cooler Master's Masterbox Lite and Q300/500 are known hot boxes; airflow is choked.
Cooling efficiency is only going to be as good as what the chassis is capable of.

It should cope with CPU just fine.
Im more worried about fitting it in :D its 162.8mm height
and the case says this: Clearance - CPU Cooler 163mm/6.41"
So technically there is 0.02mm space

Or should I go for the normal version be quiet Dark Rock 4 instead of Pro
The only thing is that its weaker by 50w. Would it cool the Cpu normally as I don't want the temp to go over 80 again.
