Hi, I recently upgraded to a Ryzen 9 3900x and have been using the stock Prizm Wraith cooler but wanting something a bit better now but wasn't too sure about the ram clearance and case clearance Id need.

I'm using an X570 motherboard with Crucial Ballistix elite RAM in a Corsair Obsidian 750D full tower case.

I've been looking at the NH-D15 or Be quiet dark rock pro 4 but I don't believe either of them would fit in dual fan mode because of my RAM height?

You can unscrew the top rail off the ram to lower the height of the sticks. If you are running them at stock speed I don't think you would have a problem with them overheating. If you did that then the Be Quiet cooler would fit.

Thank you guys, I've ended going with the alphenon brochen 3 as I'd prefer to do air cooling and it seems like an easy to mount and cheap cooler.

All installed, I also added another 2 140mm case fans and I'm now getting 20C lower max temperatures on load :)
