Currently using a Scythe Mugen PCGH edition on my Boy's rig, cooling a 2600X, on the B450M Steel Legend, in the exceptional Lancool 2 Mesh RGB.

Tried to install his new 5700XT Red Devil last night, using the official Lancool 2 Vert GPU bracket, but GPU is so wide and Mugen heatsink so big, I couldn't get the GPU to fit under CPU heatsink.

Are there any suggestions to a more compact CPU cooler, pref. airflow, but would consider an AIO if good value. Just want to be able to vert-moum his new GPU, without touching the PC CPU cooler

Arctic Freezer 34 esports duo might interest you, a decent 240mm aio will set you back around the region of £80-£100. you could probably resell the mugen though, it's a decent air cooler
I'd go Arctic again for a 240mm Aio for £80

The coolermaster master liquid lite 240mm aio can be had for under £50 and would do a decent job.
