What's the best Air cooler for my Mini-Itx?

This is it the current build

Will that cooler fit, or is there a better alternative?

The cooler will fit and the only advantage over what Intel ships is that it is quieter. If you are going to stress the system (e.g., gaming) you need something more robust. You need to look at what dimensions the case permits.

I would suggest finding out what coolers will fit your motherboard. Prodigy has something like 170mmCPU clearance, but I don't know what your motherboard center CPU to PCIe slot or RAM slot distance is. .
