The D15S uses an offset which places it higher and further from the PCIe slots. From Noctua's site:

Tailored to provide superior RAM and PCIe compatibility, the NH-D15S is an asymmetrical single fan version of Noctua’s award-winning flagship model, the NH-D15. Thanks to its asymmetrical design, the NH-D15S clears the top PCIe slot on most µATX and ATX motherboards. At the same time, the single fan setup and recessed lower fins guarantee 100% RAM compatibility with memory modules of up to 65mm height. Users who have sufficient room can also upgrade the cooler with either a 120mm or round 140mm fan on the front fin stack for further improved performance in dual fan mode. Topped off with the trusted, pro-grade SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, Noctua’s proven NT-H1 thermal compound and full 6 years manufacturer’s warranty, the NH-D15S forms a complete premium quality solution that combines dual tower efficiency with excellent compatibility and flexible upgrade options.

I have used it on ASUS boards, but they had only a PCIe X1 in the top slot.

So far D15S seems like a good option. But since it's asymmertrical and moved up a bit, will it hit the ceiling of define R5?

...I forgot to add something here. AsRock uses PCIe x1 on top slot as well. So I need to use the first slot, without gpu getting blocked by cooler

Also, I have checked PHANTEKS Enthoo Pro M case, doesn't lookt bad at all
I'm pretty sure both NH-D15 and NH-D15S are same height. The D15S is only 67mm center CPU toward PCIe socket so would work fine.

Thermalright has like 5 different Macho coolers that 140mm fans; Macho Rev. A, Macho Rev. B Macho Zero, Le Grand Macho and Macho Direct all come to mind. There is also the HR-22. HR-22 and Le Grand Macho have offset bases. I'm pretty sure all are 70mm center CPU toward PCIe socket.

Depending on price and availability TRUE Spirit 140 is a very good cooler.
