Cooler for 4-PCIE slot X570 MB

Hi guys,
I want a good air cooler but my X570 Godlike has a bad PCI-E slot placement meaning many aircoolers won't fit (well, even the Wraith Prism is a tight fit and makes it tricky to unlock the PCIE slot to remove the GPU). I've tried a D15SE I had laying around but it overlaps the first PCIE and all other slots are like x8 or even only x4.

Does anybody know what cooler will actually fit a motherboard with this layout? No AiO's as the pump noise from my GPU is already irritating me enough

Thanks, I remember Mugen since the Rev.2 version - a classic!

By the way, is the socket-to-PCIE slot distance a kind of standard or is it entirely up to the manufacturer? The PCI-E slots do have to line up with the case, obviously but what about the socket placement? Let's say - boards with 3x full length PCIE slots have the socket placed xxMM from the top slot, boards with 4x PCIE at xxMM and so on.
