best buy quiet air cooler up to 170mm height

Building ITX system (probably ryzen 2700X, maybe i7-8700K) and not sure which would be best buy quiet cooler that doesn't weight a lot? Anything around ~70€? If OC would give me a lot more performance, I might do that and get better cooler..
What do you think? IS it better to go with water cooling radiator?
If air cooler, must be up to 170mm because of the ITX case.

What case and motherboard do you have?
I ask because one of the best cooler under €70 is TRUE Spirit 140 Power for €55.90 on Amazon.de . It is 171mm tall it will probably fit in a case with 170mm CPU clearance specification .. and it is 155mm wide / 77.5mm center CPU toward PCIe sockets. If you want the best and are willing to work a little harder to install it because is will not set without falling over until mount is tightened up is the Le Grand Macho RT for €65.36 on Amazon.de .. It is quieter and cooler than anything else, but just barely. TRUE Spirit 140 Power is as good and couple dB louder, and with high airflow extreme performance fan like TY-143 is 7-9c cooler but also extremely loud and needs similar case fans to supply it with cool air.

Air cooler sound is going to depend mostly on the fan(s) used. The heatsink will play a role in the sound profile (material, fin arrangement, etc.), but the fans actually make the noise. Are you sure the limitation is 170mm? Very few air coolers surpass that height.

Case will be fractal core 500, MB Gigabyte AB350 ITX (not sure do I need to take care abour memory.. looking at some gskill 3000mhz which on the picture shows pretty high heatsinks).

I could go with fractal node 202 but it doesn't support water cooling and I'm anyway paranoid a bit about some liquid slipping out.

Unfortunately, amazon.de doesn't ship to my country much.

Well, Core 500 is tiny with very poor venting / poor case airflow .. and Node 202 is even worse.
Core 500 is 250mm (W) x 203mm (H) x 367mm (D) .. that is a foot print of 250mm wide x 367mm deep.
Something like Meshify is 217mm (W) x 453mm (H) x 413mm (D) .. that is foot print of 217mm wide x 413mm deep. Not as wide, a little deeper and a little taller, but it has room in front for 3x 120mm / 2x 140mm fans for good case airflow .. but stock fans are not much good so I would advise 2x 140mm better fans for case.

I'm trying to remember. I think someone else used similar or maybe same motherboard and Le Grand Macho just fit in .. or maybe it was Macho rev.B which is still plenty of cooler.

Meshify C is way too heavy.. 4.5kg of core 500 is upper limit., and even with that I don't feel comfortable.. ideally I want least as possible.
One shop sells Le Grand Macho but not RT and don't have AM4 brackets.. maybe I could order.

The Node 202 can be modified to support liquid cooling. Bitwit did so with his "go anywhere, do anything" PC.

I've seen already review where he does it and he opens AIO system and I dont' want to do that. I would rather cut the case itself . But case seems so small, not much airflow..

core 500's air space looks great

Small cases typically don't have very good airflow, but you wouldn't need much cooling just the CPU. The CPU cooler clearance of the Node 202 is the main reason I'm leaning toward an FTZ01B-E if I go that route. I'll probably get a Meshify C Mini since I'll have room for more drives.

mounted Macho rev.B into little ITX build into 190x277x254mm [WxDxH] Raijintek Metis.

Think he modded case with 2x additional vents too.
