All these fat arse coolers make me just want to get a Hyper 212 and forget about getting something that just barely fits for a few degrees better temps/lower noise. Wish they'd just standardize the spacings for cases/mobos for medium and XL and divide coolers into the too, too much pain in the bum checking each cooler to see if they fit!

Mugen 5 for sure fits but it is going to be on the 50gbp range

The ID-Cooling SE-224-XT doesn't seem to be available in the UK.

Think I'd rather go for one of the cheaper smaller coolers than the Mugen at that price.

Also @doyll I gave the wrong mobo model before, I'm actually using a Maximus Gene VI:

Hope that doesn't bugger up which coolers would fit too much

That changes things a lot. There are now more coolers that will fit.

Asus Maximus Gene VI center CPU to near side of PCIe socket is about 72.5mm and to near side of RAM socket is about 52.5mm with RAM only in front of CPU / cooler. Now we can use cooler with back offset to clear RAM.

Because larger coolers with more heatipipes cool better then can cool a lower wattage CPU with much less noise. I always use big coolers because of this. My systems like i7 6700K are inaudible unless working extremely hard like rendering graphics and even then just loud enough to audible. Same goes for i5 8500 65w TDP under Macho and even older i7-920 @ 4.2GHZ under TRUE Spirit 140 Power & i7 980 under PH-TC14PE systems.

Did more looking and seems there is kinda a shortage of 4x 6mm heatpipe 120mm fan coolers in the £20-30 range right now. Same is true of decent 6x 6mm /4x 8mm heatpipe coolers in the £30-40 range are also thin supply at the moment. Some sites are saying they expect some new stock end of the month, but that could be pie in the sky. A used Hyper 212 sold for £24.60 on ebay.

Your case accpets coolers up to 165mm tall.

I think with a little shopping around for a few days, maybe a week and you can find a good cooler for £30-35. That is what I would be looking for if it was me. But if you really want a small 4x 6mm heatpipe 120mm fan cooler it will do the job, just not as quietly as a better cooler will. To me paying morefor a better cooler is an investment for future builds. So instead of spending £30 now and £30 when you build next system I would spend £35-45 now and use it for a couple or more builds.
