Thanks for the input! All Noctua coolers except for U12A require separate AM4 mounting kits but those kits are readily available in retail, cost $5 and I've included their cost in the listed prices.
Regarding the staggered heat pipes - is that a good or a bad thing?
Also is it worth getting D15S over U14S purely for performance in your opinion? Or is the difference too small to even bother considering it?

M14G rated @ 240w, LGMRT rated @ 320w. Also, LGMRT is big, but in a compact way.

Since you cant run TS140P, my money would be on LGMRT or U12A, and out of those two I would choose Thermalright again.
Thanks for the input. Height is not an issue since all of those are below 170mm tall. Sadly, LGMRT is completely out of stock now so why is your money on U12A?
