Problem is I don't know yet - none of the X570 are for sale yet. If there will be no decent affordable (under $200) X570 board then I'll go for MSI X470 Gaming Plus. As far as I've checked, none of these coolers should interfere with PCIe x16 slot on modern motherboards.
I suggest you wait to buy cooler until you know what motherboard you are going to get. Buying a cooler before having motherboard is like buying tires without having the car you plan to put them on .. you are guessing and hoping they will fit.


Where are you located? What country?
