Cryorig H7 in a 180mm-width case

Microsoft Windows xp professional w/serv...

Specs: Windows 7 Pro
1)Will a Cryorig H7 (145mm height, http://www.cryorig.com/h7.php) fit in a 180mm width case with Ryzen 5 3600?
2)What is the maximum cooler height for such a case?
3)Cooler for a Ryzen 5 3600: How much better (temperature wise) are Alpenfoehn Sella (https://www.alpenfoehn.de/en/products/cpu-cooler/sella) and Cryorig H7 (CRYORIG H7 | Research Idea Gear) compared to Wraith Stealth (stock cooler)?
4)Alpenfoehn Sella vs Cryorig H7: Which is better and how much?

Thanks

Is there some reason why you have to buy from a particular vendor? If you order online, you'll have plenty of choices. The H7 doesn't get particularly good reviews.

As for the fit, there's no way for us to know. Where are you coming up with 180mm for the width? Is that measured from outside the case? You need the measurement from the top of the CPU with the board installed to the inside of the side panel, plus you should allow some clearance.

The Sella seems to have a better review & it should fit in your case with no problem.

Still, being that you're not a gamer & won't be overclocking, I think an aftermarket HSF is a waste of money. Invest that $30-50 elsewhere - RAM, graphics, SSD, better CPU - or go out to dinner.

Thanks. The width of my case is 18cm: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-TA-8G...
As for the other questions, I have my reasons.
I knew your last url, but I need someone with experience with the coolers I mentioned.

I have had good results with Noctua with i5 Devil's Canyon in moderate OC and idle in the 30C's Plus there are AMD versions and mounting kits:

I'm curious, have you ever built a computer before?

The problem is you're posting in a predominately US forum about HSFs that aren't popular here. All we can do is post links to reviews of the HSFs you're asking about, or advise you about ones we're familiar with. I'm a fan of the Cooler Master Hyper series.

I will not build the pc myself. I will just select the parts.
Cooler Master is too high for my computer case.

"I will not build the pc myself. I will just select the parts."

That explains a lot. I would love to see the parts list. All we currently know is the CPU & the computer case (which appears to be from about 2010). Who's going to build the PC? Why aren't you asking that person for advice?

You said your case is 180mm which I assume is the outside dimension. The motherboard will sit on "stand-offs", then there's the thickness of the board, the thickness of the CPU socket, & thickness of the CPU to take into account. Plus you don't want the top of the heatsink touching the side panel so you have to allow for clearance. You're going to have to do the math to determine the max heatsink height or install the board with the CPU in the socket & then take a measurement. Or you can just use the stock HSF & be done with it. But what do I know? I've only been building & repairing PCs for 25 years.

Thanks. I think I might end up with an Alpenfoehn Sella, just to be on the safe side.

No, the safe side would be using the stock AMD HSF. Using an aftermarket HSF might possibly void the CPU warranty.

"This Limited Warranty shall be null and void if the AMD microprocessor which is the subject of this Limited Warranty is used with any heatsink/fan (HSF) that does not support operation of the AMD processor in conformance with AMD’s publicly available specifications. Use of HSF solutions determined by AMD as incapable of such performance or which are determined to have contributed to the failure of the processor shall invalidate the warranty."

Too High then look at:
https://www.newegg.com/noctua-nh-l9...

If you are looking for advanced cooling, why have you limited your choice of case? Do you own it already? Did you select for price only?

There is no reason to upgrade the CPU cooling unless you are overclocking or live in a hot climate without air conditioning. Please note that you can always change out the CPU heat sink later if you find that you need it (though there will be a cost, especially if you cannot do it yourself).

I own the case.
Many people have heat problems with Ryzen 5 3600 and solved their problems with a new cooler.
My search has come to an end.
Thanks
