I'm stupidity putting together a x299 system and I wanted to go air for cooling, but don't have a lot of room for a tall air cooler. My case despite being big only fits about a u3 class cooler. Since I will likely not be overclocking the CPU do you think something like a NH-U9S or NH-D9DX, would they handle a stock 9800x or 10900x? if not what wold be a good u3 class cooler that would fit the build if anything? I can go water as I have the parts but I wanted to switch to air as its far more simple and less work. 
 
Thanks.

    Would you consider an AIO solution? 

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X,  Corsair Mp600 Pro M.2, 128GB DDR4  Crosshair VIII Hero, RX 6900 XT Associate Code: H5U80QBH6BH0AXF. I am NOT an employee of EVGA

    The case can't fit a AOI, no fan slots anywhere near the CPU. The closest fan slot is below the CPU, its a single 120mm and still to far and in a tight spot.
    I have a full blown water cooling setup in the case but I wanted to go back to air. Its not the end of the world if I use water cooling. I just wanted the simplicity of air if I ever wanted to change parts and not having to worry about a leak or failed pump is a plus.
    And the case does have goodish air flow, its just very old (mid 90s) and the fan placement is non ideal for a modern system or AOI.
     
     
    EDIT:
    If you wanted ideas of how the case it built I have some photos of it here.

    Do you have enough room for the air cooler? D9Dx is 4" tall I think. It's using a 92mm fan instead of 120mm. I haven'ty used it so not sure. Noctua usually puts out a great product. 
     
    AIO thought: Drill/cut a hole big enough to fit the cooling block through. On observation, it looks like you would be just above the reservoir, and the other side would be left of the 24 pin plug. {If there is enough room} You could mount rad in the drive bays possibly. Might need some fans to get the hot air out.
     
    Is there not enough room to mount rad right in front where the fans are across from GPU?

    Yes I do,it will be a tight fit tho.

    Why would I go though all that trouble when I all ready have a water cooling setup in the case? AIO cooler are not all that reliable anyway.

    No those fans are 92mm. And I'm not using a junk AIO cooler anyway.

    How well do you think a phobya uc-1 extream with a slim 240mm hwlabs rad wold handle a 9800x or 10900x? I'll be using a 500lph pump at 5v and 1/2 tubbing. I can't see it being a problem a stock speeds.
    I'll be using 1200rpm XSPC rad fans and gutted 25mm thick spacer fans as well.
