          The Noctua D15 should be fine as long as your case can handle the height. I would suggest DDR4 2666+ for ram. Make sure the timings listed for the ram are the same for the first 3 such as 15 15 15. If they are different such as 15 16 16, I would avoid those. Jedec spec for DDR4 is CL15 for DDR4 2133. The higher the rated speed of the ram the higher grade chips that have to be used. You will want DDR4 2400 and above for realtime playback with 4K.
