Go with the U9S, the U9B SE2 is an old model that doesn't even have PWM control yet. Also, the U9S's fan will clear your RAM whereas the U9B's will overhang it.

is there a preference in liquid metal, thermal paste or anything else?

Noctua comes with premium paste. If you need better cooling, look for bigger heatsink.

If you prefer Noctua's 90mm cooler, I would have recommended the NH-D9L as it's a dual tower 90mm cooler for more surface area just looks like as it's the miniature of NH-D15S, but I'm not sure about its performance.

The NH-U9S is larger and better. The NH-D9L is a smaller cooler at a height of 110mm meant for full 3U compliance.
