Looking for a cpu cooler for an 8700k in a inwin 301

As the title says, I'm currently looking for something to replace my h100i. The biggest issue is space, I had to remove one of the fans on the h100 to fit a msi rtx 2070.

Max cpu cooler height is 160mm according to Inwins site

 

The current coolers I've been looking at are the Phanteks ph-tc12dx, Arctic Freezer 33 esports edition, or something like the deepcool captain 120ex. 

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Stuff a Noctua NH-D15S in there. It comes with a single fan (second fan can't fit anyways because of RAM compatibility, unless you mount it at horizontally), and I can fit one in my S340 Elite which also quotes a max cooler height of 160mm.

NZXT's specs for the S340 Elite:

My NH-D15S (with chromax fan, same size as the stock one) in my S340 Elite (side panel fits on fine with a few mm of clearance):

Should juuuuust fit and it's pretty much the best air cooler you can stuff in there, other than the Thermalright LGR RT:

Which is 159mm tall vs the 160mm an NH-D15S is with a single fan.

The Arctic Freezer 33 eSports Edition is the dual fan one, it's the 33 eSports One that only has the one fan, I own that model with the one fan.

Can you measure the clearance available between the rad and the graphics card? You might be able to fit a slim 15mm fan instead like the NF-A12x15. 

I'm not entirely sure but you might be able to mount fans on the outside of the front panel fan bracket as well. 

If you ever need help with a build, read the following before posting: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/3061-build-plan-thread-recommendations-please-read-before-posting/

There's only a 3 mm gap between the radiator and the gpu. As for mounting the fans on the other side, you can but you run into the same issue that the wall-mart pc had. 3-4 mm air gap.

What are your temps? It still might be worth sticking with the current cooler unless you want to shell out for a large air cooler since it should still be at least as good as a 120mm rad with a single fan. 

Is there anything behind the solid front panel? There seems to be almost ~23mm of clearance after installing a 15mm fan in front of the rad.

Temps are in the upper 60's to low 70's while playing bf4, upper 20's to low 30's idle. 

Yeah, I was wrong.. There's a 28.5mm gap between the front of the case and fan mount. With a standard fan installed it leaves a 9.5mm gap for air. 

 

After looking online, seems most people mount the fans between the front panel and radiator as exhaust fans...
