Air Coolers smaller than 158 mm

I'm currently looking to upgrade the stock cooler on my Ryzen 5 1600 CPU, but the maximum clearance in my case (Cooler Master Masterbox Lite 3.1)  for a cooler is 158 mm, and I've researched many high-end air coolers, and all of them are taller than 158 mm. I'm also looking for a cooler that will last a while, as I plan to use it for the next 4-5 years, and one that will cool my CPU effectively, as I do plan to overclock it in the future. I'm just wondering what the best air coolers smaller than 158 mm are, and advice is greatly appreciated.

For tower line ups there are Scythe with any of their 120mm coolers, or any other brand with downdraft type coolers..

I use Scythe Mugen 5 rev B. It's slightly shorter than Hyper 212 evo. It has full compatibility with tall heatsink ram and rgb ram.
