Cooling i7 9700k

Hi! I am building a system and I decided to get a i7 9700k in it. The problem is that i am going with phanteks p350x case and it has maxium height 160mm for cpu cooler. I have been searching for some compatible options and have come with noctua nh-d15s. Is that enough for i7? I am not planning to add any overclock to it yet. You can always suggest your own choises. I prefer air cooler because I am anxious as hell with water cooling leaks/mainentance but aio is always an option.

Thanks

The NH-D15s is the type of cooler if you want to do overclocking on an i7. Even the NH-U12s does an awesome job too compared to AIO coolers. This video shows what the U12s can do: https://youtu.be/23vjWtUpItk . Though the D15 is a more powerful cooler.
