It will fit and it is more than enough of a CPU cooler for that build. It's the best alternative to an open loop custom water cooling setup

Well i bought it yesterday and set all night to assemble it together, and it fits, and even has a few mm spare. But tnx for replying!
I actually wanted to change it to the a41 but it was out of stock.
