Using your posted links.

 

According to the heat sink specs heat sink height is 165mm.

According to the case specs maximum heat sink height allowed 180mm.

 

I would say yes although you are really pushing the limit.

I'm sure the case specs are figuring the maximum heat sink height from motherboard installed.

 

I would contact Cooler Master and make sure.

Give them the heat sink model and case model you are planning to use.

 

I would also contact the motherboard manufacturer and make sure that heat sink will fit on the motherboard properly without any clearance problems.

I'm grumpy because I can be not because I'm old.

It's a bit of a monster.  There's a review plus many installation pictures on a Ryzen setup here - https://www.thinkcomputers.org/noctua-nh-d15-se-am4-cpu-cooler-review/3/

 

The fan overhangs the memory slots, but otherwise they had no clearance problems on that particular build.  Personally I prefer low profile memory like Corsair LPX for reasons like this.
