Country?
Budget?
What case?
Overclocking?

Reason I ask is because you could buy a $60-$70 tower cooler, up to a $150 AIO.

Just say no to AIO. Noctua is as good at a lower price. The only reason I would suggest AIO over Noctua or another large, quality HSF is if you need to move the box regularly. A large HSF needs to be taken off to prevent damage if you nice the box because it's a lot of mass just hanging there off the board.

If it is a 9900 (non K) you won't need anything exotic. I suggest a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo for my go-to budget cooler.

If you are gentle and lay the system on its side you can probably get away with not removing it, but you are definitely taking a risk.

Unless you are tumbling the chassis around or the HSF has a crappy retention mechanism. It is unlikely you’ll run into issues moving the chassis. Water-cooling is far more prone to portability issues.

I don't like the idea of hanging over a pound of metal that is strapped (securely) to a motherboard and having it bounced and flexing the board. Call me paranoid.

Noctua's mounts are solid as a rock.

I'm shipped individual 4U rack units with them inside cross country without problems, many times. Best narrow ILM coolers by a mile, outperform anything and quieter to boot.

Heavy HSF fearmongering is overblown. AIO leaking on the other hand, not so much.
2018: at 120 Zen cores and counting, so pretty much done with intel on the desktop.
E5 2696v4 22c44t 2.2~3.7Ghz - The last great gleam of the pre-nerf HEDT era.
E5 1680v2 8c16t 4.5Ghz - "Yes Virginia, there were unlocked xeons" /weep for them.

Anything that bolts through the motherboard should be fine. Clip-ons are potentially concerning.

That's why CPU have been equipped with IHS and modern sockets have backplates and mounting points for bolts. This is so much better than Socket A/Socket 370-era running around with naked silicon using clip-on HSF. Infamous Golden Orbs and it siblings killed countless chips.

I prefer coolers that bolt through the board just so I don't have to mess with fiddly little retention springs or catches in awkward little spaces.
Do not meddle in the affairs of archers, for they are subtle and you won't hear them coming.
