Question Can the Asus Rog Strix z690 E-Gaming or Rog Maximus Z690 Hero fit the NH-U12S heatsink?

Wondering if all the included cooling and visual design "stuff" that's all over the board and around the CPU socket will interfere with installing an NH-U12S on the CPU, or if there's enough clearance.

For reference:

Noctua HSF: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C9EYVGY/

Hero: https://rog.asus.com/us/motherboards/rog-maximus/rog-maximus-z690-hero-model/
E-Gaming: https://rog.asus.com/us/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-z690-e-gaming-wifi-model/
All you have to do is check Noctua's compatibility list. The Hero is good to go with the MP78 kit - https://ncc.noctua.at/motherboards/model/ASUS-ROG-Maximus-Z690-Hero-5310
You can check the other yourself.
