Very bad answer
1. Noctua registers only the socket fit of the board
2. Noctua does not record the fit of a collar to a specific board
3. Noctua in customer service does not know and can not know matching a choker to a specific board

Please note this is a user to user forum and if you require proper technical information then you should contact Gigabyte support. Answers offered here are from end users (like yourself) and should be accepted accordingly.

As dmdilks has stated, YOU need to research which cooler you want to fit to your system.

Any cooler designed for the LGA1700 socket, will fit the motherboard. If you are concerned about clearance for RAM modules or other components then you will need to do further research but, from my own experience, lower profile RAM modules offer the best clearance for fitting Noctua Coolers.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
