Good CPU Cooler for Intel Core i7 6700k?

I have an InWin 805, basically all glass case. So I want something that looks good. Trying to make a batman theme'd build so black, gray, maybe white colors. Sorry Noctua, maybe replace the stock fans with LTT edition Noctua fans if I can. Should I water cool or nah. I want something quiet they provides excellent airflow. This case already has terrible airflow, and something that worries me is that if I go air cool, it'll look weird having a giant block of a heatsink and fans in my case versus the nice form factor of an AIO water cooler. My case can only fit 156mm cpu coolers.

Most coolers will have ram clearance issues except maybe the Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 8 which has an adjustable fan height and it looks pretty nice too with a piano finish and LED on top.

I watched the one Hardware Canucks did and it was pretty decent.

That CPU cooler unfortunately doesn't fit in my case. It's 163mm and I can only have 156mm.
