Will either of these CPU coolers interfere with SLI?

I'd like to get either the Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK or the Noctua NH-D15 cpu cooler. Does anyone know if either will block the first PCIe slot on the ASUS X99-PRO? I'd like to possibly run 2 980GTX in the first 2 PCIe slots. If these coolers block that first PCIe slot, any recommendations? Thank you.

Thank you both for your replies. The chart you found, pegotico, is the deal breaker. It assures the Noctua cooler will not block the first PCIe. Thanks again!

From the looks of it the Phantek cooler shouldn't.
