Since I wasn't able to create an account on hardforum without it getting deleted I'll post this here. I drew up and had my coworker print a shroud for the black ridge + 12x15 combo. I'm not actually able to test it right now though since my zsa4 won't even ship until mid june. One of the possible problems regarding vibration is that I had to remove the rubber pads from the side of the fan that touches against the heatsink.
You mind sharing the file? I can 3d print it and test it myself

Can anyone confirm whether the ASRock Z390 Phantom’s VRM heatsink needs to be removed when using the Black Ridge with a 120mm slim fan? It’s extremely difficult to search for this information (niche within a niche within a niche).
I used a hacksaw to cut part of the VRM heatsink, thankfully it a groove on the heatsink that was the perfect angle to cut part of the heat sink easily

I had to pull them off to install the blackridge even with stock fan. It’s only 2 screws on the back of the motherboard.
