Not possible, unless you flip the mb (maybe) and put some longer standoffs. And then you can forget about using an atx mb.I was thinking of putting the gpu flat under the MB, like the NCase.
Why would an AIO in an NR200 starve airflow to the GPU?I tried running a 5950 and a 3090 on an nr200. One or the other would suffer. In order to get the CPU to boost well I had to run a 240mm AIO which then starved airflow to the video card. But if I switched to air for the CPU, the video card overwhelms the cooling capacity of the smallish air-cooler you have to use.

I had an NR200. I didn't really like it. But airflow/general cooling capability, was not one of the the things I disliked.
Yeah, you can't fit an NH-D15 in an NR200. But you can fit a Scythe Fuma 2 or something similar.The back of my 3090 FE got hot because of the memory under the backplate on the backside of the PCB. I got the best results when I just put 120mm fans on the side to blow air across the back of the video card and the width of the AIO radiator ended up putting it over top of the video card slightly. I have a 3070 I could swap in instead, but I kind of like the idea of a small powerhouse. Maybe "starved" isn't the best word, but it wasn't as effective as not having an AIO in there.
I was thinking of revisiting it again, honestly and see if I couldn't make it work better. The NR200 isn't the best for air heatsink compatibility either though compared to something like the TU150.
Plus, I "only" have a 700W Platinum PSU (Silverstone) that I bought when the SF750 wasn't in stock. My experience has been that even 850W is pushing it with a 3090 and 5950x.

The NR200 has bigger problems, though. Like a terrible, useless mounting system for the top fans. And middling QC for screw hole alignment.
Well....I'm assuming the newer revision Fuma 2 fits. Its the same height as the Mugen 5 Rev. B, which does fit, even with the glass side panel (which has a millimeter or two less clearance than the regular side panel).I never looked into the fuma2 because the specifications say it wouldn't fit by a couple millimeters. I have an OG fuma that definitely would fit because it's slightly smaller, but I ended up just swapping out the CPU into an ATX setup.
I agree the top mount fans are useless. I didn't have any QC issues in my case though.
