Stock Ryzen Air Cooler question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im always looking for the best bang for buck.  Currently getting parts brought in to replace my FX rig.  I can either spend $10-12 on an AM4 bracket kit for my H100i GTX AIO or use the air cooler that comes with my CPU (or I have one left over from my Ryzen 7 build still if I get just a CPU off ebay) (I do have a side built with water cooling but would have to order an AM4 cpu block for it specifically and use the parts I have but don't want to do that just yet)

 

The H100i is nice, don't get me wrong, handles my FX like a boss.  So I have a couple questions from those of you who have the air cooler in use:

 

Can you hear it?  I have a very good airflow CoolerMaster HAF case, so that wont be the problem, but I also don't want to hear it.  My AIO I keep pump at 3000rpm (cant hear it) and fans at 40% (barely audible) and the results are great temps.  

 

What are your temps like?  I like things being cool.  How is the dissipation in a well vented case/open air rig (the air flow I have may as well be open air, nothing sits in the case and gets hot)?  

 

Thanks for your time.

I don't OC my 2600, so this may not be incredibly helpful, but of the fans in my case I think the Wraith Spire is probably the least noticeable if it's noticeable at all. My GPU can put out a little more noise than I'd like, and I put a cheapo as my exhaust, which was a poor choice for noise, but it effectively exhausts a 3 fan intake (so... pros and cons there. I'm not a silence fiend.)

 

My CPU during gameplay never goes above 71c or so, so I would say for non OC tasks it is sufficient.
