CPU cooler advice please

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm going to buy a Ryzen 5 3600 and a MSI B450i Gaming Plus AC. What CPU cooler should I buy if I plan on doing little to moderate overclocking?

 

A couple things to know, the cooler can't be taller than 6.3"/160mm. Also, considering the price of the 3600 ($200), I don't feel it's necessary to spend upwards of $100 on a cooler.

 

My reasoning could be completely wrong but I'm open to any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance 😃

Does anyone know a website that provides cpu cooler temp/noise benchmarks? This way I can justify spending more or find a way to save a little.

 

Thanks for all the help so far everyone!
