Which cooler (Ryzen 7)?

The NH-D15 cools better, is easier to install, and has a longer warranty. The DRP4 is quieter. Take your pick.

What case do you currently have and what's unsatisfactory about your current cooling?

Hi

 

I've recently upgraded my pc to a Ryzen 7 3700x and an MSI X470 Gaming Pro Carbon, but I didn't upgrade my case, and my current case is total garbage and doesn't fit a proper CPU cooler.

 

So I'm getting the "Coolermaster Mastercase H500P Mesh"

 

But I'm wodnering if I should get the "Be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4" (as I'm using the regular Wraith Prism), or would the Noctua NH-D15 be a better option to get?

Got the Coolermaster Scout 2, it has no possibility of mounting a radiator properly nor having a proper air cooler without struggling.

 

But will probably go with the DRP4 as the D15 has a long delivery time for the AM4 here.

What struggles are you referring to? There are some examples of some AIO's mounted in the same case here: https://pcpartpicker.com/builds/by_part/r2PfrH#qq=1

The NH-D15 and DRP4 should still fit with the fans lowered but it may be tight.

Well yeah, you can fit specific radiators at certain places, but at the top it'll require you to remove your dust filter. I didn't want to risk the fact that the coolers had to be lowered, especially in combination with the RAM.
