CPU-Fan for Ryzen 1500X and later

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there. I am searching for a air cooler for my 1500X. With the stock cooler the temps get pretty high which aren't suitable for my room (kinda 40+ degrees when PC turned on and gaming). I want to use that cooler later on other CPUs (mainly AMD Ryzens). What coolers do you prefer in a range from 0$ (0€) to 100$ (100€)?
I searched and find many alluring to buy like these:

  • Be Quiet Dark Rock Slim
  • Be Quiet Shadow Rock Slim Tower
  • Some Noctua ones

FYI: My case maximum height is 16cm.

40c is a very fine temp, max temp for ryzen is 95c, so you are far of from that

What does that mean exactly?

 

But for premium experience the noctua coolers cant be beaten.

any preferences to size?

 

should it be standard sized like a Nh-U12A or slimmer like a Dark Rock 4. or can it be massive like the nh-d15s

 

all of these options fit btw

With 40 degrees i meant my room temperature when i turn on my pc with a game. In some games my CPU climbs up to 85+ degrees.

What would you prefer for slim size and for a bigger size?

Exactly.

 

If you needed to choose would you rather buy the noctua nh-u12a or the dark rock 4? (Or something compareable?)

They are both good options.

Either is fine. The nh-U12A is peak performance. The dark rock 4 being a bit slimmer. 

 

Nh-U12A is comparable to its larger cousin, the nh-d14

I am asking you here. Id go for smaller than the nh-d14. Just to not cover too much with heatsink. Tho thats just a preference. There is also the downdraft cooler that is the Dark Rock TF. Goves you more height clearance.

Thank you for your help. I guess I go with a more slim one. I appreciate your help and your suggestions.

Ah I rembembered a question I also wanted to ask. Are there any differences between coolers with a price of i.e. 32$ and 70$? Sometimes I see nearly the same specs on some coolers which are priced very differently. For example: 

EKL Ben Nevis

  • dB(A): 8-20
  • rpm: 400-1600
  • air flow rate: 95.1 m3/h
  • cost: ~24$ (€)

be quiet! Dark Rock 4

  • dB(A): 10.5-21.4
  • rpm: 1400
  • air flow rate: couldn't find it
  • cost: ~62$ (€)

Were does that price difference come from? Why would the be quiet! double the price of the EKL Ben Nevis when performaing on paper worse?

Dark rock 4 is much bigger 8 vs 6 heatpipes.. NH-U12A is also an option, but may be a little more, but amazing either way.

A better cooler isn't going to change the amount of heat the system produces. If you're aiming to lower the temperature of your room, you need to better ventilate the room.

Ben Nevis Advanced (RGB) or ID Cooling SE-214X (RGB) are good coolers for 4-6core cpu-s.

 

I'd get the Ben Nevis Advanced RGB due to black design& lighting, and quiet fans. Apart from fans, the ID 214X or RGB has the same heatsink as I recall.
