What cooler are you currently using and why do you want a new one?

Where are you shopping / located? Budget?

I have a Ryzen 5 2600 as well.  It's not a hot chip so all I use is the Wraith cooler that came with it.  So... why do you need a new one?  And whatever the reason is, just know you don't need a super beefy one.

Can't  go wrong with a Noctua hd 15

Actually you can. If you care to read what OP is asking. I'll give you a hint. Width: 16.51cm and Omen Obelisk.

 

Now that I got the salt out. Since its prebuilt, there won't be numbers about how tall cooler will fit. Looking at reviews etc. it seems to hold ATX PSU just. And normal sized GPU. So thats less than optimal. As it means that  CPU cooler max height is probably around 140mm. It might be more, but probably not much less.

 

What we would like is that you measure how tall cooler you can actually fit there. If you have printer available, you can use this neat tool provided by Cryorig http://www.cryorig.com/depthchecker.php

If not, then using string and ruler will work just fine. Even with just ruler. Use the motherboard surface as the starting point.

Its not the cooler that comes with the 2600 cpu. I have no idea what brand they are since there are no labels on them and i cant find any info about them. I want a new one cuz the one that i have right now can make the cpu a bit toasty and i also wanted something that looks a bit better than the one i have. My budget is around 50 bucks

I don't know if you can get the RGB Wraith prism cooler separately...  if so that would look pretty sick.  The Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition CPU Cooler, looks pretty good for the money IMO.

Its not precise but the gap from the cpu to the side of the case is around 13 to 12 cm

Can you be a bit more specific? There are a number of coolers right at the height of 125mm.

I made a mistake. Its around 14.1 to 14.5 cm. I dont know if i really like those big bulky coolers. If its something a bit more low profile that would be great

Arctic Freezer 12 / 7X? Should be under 20€. Just check that the ram is not too close.

That seems fine. Do temps get any higher? Are you otherwise unsatisfied with the cooler?

The temp seems to cap out at 81 Celsius and sounds like a jet engine. Other than that i just wanted something a bit higher quality and something that looks a bit nicer wouldn't be a bad thing. If you say that those temps are fine then i dont really need something too powerful, just an upgrade would be nice

An aftermarket cooler is good if you're aiming to lower noise.

That's a bit of an upgrade. For a bit more, the Katana 5 or M9 Plus would be better:

https://www.pricerunner.dk/pl/184-4867210/Computer-koeling/Cryorig-M9-Plus-Sammenlign-Priser

 

If you can check and see that the clearance is enough for 145mm, the H7 Plus would be good for handling a more powerful cpu upgrade in the future: https://www.pricerunner.dk/pl/184-4873194/Computer-koeling/Cryorig-H7-Plus-Sammenlign-Priser
