Hello. Help me please with best air cooler for current stocks and time with Ryzen 3700x build, and future upgrades:

1. Not for overclock.

2. Highest performance is for Rendering time to time but sometimes for 12-20 hrs.

3. Case Be Quiet pure base 500 DX. So i limit to 180-190 mm

4. Mobo MSI Meg x570 Unify

 

Scythe Fuma 2 N/A at current time and i dont sure about it for 3900x and newer CPU's

i think if Fuma 2 really BIS and i just need to wait while them refill worldwide stock. Suppose i need cheap cooler so i can  use it for one two month till i buy Fuma 2.
NH-U12S chromax.black came next. i really love how it look and want it even if must put second Noctua fan. But i dont sure if it safe to use for renderings for a day or two long.

NH-D15 chromax.black, i know its beast. But it really worth it? i dont overclock. But in this case i limited to low profile memory?

Be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 Really dont sure. Air this size? seems NH-D15 much better.

Macho Rev.B (MACHO-B) dont lilke i at all.
Mugen 5 Rev B Same

Arctic Freezer 34 DUO mixed reviews. so i dont sure about at all.

 

Regards

The U12S would be enough for either of those chips even with PBO enabled, but if you can afford the higher-end ones then both the D15 and DRP4 will be great choices.

Price considered the DRP4 is usually a better buy over the NH-D15, but there are other great cheaper options that will work great for cooling a R7 3700x or R9 3900x. 

 

For the 3700x the Arctic 34 eSports DUO would be perfect. But I think the best buy for the performance right now (assuming USD) would be the Deepcool NEPTWIN V2.0.

Any of the mentioned coolers would be fine but better cooling can allow for better performance in which the best of the list would be the NH-D15.

Why don't you like the Macho Rev. B and Mugen 5 Rev. B?

Where are you shopping / located?

i think i dont like Macho Rev. B mostly for design. 

Shopping Russia: Scythe Mugen 5 Black RGB (SCMG-5100BK) ~67.5 Euro

Computeruniverse: Have only Scythe Mugen 5 Black RGB (SCMG-5100BK) and Scythe Mugen 5 ARGB Plus for 52 and 73 Euro + 12/29 Shipping
and both of them not Mugen 5 Rev. B? right?

 

inclined to D15/DRP (20$ difference) for performance in long term relationships, but still think what i really lose if i go with U12S with dual fan setup? i mean its almost U12A?
BTW: a move from city to city once for 1-3 years. So also think about overall weigh time to time :)

The RGB / ARGB variants are similar and based on the same design as the Mugen 5 Rev. B but the fans aren't as quiet. If you like the looks, it's hard to go wrong with. 

The NH-U12S with an additional fan isn't as good as the NH-U12A. It's fine without an additional fan.
