Looking to Get a Good Air Cooler

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

 I had a Noctua NH-U12S that was likely defective as I could not get the mounting screws to thread properly even though I did use the AM4 mounting hardware and I'm pretty certain I installed all that correctly. I have since returned the Noctua cooler and am looking for a good air cooler since the R5 3600 stock cooler, is well, ...not good and so I was curious as to what air coolers people here could recommend.


Coolers I'm strongly considering:


  • Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4
  • Scythe Fuma 2
  • ARCTIC Freezer 34 Esports Duo


Any other recommendations would be welcome

Scythe Fuma 2

Probably best bang for buck, though can't tell for sure.

... but I'm no expert

any of those coolers are a good, another choice is to go with the nh-d15 but you said that you have had bad experience with noctua. Personally I would go with the Fuma 2 or the Arctic Freezer because they are compact and have really good cooling power

Wher eI live Gelid Phantom costs only 35€

That would be best bang for buck imo.

I think that can only be purchased in Europe

Ich glaube dass man kann diese Heatsink nur in Deutschland oder Europa kaufen 

OK .. did not look at location. I'd go for Fuma 2.
