Recommended cooler for Ryzen 7 2700x

Ok thanks for the tips. If I stick with the stock cooler, sound wise, how loud can it get and would it make a big difference if I get the Noctua?

I mean, the stock cooler WILL have noise, but it's not like it's going to too loud. Especially if you use a headset or have audio going on. The only time you'll really notice it is during heavy processing and in a semi-quiet room. Other than that it's nothing to worry about. Plus, since it comes with the processor, you can just stick to the stock cooler and if it bugs you that much then you can buy a different one. 

 

The Notcua is just hands down the quietest out there and offers amazing cooling. So if you see that you don't like the noise levels and temps on the stock then pull the trigger on something like the Dark Rock 4 or the Noctua. 

Hi!

So the title pretty much says it all. I want to build a mid level gaming pc and I'm not sure, firstly, if I should get a cooler and just stick with the stock cooler or buy a cooler. Secondly, should I use a liquid cooler or air cooler I have no idea.

What would be the best thing to do and if I should get a cooler what would be the best cooler (performance) for its price.

 

Thanks in advance

I would get the pro if we're talking about that much money on a cooler

Between both air coolers (dark rock 4 and Noctura U12S SE-AM4) which has the best performance for its price? Would the DR4 be quieter?

An air cooler is more than enough for Ryzen. The stock cooler is enough, even with overclocking. You can even get something on the not-so expensive side such as the Cyroig7, Arctric Freeze, Esports, and so on.

You don't need another cooler than the stock one. Performance won't be any different with the auto-OC features the 400-series chipsets have. Only thing you'd be improving is baseline thermals (a little) and noise.

Noctua is notorious for how quiet it is AND its air cooling performance. Though the Dark Rock isn't as loud, it's get the job done as bout as well as the Noctua. The only downside with Noctua is its stock fan colors. You can opt to purchase some black Silent wing fans later down the line though.

Ok thanks for the tips. If I stick with the stock cooler, sound wise, how loud can it get and would it make a big difference if I get the Noctua?

I say do what I did, try the stock cooler for a bit, and see if that meets you needs, in my case it didn't, but I probs have a different workflow to yourself. 

Try it for a month or two then decide. 

I make intelligent lights do cool things
