Wraith Prism or Hyper 212 Evo for a ryzen 3900x.

Snagged myself the deal of a century and got a 3900x to replace my 2600. £250 new and sealed ooo yeah.

 

Question is, is the Wraith Prism cooler it comes with better than the cheap hyper 212 evo i have now?

 

Thanks in advance you sexy people.

Both performance are the same. Get something like NH D15, Dark Rock Pro 4 or 280mm aio.

Hyper 212 is cooler and quieter.

Generally the AMD stock coolers are enought if you dont want to OC.

But try the Stock cooler first and then decide if you want a better one.

The 212 might perform slightly better, but not too groundbreaking of a difference. If you have it already you might as well use it, unless you're a fan of the whole RGB thang of the Prism cooler.

the case i'm using is space contrained and the 212 fits with about 2mm clearance of the side panel and it was only £20 at-least i can flip the wraith and get some cash back.
