Stock cooler for the 5600X is pretty trash, don't use it.

For high-end cooling, there are some good sales on the dark rock pro 4 and other high-end coolers, but you really don't need such a crazy cooler for a 65W CPU.

Something like a Hyper212 will work perfectly fine.

Personally, I'm going to pick up a Wraith Prism from eBay for like $25 because I like the fancy lights and the 5600X really doesn't need too much cooling.

If I'm wrong, please point it out. I'm always learning & I won't bite.
