New CPU, use old cooler?

Go to solution Solved by Jeppes,

Itll make a difference if compared to the stock cooler. And 5600X is about 100-105W when oc'd to max with safe voltage and under 70W stock. So 212 should be a nice fit if you have am4 mounting kit.

 

If not something like id-cooling se-224-xt basic is a nice and cheap option. Scythe Fuma 2 for 60$ is also a nice option if you need a more premium cooler.

I got a 5600x a few days ago, and I was wondering. Instead of using the stock cooler, if I should switch over to  the cooler I used with my intel build. It was the Hyper 212 EVO. And I was just pondering if it would be worth my time to swap out the stock ryzen cooler with said Hyper 212 EVO. Or if I should just buy a new cooler all together.

Does the Hyper 212 have the correct mounting hardware for the Ryzen CPU?

 

Even if it does, it probably won't make a big difference compared with the stock cooler.

I'm pretty sure, yeah. It does have the correct mounting hardware. But if it wont make much of a difference I might buy a watercooled AIO. So I dont have to worry about overheating.. Thing, is I dont want to spent over 90 dollars on one. These two are the best AIO's i've found but I dont know if they live up to their name and give great cooling:

If you aren't overclocking, you don't have to worry about overheating at all with the stock cooler. Your Hyper 212 will do a good job, too. If you want to get something new anyway, then any of these are worth considering:

You can always go with a NH-D15S. It performs similarly to the NH-D15, besides one less fan which is marginal in terms of cooling.  I personally would rather go with an air cooler over AIOs due to the risks involved with AIOS: leaks, pump failure, no flow due to air bubble trapped in CPU block etc.

You dont have to worry about overheating using the stock cooler either. Its crazy that people have gotten scared into looking same coolers for 10900K oc'd to over 300W:s and a under 110W cpu.

Yeah i just swapped the stock cooler out with the 212 EVO, and boy let me tell you.. 25-30 degrees idle. havent tested under load. But the hyper 212 evo droppd the temperatures by 25 degrees. Thanks
