The DRP4 and the D15 are both good coolers. I’m assuming your cooling a 10700 on your past posts.

 

The d15 is your best option imo

Depending on what you're cooling with it, you might not see any difference in temps.  For example, the difference I saw between my Hyper 212 and Noctua NH-D14 on my Ryzen 3600 was negligible.  The CPU just doesn't produce enough heat to notice a difference despite the NH-D14 being objectively superior.  I know you said in terms of "thermals and noise level," but if you're not pushing the cooler to it's limit, looks and ram clearance could also be considerations.

The Assassin III performs the best followed by the NH-D15 and then the DRP4.

If you're aiming for low noise, the list is reversed. 

What are you cooling?
