Prism Wraith Cooler for 5800X/5700G?

I do not overclock, and having to invest in another cooler is a hassle. Will the Prism Wraith cooler suffice for a 5800X or a 5700G for big loads?

 

I already have an 3700X. I love my current CPU with a passion, and have no plans to upgrade. Just asking out of curiosity.

 

My rig was an Intel one before I switched to AMD. It was an i7-9700K, and I used an AIO because it can get really hot for some games. It's a lot of work having to dismantle and assemble for maintenance, and I don't feel like spending extra on an air cooler at the moment.

Depends on your case, room temp, etc. But generally it will get to the upper end of the temp spectrum. Expect 80-90°C under longer heavy loads. But as long as that's fine with you, it should be enough. (5800X)

 

The 5700G should be lower powered afaik.

the 5800x doesn't come with a stock cooler. so unless you have a wraith prism already, i don't see the point in buying a wraith prism when for $10 more you can get an actually adequate cooler.

Seeing as the OP stated "investing in another cooler is a hassle", OP likely already has the prism. Otherwise i'd agree.

I already have an 3700X.

not sure whether an upgrade from 3700x to 5800x is worth it, though.

What GPU do you have,  and is there a reason you want to upgrade the CPU, seems not a great idea generally for a few % better performance while getting much higher temps? 

I'm actually one of those people who thinks that anonymity is overrated. Some people confuse privacy and anonymity and think they go hand in hand, and that protecting privacy means that you need to protect anonymity. I think that's wrong. Anonymity is important if you're a whistle-blower, but if you cannot prove your identity, your crazy rant on some social-media platform shouldn't be visible, and you shouldn't be able to share it or like it.

RTX2070 Super. And yes you are right, it's not worth the upgrade.  I really love my current CPU, I don't see a reason to change. I'm just asking out of curiosity. My temps are around 50, but so far didn't reach 90C.

 

I had an Intel i7-9700K before I switched to Ryzen, and I used AIO because of its tendency to get hot at times. It's actually a lot of work assembling and dismantling the AIO, and I'm not really up to spending some money on another air cooler.

No I'm not upgrading it.
