I'd go with the Hyper 212 or the Pure Rock, out of the choices. Hard pass on the stock cooler.

Imo you should always try the stock cooler first before buying anything else. Maybe it's not too loud for your taste. It's perfectly fine to cool a 3600.

You can still easily switch your cooler without removing anything from your case.

If you think it's too loud, i'd recommend the Pure Rock 2.

It mostly comes down to which fan the heatsink uses. From personal experience I would pick the Hyper 212 Black, alternativly the Pure Rock 2 for lowest noise possible. For a budget option, nothing can really compete with the Hyper 212 EVO, but try the stock cooler first.
