AMD's Stock Coolers for Ry5 and Ry7?

Is the wraith spire an efficient cooler for Ryzen 5 and should i buy liquid cooler for Ryzen 7 which comes with Wraith Spire RGB with a decent heatsink. Going for liquid cooler would increase the budget. Stuck...

You can start with the stock cooler. 

They'll keep the cpu below but will be a bit noisier compared to other stock coolers. Will also have less room for overclocking, you can do some, but not recommended for pushing overclocking limits.

 

You can always buy liquid cooling later or a better stock cooler, if you find it too unpleasant, so I'd say save your money.

I'd say the wraith spire does well when you run 65w tdp ryzens at stock. Almost no headroom for overclocking. But if you're not interested in that its perfectly fine. Just make sure to have proper airflow.

The Spire is fine if you want to run it at stock, but it's not quiet by any means. Liquid cooling is not necessary to keep noise and temps down though. For a 65W CPU you can easily get away with something like a Noctua NH-U12S Redux for about 50$ (or the Arctic Freezer 34 eSports if you're more on a budget) and have the same low noise and low temps as a liquid cooler.

The choice isn't stock or liquid. There's a whole market of air coolers out there that are still budget friendly, better than stock, and in many cases, actually better than liquid, at least for smaller rad sizes.

 

It depends on the particular chip, but there's a reason why AMD doesn't even bother including stock coolers with its higher end chips. A stock cooler of any kind, for AMD or Intel, is always virtually a throwaway. It's good enough so that you can use the CPU out of the box without having to buy anything else, but it's basically just good enough to keep the chip from thermal throttling. Temps aren't going to be great and noise will be a problem.

But it will be okay if we don't overclock it right?
