Specs: Windows 7 Pro
I will buy a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU.
I've read many people saying the stock cooler is not good. I want to get an air cooler.
The place I will buy the CPU from has only the following cooler brands:
Alpenfohn, Asus, Corsair, Fazn, NZXT

Has anybody tried one of those brands on a Ryzen 5 3600 for AIR cooling?
If yes, what was the exact model and what were the results (temperatures, noise)?

Thanks

"No oc, no games, but I have made my decision to get a better cooler."

to do what? make it run at a lower temp? the stock cooler can handle the stock cpu. they are desigened to work well together.

i see no point in wasting money on numbers going down a bit...

"I have seen people calling the stock cooler "garbage"."

reviewers/enthusiast who OC the thing to the max? yes is would be garbage if you try to go for a4.4~4.45GHz OC, because it will be pulling like 140+ watt maby even 180 towards the 1.45 volt.

perhaps noise?, get some noctua or be-quiet cooler then.

Add Arctic to the brands I mentioned.

The stock unit for that CPU is the AMD Wraith Stealth. I suggest you try it. You can always swap it out later if you're not happy with it. Make sure your case cooling is properly configured; you can't cool a CPU very well using hot air.

I want a better cooler. I just need information from somebody who has experience with Ryzen 5 3600 + air cooling with Alpenfohn or Arctic.

why not just buy the R5 3600X then, youll get a better cooler + slightly higher boost clocks(+100~150MHz) out of the box, the chip auto OC's to the max anyways...

or got with the R5 3600 + stock cooler, and you miss out on ~3% extra performance but save 40$?

I don't want to risk high temps with 3600. I must get a better cooler. I have seen people calling the stock cooler "garbage".
3600x has a better cooler but is also hotter (95W vs 65W), right?

If you have no intentions of overclocking, there's probably little reason to upgrade from the stock cooler. If you insist on getting an aftermarket cooler, see if you can find a tray CPU without the stock cooler; that way you should be able to save a few bucks. Part number is 100-000000031.

You haven't said how much you're willing to spend on a cooler. You also need to check to see how tall the heatsink can be & still fit inside the case. The Arctic Freezer 34 Esports Duo gets decent reviews & it's not too expensive. Have a look at this: https://www.tomshardware.com/review...

New data: Unfortunately, the place I will buy the parts from cannot bring Arctic coolers and I will have to get a cooler elsewhere. So, I am not restricted to specific brands.

Has anybody tried R5 3600 with an air cooler they can suggest?
