Ryzen 5 7600X Air Cooler Recommendation(s)

Hi,

I'm in the process of gathering components for my new build, which will be built around the Ryzen 5 7600x. Do you have any good air cooler recommendations for the 7600X? I have a short list of 5 or 6 (Be Quiet! and Noctua) coolers I am considering.

Thanks!

Recently, I had gotten the parts for a build based on the spare 3900X I have lying around after upgrading to a 5900X. I had looked around and found the Thermalright PA 120 SE, it is going for <50USD but has been reviewed highly by THG. But if you're willing and able to pay for a Noctua or Be Quiet!, then by all means, get it.

7600X is not that demanding, but

Noctua  NH-U12 or14
BeQuiet Dark Rock
Deepcool AK620
Scythe Mugen 5 maybe

Just check that whatever you get, actually supports AM5

Noctua D15 is amazing.  Everything they produce is quality.  Highly recommended.

Assassin III keeps my overclocked 5900X (all core avg 4.7 Ghz) at 67 deg C max with a 71 degree hotspot on one or 2 cores when under full load.  CPU is NOT undervolted. These numbers came with several 10 minute runs of Cinebench R23.

Thermal paste is Grizzly Kryonaut.

Fans are quiet. I'm also using Remi Mercier's fan control software which is set to increase case fan speed as the CPU temps ramp to help with additional airflow.

Not going to add much more but Noctua is Noctua. All my fans are Noctua.

Very quiet even at 800rpm and almost inaudible at 400rpm!

Check the video, you will hear the mouse click and the clock ticking but not the fans.


(the video is unrelated of course but its meant to show the fan noise)
(ok this is an AIO but still the fans are there)

Thanks for the help, guys! Still doing a little researching!

Definitely research the Noctua D-15.  It is incredible.


Famous last words of a RedNeck "Hey Ya'll, WATCH THIS"

Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone! I appreciate it. I ended up getting the Noctua NH-U12A chromax.Black air cooler. Still waiting on other components for my build, so I haven't been able to test it out. From what I've read, it should be more than sufficient to keep my 7600X cool.

Thanks again!
