Building a new system for someone. There will be no overclocking so what is a good cooler for the 2600 that doesnt break the bank?? Cryorig H7 and Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo get a lot of mentions on the internet but they both need upgraded mounting kits to be AM4 compatible.

AIO's are strictly out of the question.

Thanks

I thought the H7's were shipping with AM4 brackets and had been for a while. I know when Ryzen launched they weren't. Pretty sure the quad lumi has it, anyway.

I guess it depends on how you're running it. The 2600 runs pretty cool at stock, or even with a modest overclock. But if you plan to OC to 4ghz+ you may need something a little bigger. IME, anyway. Depending on your tastes, a Scythe Mugen 5 rev b will serve you pretty well. I personally think the pictures don't really do it justice, and it does include an AM4 bracket. If you like the Cryorig H7, the H5 Ultimate isn't a bad choice either, though it's a costlier one, and yeah... the bracket isn't included.

212 evo had no trouble cooling one of my 1800x, running WCG @ 4.0ghz 1.4v for over a year. :) You could push a hex core hard and not have any issues.

Scythe Fuma Rev. B claims to fit AM4 on Newegg's search parameter, looks to have decent performance per price but I have never used it. Its dual tower, 6 heatpipes with two 120mm fans so it probably cools well.

Good performance in this article, which also has other AM4 heatsinks profiled: https://techbuyersguru.com/ryzen-120mm-cpu-cooler-shootout-power-people?page=0
The Performance Winner: This one's easy. By virtue of its flat-out mesmerizing performance, the Scythe Fuma Rev. B runs away from the pack. As we noted above, it in fact beat the Noctua NH-D15 that we previously tested, despite coming in at half the price. This is a serious win-win. But it's not perfect. The Fuma has some pretty bad RAM clearance issues, it's surprisingly hard to install, and didn't look great in our system because we had to lift the fan way above the RAM slots. But in terms of price/performance, oh my goodness, it's in a league of its own!

Runner Up: You may note that the Scythe Mugen 5 Rev. B ended up with an identical score to the Fuma, but it couldn't be a more different cooler. We actually asked Scythe up front why it offered two 120mm coolers at the same pricepoint, and we got what turned out to be a very accurate answer: the Fuma is designed for flat-out performance, and the Mugen is designed for compatibility, ease of use, and quiet operation. If you're more interested in a positive user experience than pushing your system to the max, we actually recommend the Mugen over the Fuma, especially considering that it comes with the wonderful new Kaze Flex fan. We should note that the Noctua NH-U12S actually bested the Mugen in just about every regard, with one glaring exception: price. It's just too expensive for a 120mm cooler, and we've told Noctua as much. At $60, you should be looking at a 140mm model, for example the Noctua NH-U14S, our favorite cooler ever released.

They do a new version all black with a red fan ,looks nice, and I agree they work well, especially for the price of them ,you have to go much more expensive to beat it too.

K bit late sorry.
