I have a Scythe Ninja 5 ($60) on my 3700x (PBO enabled) and it idles at 30-32c and maxes out around 60c after hours of gaming.
It also maxes out at around 70c when stress testing.

I also have an Arctic 33 eSports Edition (dual fan) cooler ($40) on my 2600 that I OC to 4 GHZ and it idles at 29-30c and also maxes out around 60c when gaming.
I had the Arctic 33 on my 3700x (PBO Enabled) for a few weeks and it was only a few degrees higher at idle (32-34c) and got up to 62-63c when gaming.
It did get up to 80c when stress testing though.

Spike as in the peak reading and sorry to say even if it says its not going to throttle the clocks still drop and wont remain at there maximum. These temp spikes also on cheaper coolers tends to cause the RPM to ramp up.

Also keep in mind i basically test in a perfect / temperature controlled environment at 21 to 22c. So if the OP ever experiences higher Ambients or has a case with less than stellar airflow that means increased Ambient temps which in turn means even higher temps as well. Thus when i peaked at 80C depending on case you might see temps as high as 85 or even 90C.

The OP can do as they wish but looking at current CPUs / transistor density etc while temps are still easily controllable spiking temps are more common. Example AMD stock cooler, under static load it reached 80c range in Cinebench averaged out across the test and if you remove the first 10-20 seconds. in that first 10-20 seconds the CPU spiked into the 90+C range.

As for the Deepcool vs the Scythe, i have no issues with Deepcool but Scythe has the far better build quality and is offset for improved memory compatibility where as looking at the Deepcool it will likely overhang the DIMM slots limiting the OP to standard height memory only. There is also the fact that the Neptwin V2 is still based on the 2012 design which was entry level back then. Its not a bad cooler I just dont think its really worth it today.

But if the OP just wants a cheap cooler why not ask? not like I dont have a shelf full of the damn things collecting dust.
Ok I understand your points. Seems they basically support what I was trying to relay on my first post to the thread.
Everything youve mentioned still puts the processor with in running temp specifications as long as we are under 95c

Cpu High Temp alert is actually 70c, the point stock setups will ramp fan rpm to max.

So really any cooler the can displace stock btu or more will be ok, but as you mentioned design choice covering memory slots ect does matter. Gotcha.

Build quality does matter for sure. You make excellent points. Thank you.

Raise your spending limit to the $50 range and look into brands like Scythe. They are nearly as silent and can deliver top-tier Noctua performance with half to a third of the cost. There are a few others out there too, but Scythe has been making a rush to affordable coolers that tend to kick ass.
Mine is a great example, its a thinner cooler but keeps this cpu at 55 gaming. 75 under a ryzen blender test (completes it without freezing up)

That cpu isn't easy to cool either ;)

Makes little sense to overclock a r5 3600. There is very little benefit going to 4.2-4.3Ghz.

A value for money but effective upgrade from the wraith stealth cooler would be a tower cooler with at least 4 heatpipes, e.g. CM Hyper 212

I'm using one and the temps never go above 70C in a very hot and humid climate

I'm having similar doubts, using the stock wraith prism on my 3700X, it's barely adequate (42ºC idle, and it's cold here) and between noticeable to unpleasant in regards of noise. Using headphones is not a solution, I prefer to use speakers when gaming or editing sound and video.
Load temps are OK (70-ish at full load like cinebench or video production) if you can accept the vaccum-cleaner like noise. The noise pitch is not annoying, just the sound level.
I'm not interested in overclocking, new chips auto-overclock themselves enough to be worth it.
Also not interested in watercoolng when $60-$100 air coolers outperform many 240mm AIOs that cost twice as much.
And I don't care if my CPU boosts to 4.375 instead of 4.4 GHz. The difference is only discernible if benchmarking, but not in real world usage.

After asking here in the forums, I chose one of this 3:
  • Scythe Ninja 5 (expensive, super silent, big and heavy);
  • Scythe Fuma 2 (almost as good as the Ninja, but a bit better performer at the expense of noise, much cheaper);
  • Noctua NH-U12S (good performer, realtively good price compared to other Noctua coolers);
  • As last resort, Arctic 34 Esports (this one is a bit controversial, some revirews say it's not good at all, others say it's the best you can get in its price range.) My old Arctic i30 was same price as the Hyper 212 and outperformed it both in noise and cooling).
Sadly, the importer for Scythe in my country (Portugal, and probably in Spain because in can't find Scythe coolers from spanish e-tailers) closed doors. As you see, not all coolers are available here, in a small peripheric country.

Edit: amazon.es has the Fuma 2 listed, with delivery between 1 and 3 months ... but the Mugen 5 Rev B is in stock listed at €66. Then again, Noctua NH-U12S SE-AM4 is listed at €58,90.

Second edit: The NH-U12S is readily available in many e-tail and retail shops (even in the small town where I live) at prices between €57+€4 shipping and €66.

Opinions?

Thanks, for me the best advice is from a person that have tried the cooler(s) themselves.
I find the Ninja too heavy (almost 1190g) and big. So I will order my preferences like this:
  1. Scythe Fuma 2
  2. Noctua NH-U12S
  3. Scythe Mugen 5 Rev. B
  4. Arctic Freezer 34 Esports Duo
Once more, thanks for your quick and meaningful reply.

Any of those coolers should work well on your 3700x.

Here is a low budget option. Won't be winning OC races, will allow your 6c CPU to stretch its legs just fine. Very silent, too.


Yes, thats 26 EUR, you saw it right ;) I have a rev 2 of this one on my 3570K and had a nice balance up to about 90W package TDP. Its still on there, never got removed, still doing just fine. Build quality is right up there with the mentioned competitors here for a slim single stack tower.

That is actually a nice heatsink on a performance to price ratio, and the build quality is up there.
  • ● 4 Power Heatpipes with Direct Touch Technology
  • ● Unique Heatsink Shape Design
  • ● Stacked Soldered Heatpipes & Fins
  • ● PWM IC without Clicking Noise
  • ● Double Layer Fan Blade Design
  • ● 5 Years Warranty
Didn't expect the fins soldered to the heatpipes usually there friction fitted on.

They also offer a great fan with it. All my Gelid fans (2 case fans & 1 on this cooler) are still doing fine; 6 years and going now. Heck even the paste they give you is good.

nice cooler but the price almost lets you buy a better tier cpu (3700x) compared to the 3600. Is there really a point in 200mhz overclock with 65$ cooler compared to just buying the 3700x for 100$ more? i just run mine stock with a recycled heatsink from 2700x, i used to care about temps but now i dont care at all! i guess not having a hotspot on your motherboard is the best reason, or silent fans. glad you found a pretty heatsink for your cpu :)

NH-U14S is great, had one myself with a 7600K few years ago.

Well, personally I wouldn't pay that much of an air cooler, but I got mine used with pretty cheap price, so why not. IIRC I even got more when I sold it than what I paid for it.

Also Noctua is great for their customer service, if you have the receipt of their cooler, they send you new installing kit if a new socket is released which is incompatible with your current cooler.

last I checked they were only about $60 in the states.

seem to still be running around that price.

I got two 140mm gelid fans for my previous build,just like the one on the cooler only bigger,and for the dirt cheap price they were surprisingly silent and effective.

nice cooler but the price almost lets you buy a better tier cpu (3700x) compared to the 3600. Is there really a point in 200mhz overclock with 65$ cooler compared to just buying the 3700x for 100$ more? i just run mine stock with a recycled heatsink from 2700x, i used to care about temps but now i dont care at all! i guess not having a hotspot on your motherboard is the best reason, or silent fans. glad you found a pretty heatsink for your cpu :)
The 3700X still comes out more expensive

My 3600 cost me $180 NIB
Cooler cost $50

3700X is currently going for for $329 which is still more expensive.

But this is just a place holder for the Ryzen 4900X
