Low budget cpu cooler for ryzen 5 1600 3.8-3.9ghz

I want a better cpu cooler than the amd ryzen wrait stealth, since im gonna oc the ryzen 5 1600 im getting tomorrow to 3.8-3.9ghz.

Atm i have one that is not possible to use with an amd ryzen and i do wanna oc it when i get it, so the stock 65 watt cpu cooler is not good enought.

Im gonna buy a better cpu cooler than the "low" budget later when i have the money for at good one, if i need a better one, i just want a cpu cooler that is better than the wrait stealh that can handle 3.8-3.9ghz without much noise

My budget is no more that 30€ or 36$

  1. I doubt even a Hyper 212 EVO can handle that level of overclocking, and I also doubt that you'll be able to achieve reasonable temps with air coolers at that overclock.

    Your only solution to overclocking that far is water cooling, none of which are $36.

    Hyper 212 EVO is good, but there's no way you're going to overclock that far on air. You're going to have to bump that overclock down till you can get water cooling.

  2. In addition to what @JalYt_Justin said, I would shy away from any coolers that don't cool the VRs.
    Voltage regulators on your motherboard need some loving too!

  3. The Ryzen 5 1600 doesn't come with the 65 watt Stealth cooler, it comes with the 95 watt Spire cooler. You might want to see how far you can get with the stock cooler first.

  4. The wraith spire cooler is a pretty good cooler for a stock. You are not going to get better performance from any budget cooler.

  5. For example, this guy got 3.85 GHz on his Ryzen stock cooler, and only about 100 MHz more on a $100+ water cooler...

    You might be able to edge a few percent more performance out of a decent aftermarket cooler, but the stock cooler should get you most of the way there. A large tower cooler might also be a bit quieter when overclocked, but again, you might want to see if the sound produced the stock cooler is acceptable first.

    As for decent coolers in that price range, the CRYORIG H7 is supposed to be pretty good, and looks rather nice. I don't believe it ships with an AM4 mounting bracket yet though, so you might have to get one from the manufacturer.

    i have heard many use different kinds of i7's with the 212 evo/x with no problems

    Just watch this video how the 212 performs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNjkDoYZYjU&t=312s

    There is a lot more than just the cooler that goes into overclocking. The motherboard and silicon lottery are big factors. I would not get a 212 over the wraith spire. You are not going to see any noticeable difference.

  9. Than why this huge difference in the video?

    I will of course oc as much as i can according to temps and how much is possible with the chip (silicone lottery), i do how ever think above 3.5ghz is possible.

    Don't know what will give me most performance, can i set ghz to the same on all cores or is max ghz with amds "turbo" so max might be 3.8ghz and it boost to 4.0 or 4.1 ghz on 1-3 cores? or is it the same on all core with no boost on 1-3 cores?

  10. What about the 212 turbo?

    The huge difference in the video is that you wont have the same chip (silicon lottery) and you wont have the same hardware.

    My suggestion is set it up with the wraith spire and see how it does. If you are happy with the OC and the temps then keep it. If you want more then go with an after market solution. Personally I like the deepcool gammaxx more than the 212, but that is just me.

  13. So in turns of speed, temps and vcore what am i gonna expect?

    I would be disappointed if i can't reach 3.5 ghz, i know msi has cpu pll oc voltage that has reduced my temps by around 10 c going from aut to 1.100 volt and than 1.090 volt, so im guessing max 70c wouldn't be unrealistic, know max vcore is 1.420 or 1.425volt (not shure what amd say) and 95c (to much for my taste i would like to stay under 70c and in the summer when it's hottest under 80c doping a stress test)

  14. No one can tell you what temps you are going to get because there are too many variables. Some chips will require a higher v-core for stable clocks, this will have a dramatic influence on temps. Ambient temperature and air flow in the case will impact temps. The GPU temp and how it is cooled will impact temps.

    I would be disappointed too if you could not reach 3.5ghz with full load temps under 80C with reasonable ambient temperature. I think you will get closer to 3.7 under load and keep your temps under 80C.

  15. I can get CPUID HWMonitor to show the right temperature but not in my taskbar, core temps doesn't work with ryzen, is it somehow possible to se temps in the taskbar

  16. How do i best set ram speed as high as possible without chrashing so i have to reset bios,clear cmos?

    update newest core temps did it

  17. Cooler master hyper 212 led turbo, it actually very good a short run of prime 95 small fft 58c and it's not noisy
