  1. Yup you can overclock with that cooler however there's no telling the exact speed you'll get as chips can differ on overclocking capability. Just make sure your motherboard is a B350 or X370 so you can overclock.

    I think 4ghz is achievable with that cooler. As far as if there's a better cooler around that price I would look at Noctua however they're ugly as sin IMHO if aesthetics matters to you.

    I think the max overclock for most of the Ryzen 5/7 CPU's is 4.0-4.1ghz.
