Thinking about switchin from liquid CPU cooling to air. what should i choose?

So, i've been thinking about switching over to an air cooler. Currently i have the Coolermaster Master Liquid pro 140, and it's started making funny noises, and i think it's abit too loud.

Currently i have
CPU: Ryzen 1700x
MOBO: Asrock Taichi x370
GPU: Strix 1070

I have not overclocked my cpu, and am not planing on doing it. I've read that the Noctua NH-D15 is really good, but might be a overkill, and abit heavy, since the PCB from Asrock tend to be on the thinner side.

Do you have any suggestions for the best cooling/most silent air cooler that would be out there for me?

  2. Noctua NH-D15 is vary good cooler, it is a bit heavy but as long as you have all the screws into the stand offs you should be fine. It would also allow for some overclocking and the way AMD Ryzen works, the cooler they are the higher they boost. The D15 will be much better than that 140mm cooler.
