AMD Ryzen 5 & 7 CPU Cooler Round Up



How much do you need to cool your new Ryzen 1500, 1600x or 1800x? Will your cooler stand up well to overclocking?

Such a shame for a low temp limit. This kinda hurts the argument that AMD platform is cheaper right now since you need to invest into a strong cooler to maintain the OCs most people aim for

But at the same time how many people overclock on X99 without a large cooler.

I do agree with you, raising the thermal limit with Ryzen 2 would be fantastic, as it could allow even basic air cooling to handle higher overclocks/voltages. If it were 80 Degrees I think even the Cryorig H7 would have passed OC testing on the 8-core.

Thanks for all the work Tom and your helping hands, Was interesting how little difference between the 12v and 7v think I'd go for a little warmer quieter system.

Tbh I'd think if your looking at overclocking either Intel or AMD you'd most lightly look at an AIO

I use the $25 Hyper T4 to cooler my R7 1700 at 3800-3900mhz @ 1.4V and it seems to work just fine, granted I've upgraded the fan to a 140mm High Pressure Venturi fan, but it's probably not too much better than the stock fan. fan ran at 100% RPM, controled by a Sentry Mix 2 fan controller, super handy to have btw

Rarely breaks 60C running in a hot shed.

I would highly recommend a deepcool gammax 400 instead though, as it has cut outs to fit RAM, i wouldn't be able to put RAM into the 1st slot if I needed to upgrade to 32GBs, since I can't turn the heatsink on AM4 anyways.

most enthusiasts would, but not everyone will. Especially those people buying the 1600/x CPUs. Either way, spending all that money on a cooler hurts the "cheaper" argument people, including me, would use. It'll still end up cheaper of course than an intel system, but still more money is still more money.

You can't really use that argument though NBD as most people now are going for AIO it's only the real budget conscious that use air now and as Tom proved you can use a cheaper AIO and still get decent results
And besides people are putting AIO on their Intel systems too so all the pricing is relative so AMD is still cheaper

You missed my point, it is still expensive compared to just an air cooler. So yes AMD is less expensive when both are using AIOs, but the issue is it still is more money when including it. Cheaper yes, but at a higher price point.
I doubt most people use AIOs now, Air Cooling is still cheaper. If the Ryzen limit was higher, Air Cooling would be an even better choice to the majority of people who want a Ryzen system as I suspect most are on a budget. The people who are buying Ryzen 7, are more likely to get an AIO, but the budget gamer going for the Ryzen 5 chips are less likely to do so.

You may be right but I just had a look here and prices on a fair whack of the AIO's you can buy aren't much more or are in some cases cheaper than some of the upper end air coolers from Noctua and Coolermater and even Cryorig so unless you want a cheapy air cooler then you aren't really saving much if anything and I personally wouldn't recommend to anyone to buy a cheap cooler unless their budget really couldn't stretch that far for something better as let face it cooler temps = longer life generally speaking, although yes you can argue that is subjective too

Again, if someone is on a budget, I doubt they would be a buying either a top end Air Cooler or a low-end AIO. They'd probably stick around the Cryorig H7 or Hyper 212 range. Which in the US is about $30-$50 after taxes. That range is quite a bit less than $80(should be higher, but benefit of the doubt and all)-$165 after taxes. Very large difference.

And since they are sticking to a cheaper option, the limited Ryzen range is sort of a kick in the butt. Now OCCT is going to get higher temps than any game and probably most software(editing, etc), but I am just saying it would be nice for a slightly extended increase in temp limit
