Best CPU Coolers for AMD Ryzen 5 3600X Windows Central 2020
The AMD Ryzen 5 3600X is a powerful processor, rocking six cores and 12 threads, making it perfect for a mid-tier PC for work and 1440p gaming, when partnered with a capable GPU. To get the most out of this CPU, you’ll need an adequate cooler. Here are some excellent examples.
If we’re to make a suggestion
AMD packages a decent cooler with the Ryzen 5 3600X, so if you don’t want to spend any more money, it’s possible to use the bundled cooler, and you’re good to go. But if you want something a little quieter or one that will work better when overclocking the CPU, you’ll want to look at one of our suggestions.
To see what the Ryzen 5 3600X can really do, pair it with the NZXT Kraken Z63, which rocks a 280mm radiator, the latest Asetek pump, and LCD display for a unique-looking build. It’s a little pricey, but well worth it if your budget can stretch.
The Shadow Rock 3 from be quiet! is a rock-solid air cooler with an even better price tag. Don’t let this affordability fool you into thinking it’s not up to the job of taking on the Ryzen 9 3900X, because it is.
