I liked the cooler that came with the Ryzen 7 1700 better than the one with the new Ryzen 7 3800X. I already knew about the stock paste sticking like glue and the amount yikes! The horror stores told...
I cleaned that stuff off right away and put some MX-4 on it instead!
Though I only had it on the 2days before I rebuilt my water cooling for it I found the amount of noise it make annoying. The older screw it in place version for the 1700 was so much more silent at all times I found, it's dead silent in comparison.
The fin-base of the new is the same they have been using for ages. I can fetch almost the same cooler for my 939/AM2+ CPU:s but with a 70mm fan instead. The bigger fan wasn't that much better, though the light show was mesmerizing to watch.
