Air Cooler recommendations

This weekend, I switched over to a Ryzen 2600. Today, my AM4 bracket for my Corsair H110 arrived. Today, I installed said bracket and H110 onto my Ryzen 2600.

Then, a funny little noise started happening inside the pump assembly while stress testing it... sort of like random tapping (boiling?). However, it only occurs when running the pump at full speed (1500 RPM) and stress testing the CPU for a long period of time.

Now I am concerned that the pump on my H110 is going out. The only other thing I can think of is maybe I the AS5 I applied is either too old or wasn't put on right, so it's doing something weird between the cold plate and the CPU... only it doesn't happen when the pump runs @ 1200 RPM... *sigh*


So I'm left with 2 options:

1. Try and figure it out and PRAY the pump doesn't die and cause liquid to leak into my system.
2. Abandon the H110 and get an air cooler.



TL;DR

I need recommendations for an air cooler, one that I can potentially use on a new, higher end Ryzen 2 when its released.

Budget? $100 or less. I'm not picky. RAM is low profile-ish (Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000Mhz). All 4 RAM slots are filled.

Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk

Recommendations?

Nope. Just a plain old Corsair H110. No i. No GT. It's old, and I'm amazed it has lasted this long.

Newegg says I ordered it on 11/29/2013.

5 year warranty, so I'm about 5 months out of warranty.

Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT! I still have mine sitting in the closet for when the pump inevitably dies on my H115i Pro. It's a really good cooler and doesn't block any RAM slots, it's about on par with the NH-D14/D15 and a bit quieter. Last I checked it's $10-$20 cheaper too.

Big fan here of the macho, but why do u guys recommend it for ryzen? I know it works just fine, but it has a convex coldplate and the IHS on ryzen is straight flat, which to my eyes means, you either get crappy performance **for a LGM RT**, either get close to breaking the socket tightening the cooler to make full contact.

Am i missing something here?

If your cooler is so convex that it breaks your socket then you have a faulty heatsink.

I said it's fine, but it doesn't perform like on a Intel CPU.

Gonna post any links to back up what you're saying? Just sounds like nonsense to me. Can't find a single complaint about the Grand Macho on Ryzen on Google.

Oh yes, proofs everywhere. Need to back up my claims.

It's a CONVEX coldplate you jambo!!!, on a flat IHS. You don't need anymore proof than that. And yes i've red a lot of ppl about it, that while they didn't have bad results with the cooler, they expected more.
There was some guy on reddit, that added an extra layer of material between the back of the motherboard and the plate that goes at the back of the motherboard and that after making use 2 times of the warranty, cus the guy thought that they are defective having the coldplate not flat. He was getting similar results to his old much smaller u12s, and after he did the mod and tighten the hell out of the screws, he got 5-6 improvements.
