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.
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.
