General Ryzen HSF
Didn't find anything after a few searches so.... I have a Ryzen 2600 and need a better, aftermarket HSF b/c I want more quiet. But will also use this on other systems in the future. So kinda investing. Looking for something that isn't for high OC's. Prefer squat, like 155mm tall?, preferably not real heavy so maybe 550 - 650 g? Can switch out fan(s), don't care about RGB & I'm thinking 150W or so would do. But those aren't must haves. Oh, prefer 4 or 5 pipes. Sticking w/air.
So far easiest AM4 mounting seems to favor Scythe and Arctic. Any other brands that are easy for Ryzen? Caveat: I've never dealt w/a tower before. Will be switching cases therefore complex = not good. Has to be able to mount east-west so Pure Rock slim and CM hyper 212 are out. If we're getting up around $55+ I'd rather wait for deals to pop up.
AFAIK the other be quiets can orient the normal way.
A few I've researched include:
Gammaxx 400 - pros and cons, great value but can these handle a good OC on an 8 core?
Arctic Freezer 33 / 34 eSports (skip the duos). For these I've read great reviews as well as a vy negative review (hardforum) saying junk & responses kept wondering if they had a dud. What's the consensus?
be quiet Pure Rock - ?
Reeven Hans - some reviews say beats a Cryorig H7, others not impressed with it. Today at $29 off amazon (using Prime) but may be underwhelming on more powerful chips.
CM Hyper T4??
Out of all of these some supposed to out-class a Cryorig H5. An H7 is getting heavy but I'm not looking to invest that much, and the big be quiets are also pricey. Kinda stuck.
Basically I'm thinking people here would know the wheat from the chafe.
Thanks in advance for any input,
