Cooler for 3700x/pbo and future 3950x
I'm looking to buy a better cooler for my 3700x (with pbo enabled at 130/80/95 now) i'm hitting 85°C on synthetic tests and while doing raw->jpg photo conversions which is my main use.
With pbo at max settings i'm looking at higher temps but with no increase in performance due to thermal constraints.
Without PBO i'm at about 75°C max, but with lower all core speeds (noticeable in higher export time when doing 1000+ pictures).
I'm not looking for a cooler that has a little better thermal performance.
The idea is to buy a cooler that has headroom for a future 3950x.
If i have to set 2 price points: USD50 and USD90, what would you get?
I looked around and the Fuma 2 is on stock at USD60 and seems to be a good and quiet cpu cooler.
Or maybe there is another cooler with bigger fans and lower noise and better cooling capacity?
Also.. i know some coolers are concave and others convex and i'm afraid to get a cooler that does not have very good contact with the cpu.
