No they're not as good as higher end models but for unde $30, you can't beat em.
They aren't under $30.

If ryzen 3000 is what i expect it to be, coolers like 212 will regain a lot of relevance back again.

I doubt many will rush to buy a 212 to replace the Wraith cooler...unless they don't have coolers this time?
Even if they don't I'm not sure why you'd want a 212 over a Cryorig H7 or True Spirit 140 Direct and the more expensive but D14 equivalent True Spirit 140 Power
