    Question Cooler for Ryzen 5 7600x

    There not many options at my location, but I was wondering if the ID SE-226-XT would be fine for the R5 7600x? Other option could be the Be Quiet Shadow Rock 3 or Dark Rock Slim for a few dollars more, but then other cooler are twice as much and not worth the price in my opinion
