Hi,
I upgraded my intel sytem to Ryzen 5 3600 (so, lucky me!) with MSI B450 Gaming Plus Max motherboard and ADATA XPG Spectre D41 RAM (8GB X2). But I didn't buy any CPU cooler as I heard that the stock coolers comes with Ryzen are good for the job. But unfortunately I am getting over 90°C @ 3.8Ghz with 1.3V under full load.
Though I am not getting any thermal throttling, but I am not sure if that kind of temp is good for the CPU's life span.

So it would be great if you help me to choose the right AIO cooler for it. I am choosing AIO because of not only aesthetic purposes but also for RAM clearance.

FYI:
  1. Ryzen 5 3600 has default TDP of 65W .
  2. My case can support 120mm or 140mm and 240mm or 280mm radiators.
  3. Money is problem for me so budget option is more preferable.


Here are some products that I listed along with their price

120mm Radiator:

  1. Corsair H60 (2018) @ ₹5,299
  2. Nzxt KRAKEN M22 RGB @ ₹5,999
  3. Deepcool GamerStorm Captain 120 EX RGB @ ₹6,499
  4. Corsair H80i V2 @ ₹7,799


240mm Radiator:
  1. Deepcool Gammax L240 V2 @ ₹6,300
  2. Cooler Master MASTERLIQUID ML240L RGB @ ₹7,499
  3. SilverStone PF240-ARGB @ ₹7,669
  4. DEEPCOOL Castle 240 RGB @ ₹8,500
  5. Cooler Master MASTERLIQUID ML240R RGB @ ₹8,665
  6. Corsair H100i PRO @ ₹8,990


    (From the list above, Deepcool Gammax L240 V2 is my 1st choice and Nzxt KRAKEN M22 RGB is 2nd.. But I didn't get much reviews on those on R5 3600)

Thank You.

Improper cooler mount? When you first installed the stock cooler, did you secure the screws a little at a time in a 'X' formation?

What's the temps of your room like?
What is your current case?
Airflow setup? Traditionally, it's front to back, bottom to top.

yes, I used the x pattern mounting.
I use Corsair Carbide 500R .. and airflow isn't the problem (2+2 120mm intake and 3 120mm exhaust)..

I was planning to replace the stock cooler anyway by next summer (it is ugly for me) but judging by the current temp reading, I may need to do that asap.

Then you must live in a warm climate; it's not unusual for the cpu to be idling at something like 45C, I presume?

Also, the fans are blowing air in, air out - some people actually make this mistake when installing fans.


For warmer climates, liquid may work out better, but cheap + liquid cooling doesn't pair together well.
From your given options:
-Cooler Master MASTERLIQUID ML240R RGB @ ₹8,665
-Corsair H100i PRO @ ₹8,990
Those 2 are easily your strongest options.

Idle temps are fine (about 45C) when ambient is about 28-30C .
are there any aircooler from coolermaster or deepcool you can recommend?
