The ones I read reviews and heard good comments will be this:

There are better options (Noctua and be Quiet!) for overclocking, but I don't think you will like to pay much more money than those I linked. And actually, those Arctic ones should be more than enough for an avg oc on a Ryzen 5 2600.

But since you didn't said, more or less, how much is "a little oc" I can't really point you to cheapper options. There are other brands too:

Thing is the Arctic "Duo" should be better than any of those.

Maybe you could share with the rest of us, what frecuency are you aiming?, or Whats your budget limit?

Cheers

frequency would be 3.9ghz 4ghz max and I'd prefer for the cooler to stay under 30$
Just to update to this, I been playing around with OCking myself, on my AMD Ryzen 5 3600.

Today I managed to get it:

BIOS: F50 - AGESA 1.0.0.4B
Frecuency: 4000MHz
RAM/Fabric: 1600 (XMP profile for my RAM@3200MHz)
Vcore: 1250mv (or 1,25v).
Primer95(Small FFT -AVX OFF) been runing for 2:01 hours no issues (1 complete pass and started again).
Max Temps recorded by HWinfo (v6.14-3980) so far: 72°C while runing P95.
Cooler: Deep Cool Gammaxx GTE with only stock fan (it brings and extra pair of clips to add a second fan on the back as a push/pull setup).

I know is premature but Im happy with this :) so far (first time in my adult life I have an overclokable CPU).

I will now start the Blend test and see how it goes (I know the vcore is too low, but Im still thinking if Im going to up the vcore or lower the frecuency. In all honestly, the Ryzen 5 3600 @3600MHz - PB disable - is more than enough for gaming at @60Hz, at least for now).

Cheers
