Just got Argon One. It's really beautifull case but can't cool RPI4B @2ghz for 20mins on full load. Cheapest Chinese case with heatsinks and fan all for 4USD have much better performance.

Strange. See https://magpi.raspberrypi.org/articles/group-test-best-raspberry-pi-4-thermal-cases-tested-and-ranked
It should have enough power to cool it, albeit with the help of a fan. Does it have proper thermal contact?
If you need more performance... well.. look at the only other case that beat it in that review.

There's some other comparison over here:
https://github.com/nschloe/stressberry
but be warned, it doesn't record ambient temperatures, which adds an offset. Hard to compare exactly.

And if you are after some extreme cooling, see this

Have fun ;)

Just FYI, I have my RPI4 4GB (or a second one with 8GB) OC'ed to 2100MHz, over_voltage=6, core at 550MHz. Typical temperature deltas:
Idle - 10°C
Firefox running - 14°C
Max load (stress-ng or linpack) - 22°C
All passive, not with that 60mm Noctua fan. It slashes it even more.
