So he says is a 3700x Ryzen stock cooler, he doesn't need it has an AIO I guess so I want the cooler I like the aesthetics.

So guys, I am aiming for $25 for it, I am robbin' the guy? Just wondering, AM4 is AM4, does it works in my Ryzen 3 1200? Can you believe I don't have 8 threads even? I am about to go for a Ryzen 5 1600 for the octacore performance too so lemme know.

Kthxbye

$25 hmmm that's pretty pricy for that cooler. You can get better options for $25. I would say maybe $15 at most. $10 would be optimal.

But yeah if you get it, it'll work really well with a 1600 or 1200, you should be able to do some minor overclocking aswell.

Hello TechyInAZ,

I'm glad to have a mod here.


I have this other option for around $40 too and I do like the aesthetic since it does gives a bit of resonance to the case itself, the Aorus ATC 700:



2 Months usage and I think I can get it in around $40 too, sorry is my country prices and I'd need a lot of negotiation to lower down from the $50 he's asking lul.

So should I go for that Aorus or also have a Noctua NH-12 possiblity, lemme know your thoughts, thanks.

You might want to read some reviews on that gigabyte cooler before you buy. Apparently its really hard to install and has terrible ram clearance. The stock coolers on the 1600 and 1200 are totally fine. I wouldn't buy a 1200 regardless. If its purely a cosmetic decision, deep cool and cooler master make $40 RGB coolers.

Thank you, thank you, I do use the cpu.benchmark site to compare, I only focus on the core speeds percentage since they actually set price and that changes too much in all countries and even used, etc, so I see for example the 3rd generation of +3000 Ryzen's as the one our mod has is an Ryzen 5 3600, here I can get a Ryzen 5 1600 for exactly $110 so I'll try to aim for that one, the cpu.benchmark site comparison is showing almost no difference on the Ryzen 5 1600 against the 3600 or I think it was the 3200 that's still somehow close, I wonder what's the benefit behind the real 6 core 12 threads that are the default on Ryzen 5 between 1600 against 3600 if it's not just a marketing strategy from the Ryzen itself.

Cuz I have the 4 cores 4threads I think Ryzen 3 1200, so I'll definitely make an upgrade that's considerable to a Ryzen 5 1600 and then I wonder what would be the real benefits behind aiming higher that will give at least 20% more of performance in all that derived core/thread specs because the ++3k are not actually showing up that still it does give like 4% overall and lemme know because I am just trying to get updated on all these new stuff.
