im building a similar ryzen 7 2700x rig atm.

was wondering if i need a new cpu cooler as ive heard the stock fan looks cool and performs well unless your video editing or manual overclocking.

the cooler you've chosen is priced around the same as the wraith prism cooler the ryzen comes with so maybe check its gonna be better than the stock.

I believe the one that comes with the 2700x is quite noisy. That's why I took one that would do the job without being too loud. Plus, having two coolers will definitely be useful if I wanna Overclock my CGU and / or my CPU. This should give the rig another two years of longevity, I believe.

Note: You will probably need a bracket for the AM4 socket. But that isn't any different than using the Shadow Rock Slim cooler, although the FUMA will keep the CPU cooler for not much more €.


Intel will get you the fastest IPS... thus, slightly higher frame rates...

Oh no not at all. AMD's Wraith Spire cooler is one of the better coolers out there, and in some cases is actually better than a lot of aftermarket fans you can buy. And you can't use CPU coolers on GPUs, that does not work.

That rig overall is pretty solid. I have the B450 Tomahawk and it's a very solid offering for $100 or less.
