Can't say much about 3600x, but 3600 comes with very proficient stock cooler.
I just switched to 3900x from 3600 and i never thought of replacing my stock cooler from 3600. I've already ordered replacement for the stock cooler of 3900X, he's loud as hell.
3600's cooler was excellent, you could barely hear it even under load.

Are they the same fans?Do they cool well while gaming with no overclock?
The stock fan works fine but will be loud under load as others have said.

As drea.drechsler stated above better cooling equals free performance. I changed out the stock 3600 cooler to a spare Wraith Prism and got much better cooling and a slight clock increase from 3.85 to just over 3.9 under full load. It was still too loud for my taste though so I went for the Noctua NH-D15 SE-AM4 and now it's almost silent with a 4.0-4.1 clock speed under full load...with no overclock.
