In my new build I have decided to move away from AIO coolers, I don’t overclock other than the built in with XFR2. I initially thought I would just use the Stock Wraith Prizm as I have seen many good reviews on it, but the fan get’s a little louder than I like, and I have seen temps in the 85c range while running prime95 and other benchmarks.
I’m thinking of either the beQuiet! Dark Rock 4 Pro or Noctua NH-D15 SE-AM4, from the reviews I can find they seem to be the best for air cooling.
Pros for the DH-15 it has slightly better thermals according to the reviews I have seen,
Cons the brown fans.
Pros for the beQuiet it’s slightly quieter by 1 to 2 db, looks nice. Cons is 2-3 c hotter in reviews than the NH-D15.
Is there another air cooler I should be looking at?
