Hi, I recently built my first PC and generally it works alright (with some hiccups). The problem I’m writing about here is the stock cooler for the 3600- the wraith stealth. Before the purchase I read some very conflicting opinions about amds stock cooling, but the general consensus was that it’s adequate.
My gripes with the wraith are:
- it’s just way too loud, around 35 db idle and even 45 on full load, besides that it does a lot of weird whining, probably connected to the cpu boosting and Temps rising, it’s just a constant pulsating annoying sound
- the cooling doesn’t really seems adequate, idle it sits around 40-50 C, in 1 run of cinnebench it hit 92 C, and while playing battlefield it’s constantly around 85-89 C, which terrifies me quite honestly
What I’m asking is that if I’m overreacting, or perhaps I made some mistakes with the installation. The other option is just buying a new cooler, I was thinking about the noctua nh-12s, which is cheaper than the flagships like the 15d or whatever (probably overkill, right?).
