    Hi All,

    Just about to pull the trigger on this

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £465.43 (includes shipping: £10.50) ​

    What's the best mid to upper range Air cooler to go with this, was going to transfer my Cryorig R1 Ultimate across, but the AM4 Mounting Bracket is out of Stock?

    I am a big fan of the Noctuas.

    I have a NH-D14 which is sensational.

    You could go for a NH-D15. I think it comes in black now.

    Its huge so make sure it fits if you buy one.

    Might be over kill for a 5600x, but I bought mine with my 3570k and I am still using it today.

    Would just use the stock cooler till you can source a bracket either from OCUK or somewhere else as it seems a bit of a waste buying a whole new cooler.

    The 5600x is by no means a power hungry cpu and whilst gaming I have never seen my 5900x go over 110w, 5900x is 2 5600x in one chip so twice as much potential power draw.

    The NH14 is an amazing air cooler but massively overkill for a low wattage cpu like the 5600x. I hate to agree with Joxeon again but you should just use the stock cooler until you can get a bracket for your current cooler

    If you really want something now.

    A lot cheaper than NH14 and will do the job for a low power cpu really well.

    Thanks All,

    Intention was to move my I5-7600K to my son's old I5-3570 build which has soldiered on for nearly 10 Years, unfortunately the Cryorig AM4 Bracket is out of stock with no lead time - hence thinking about the the Brocken 3.

    A quick google shows it's available elsewhere.

    Also for £6 more you can get a better board, 6layer vs 4 on the elite and better ram.

    THREAD HIJACK!!!

    Do you actually get much benefit from an aftermarket cooler with the 5600X? I've seen reports that it runs quite cool and that the supplied Wraith cooler is quite good, so what are you getting for spending the extra money?

    Didn't use it in the end, bought the Brocken 3 dual fan.

    Sits quite happily at 29 at idle, around 50 gaming and 75 -80 in cinebench using the supplied paste.

    Not sure if that's ok or not coming from a long time intel user.
