    I'm currently running a Ryzen 1600 in an NZXT H510 with 2x Arctic Cooling P14 and 1 x P12 but stock cooler is quite noisy when it ramps up. What is the best cooler that is actually in stock anywhere for £50-60. Don't mind AIO or air coolers.

    Was looking at Noctua U12S or Arctic Freezer 2 as something for comparison, think I've got about 160mm to play with from MB to case.

    Most of the Scythe models would fit the bill if you can get them. Frostytech is a good site for CPU cooler reviews.

    Dark Rock 4, non Pro should be a whisper.
    Slightly over at 64 here on OC.
    Cheaper option Arctic Freezer 34 esports.
    I would also recommend setting longer gaps for temperature in BIOS, let's say 40% up to 50C, 50% up to 65C and 70% (or higher) 75C.
    Also wothy using some delay of how long before the fans speed up and down, avoiding constant droning. (usually 2. something seconds, or 6 seconds).
    The offset temperature the 1000 series uses (at least the 1600x I had used) would "force" the fans to speed-up every time.
