Best Air Coolers for Ryzen Processors

Best Air Coolers for Ryzen Processors – Being a processor targeted at gamers, Ryzen 7 5800X is a multi-core utilization king. The 7nm technology makes it efficient and worth the investment. To fully utilize its capability, we need overclocking. We compiled almost every best CPU cooler for Ryzen 7 5800X. There are mainly two categories of cooler liquid-based cooling kits and air-based coolers. In terms of efficiency, liquid coolers are ahead of air cooling. If we talk about equipment reliability and long-lasting performance, then air-cooling takes the lead. Manufacturers had added some features to make these coolers attractive with RGB lightning and customization. We will discuss a few products to help you decide which one to buy.

1.Vetroo V5

Pros & Cons

If you were looking for something more affordable than the standard CPU cooling solutions, a v5 CPU air cooler is exactly what you need.

Vetro v5 combines something for everyone at an affordable price of $30 or less on sale.

We’re looking at some low-cost CPU cooling solutions; more specifically, we will be reviewing v5 CPU air cooler and comparing it to a couple of similar low-cost cooling options.

2.Cooler Master Hyper 212

Pros & Cons

The Hyper 212 Evo v2 does away with the swing-arm flex mount bracket and makes use of a fixed torsion bar, which greatly simplifies mounting and installation of the cooler.  Cooler Master provides hardware to support most Intel and AMD CPU sockets, although Threadripper is not among them.  A set of additional fan mounting hardware is included for users seeking to add an additional fan to the Hyper 212 Evo v2 for push/pull airflow, a PWM splitter for dual fan operation and a syringe of thermal compound round out the boxed accessories.

However, the cooling fan does not offer RGB/aRGB lighting as Cooler Master appears to be sticking with the original Hyper 212 theme of budget-minded minimalism.

3.Noctua NH-L9i

Pros & Cons

Unfortunately, Noctua’s NH-L9i is only compatible with Intel-based platforms. The good news is that Noctua also sells an AMD-compatible NH-L9a. Its physical design is different, so the cooling performance results you’ll see from it are different than what we’re reporting here today.

The NH-L9i’s first surprise is in the heat sink’s sheer weight. Despite a height of just 1.46 inches, it registers 14oz including the fan (but without mounting brackets). This makes it heavier than some of the coolers in the >2-inch category.

From a purely physical perspective, Intel’s CPUs are at an advantage in that regard. But they’re also typically more expensive too, which is why we’re particularly fond of heat sinks compatible with Intel and AMD host processors.

4.Raijintek Rhea CPU Air Cooler

Pros & Cons

Not long ago Raijintek announced its Zelos and Pallos CPU coolers; now it is adding the Rhea CPU cooler to its lineup. This is a budget CPU cooler that should work as an affordable solution for improving upon stock cooling for budget systems.

Rhea is built using three 6 mm U-shaped copper heat pipes that transfer heat to an aluminum fin stack. This heat is then dissipated with the use of a 92 mm fan, which can spin at speeds between 800 RPM and 2200 RPM. At full speed it’ll make up to 27.9 dBA of noise.

The entire construction measures 93 x 59 x 118 mm, and will work on Intel LGA 1150, LGA 1155, and LGA 1156 sockets.

5.NZXT Kraken X63

Pros & Cons

Also, and this is not perse a positive, the fans are no longer controlled by the LCS unit and CAM infrastructure itself, you need to connect them towards your motherboard or fan controller to regular them. it seems to be an effort from NZXT to have you purchase an extra CAM compatible RGB/FAN HUB, but we’ll talk a bit more about that in the review. Other than that the cooling performance remains solid. This new revision CPU cooler pump and LED lighting are compatible with CAM software.

The software allows you to program, customize and monitor this all-in-one liquid cooling solution for your processor. Armed with two 140 mm PWM fans and a nice 280 mm radiator the performance should be really good, and with the CAM software you can monitor temperatures, adjust pump performance and customize LED lighting directly from your desktop.

You know, in the world of CPU coolers nothing ever stops developing. These days you can pick a hundred different heat-pipe based coolers, where many are shaped, formed and priced the same. The better heatpipe based coolers are good though. Next in line are LCS systems (liquid cooling), the entry-level products are affordable, easy to install pre-fab liquid cooling kits. We’ve seen and tested many of them as Corsair, Asetek, Cooler Master and yes NZXT and so on all have interesting kits.


Best Air Coolers for Ryzen Processors – Your PC needs to stay cool whoever there is a lot of heat associated with processor-intensive work. Every electronic piece of equipment that has ever been made loses some power through heat. That heat requires removal to avoid damage to the equipment. A CPU like the Ryzen 7 5800X is amongst the highly efficient Processors in the market but still releases a lot of heat when overclocked. Heat transfer is essential, and CPU coolers target to maintain the processor within its operating temperature range. Proper heat dissipation keeps your processor running at its required performance, and your in-game FPS remains stable. Just be sure to match the TDP of the cooler with the PL2 TDP of the processor.
