80 is pushing comfortable levels for me. I would fix it for $35 with this bad boy

Water cooling definitely isn't required, it doesn't actually do a better job of cooling unless you're doing crazy overclocking. I think a lot of people do liquid cooling because they like the way it looks and they hate noise. You can do it if you want, just be aware that it adds complexity and doesn't actually help performance for most people.
But to answer your question, the stock Wraith cooler that comes with a Ryzen 5 3600 works fine if you're not doing hardcore workloads or overclocking. I would just go with the stock cooler and pay attention to your temperatures. Then upgrade to something like a Hyper 212 or similar if you think it's necessary.

That is rather hot, and it's likely your CPU is throttling itself in order to prevent overheating. You only really have 2 choices if you want to decrease your temperatures.
- Buy a larger CPU heatsink capable of dissipating more heat. The Wraith stealth cooler is able to dissipate 65 watts of heat, whereas something like a Hyper 212 evo can dissipate up to 180 watts. Should be a simple swap, just measure the dimensions in your case to make sure you have room. (hint, you probably do if you have a Mid tower)
- If you can't get a larger CPU heatsink, you can undervolt your CPU. Like overclocking, this can introduce some instability, and is typically recommended for more advanced users. Even if successful, it won't make as much as a difference as getting a larger cooler. Just figured I'd mention it because it's free

Well, a great budget CPU cooler is the Cooler master hyper 212 Evo, it does a great job for its price but its a couple of bucks out of your budget. I think that its worth the extra money (It's around 47 - 53 CAD depending on which one you get, they're all the same but it's just for aesthetics).

Give this a consideration. I have it and my only complaint is the size of it. Otherwise it’s an all around better option than a stock air cooler for your CPU.
1 points • zakabog
You definitely need to replace the thermal compound if you haven't already, and I would suggest replacing that cooler if you can afford a cheap aftermarket cooler like the Hyper 212 Evo, it comes with thermal paste and it'll keep your CPU running for longer than your stock cooler. Intel stock coolers are awful and over time the plastic dries out and breaks. It might not be what happened in this case since when that happens the CPU will start to overheat and the PC will shutdown to protect itself.

> What kind of cooler do you have that can’t keep 6700K from crashing?
I believe it's this one.
1 points • foggiermeadows
Assuming you're not going to overclock it, the only tangible benefits to a different cooler is lower temps and therefore a quieter fan. That could also improve performance as well by a few games at least! And honestly even something as simple as this will give you drastically better temps and noise levels. Some people have seen their temps drop by 20 degrees with that little thing at CPU idle.
TLDR? The stock cooler is just fine. Upgrade if you want lower temps and lower fan noise levels, or if you plan to overclock.

No, I have the same cooler and it most definitely is mounted incorrectly. It's this or some variant of it: https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-Direct-Contact/dp/B005O65JXI/

Sorry to hear that. I don’t do liquid cooling in personal builds for that exact reason. I’m glad it’s just the pump, and not a leak. The coolermaster 212 is an inexpensive, quality air cooler. If budget is really tight, I saw Amazon renewed of the 212 for $27.

Great, used one is all I have left. I purchased it from Amazon a few months back, here is the link that says its AM3+ compatible.
1 points • m00nyoze
That's definitely a bit better. Take your time though. Make sure you look into all this stuff because that first build was a little off. This is the cooler he was talking about - Hyper 212 Evo. Also, look into an m.2 NVMe SSD. They're overall better than standard 2.5" SATA drives and are roughly the same price if maybe a little more.

Could probably get away with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler and a Cooler Master TD500 mesh unless you prefer the aesthetics of liquid cooling. Also 1080 ti? At that price range why not get a 2080 super or just wait for the 3000 cards? In a few months it will be 2 generations old

Noctua makes amazing coolers, look at the rest of their lineup. As long as it's not a slim cooler (really tiny Pcs) you should be fine with anything compatible with your processor. Cooler master has the hyper 212 evo which is one of the 10 best air coolers out there, and only like $35
1 points • AD0LF_H1PST3R
Yeah it could help and probably be the cheapest solution. The next cheapest solution is to replace your cpu fan. This is a pretty great fan that's also very cheap https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-Direct-Contact/dp/B005O65JXI?th=1

1 points • Mike_Augustine
It is, thank you! My confusion is that I'm not sure if AM3 refers to the configuration of the holes in the actual MOBO or the actual plastic socket in the MOBO's holes. For example this other fan says AM3 compatible https://www.amazon.com/-/es/gp/product/B005O65JXI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1F93VZNVSGL29&psc=1, and I'm sure it would fit if I could remove the plastic socket from my MOBO, but since it has plastic rivets instead of screws I don't have a way to remove it.

1 points • MattP598
Are you just mainly going to be using it for gaming? If so I would stick to the ryzen 5 rather than the 7. You can use the same fan but if your new cpu comes with a fan I would swap to the new one. Honestly I would buy a decent aftermarket fan rather than use the stock one. They're cheap so there's no reason not to really. This one works great https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005O65JXI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_u4.XFbX6ZY6R7

I would do a Hyper 212 honestly. Temps will be within 5% of the Noctua, they're just about as quiet, and cost a third of what the Noctuas run.

This is the old reliable as far as cpu coolers go and it's easy to buy another hyper 212 led red led fan for cheap to get dual fans i still run the evo with my i5 9600k over clocked and does me well never goes above 65 degrees even when playing cpu demanding games with 80 percent cpu usage and above like far cry 5 or red dead redemption 2 or assassins creed odyssey. https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-Direct-Contact/dp/B005O65JXI/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=hyper+212+evo&qid=1596902384&sprefix=hyper+212+&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExQk5IWEtCNjJFRVpTJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTIwNjM3N0UzVVFYQkNBTzUmZW5jcnlwdGVkQWRJZD1BMDMzODMzMTJVWEMwTUU2R0Y3Wk4md2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9waG9uZV9zZWFyY2hfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

This is my first ryzen build and I knew they typically ran hot, but not quite this hot! lol
I’m picking up a Cooler Master 212. A couple of my friends have these and recommended it too. Should do the trick! It comes with its own thermal paste but I’m ordering artic silver paste separately to knock of a few more degrees. Also it’s a bit chonky, so if you care about aesthetics I’d go with something else :p
1 points • thunderman246
So this would be OK and I would also apply thermal paste to it.

Yeah, I am a beginner in the PC gaming world so don't have much experience.
So you are suggesting that using fans would do the job & I don't need a CPU cooler, like this one.

You don’t need any type of special cooler to be honest. Just save the bucks and go with a Coolermaster hyper 212 evo.

Try this. I have a similar cooler with an APU of the same wattage. I tend to run 10c higher than ambient at idle and only 20ish higher than ambient at full load. I use Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste

That is not a good temperature for the cpu and I would be a bit worried.
Interestingly enough, I have heard about this issue a lot before; the most common reasons are:
1) the stock cooler it comes with, is poorly made, and are commonly defective
2) improper thermal paste application
If you are using a stock cooler, I would change that right away to a decent, aftermarket cooler; such as the Hyper 212 EVO;
If you are already using an aftermarket cooler; I would shut the PC down; wipe off the old thermal paste, then re-apply it. Maybe look up a video on good methods.
Let me know if any of this doesn't work, so we can look into more solutions.
1 points • blaz3gamingHD
That's probably why it's crashing then, it'll be that the cpu is getting too hot and then it'll do a thermal shutdown to prevent it from damaging the cpu. I would recommend looking online and buying a cooler that is compatible with your socket which should be socket 1151 according to google. Something like this would do the job just fine.

Not sure if I'm in the right place, but I'm having trouble upgrading my case. I bought a new CPU Cooler a while ago, link to it is below, and my case is too small to close with the new cooler by a couple inches. Looking for a cheap replacement case so I can actually close the side of my computer.

A Hyper 212 can be had from Amazon for $35. I'd save the additional $10, if that's even an issue. Don't buy anything below that. That's the cheapest reputable cooler I've ever seen.
