Opinions on the Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 8 vs. R1 Ultimate and Dark Rock Pro 3

Hello all I was wondering if you guys could give me your opinion on which cooler is the best. I personally am leaning towards the Maker 8, despite it's price: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/7sL7YJ/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-mazt8pn418prr1.

I'm looking for good cooling performance primarily since I'm looking to overclock the Ryzen 7 1700 as much as possible given it is an air cooler. (I am not looking for an AIO.) - Aesthetics are important, and I believe that the Maker 8 has the best aesthetics (even though the other two still look good). - In terms of noise levels, nothing too loud, but noise is acceptable.

Thanks for your opinion

The Maker 8 was a total flop performance wise.

This out performs all of them if you tighten it right. This is on par with the likes of a EK Predator 240, Corsair H105, Freezer 240, etc. You will need a AM4 bracket for it though.

I was kinda looking for a dynamic where my opinion givers compared the DRP3, the Cooler Master and the CRYORIG, but thank you for your input, since I was considering that cooler at one point, and will reconsider it! :)
