Looking for something nice to pair with my Ryzen 5 2600

Looking for a cooler to pair with my Ryzen 5 2600. Looking to hopefully have some overclocking headroom. I have a B450 pro4 motherboard, and a Corsair Spec-Delta RGB case. Liquid or Air is fine. Max budget is ~$100 CAD

The 2600 doesn't run all that hot. Scythe Mugen 5, Thermalright Macho (or Macho Direct, or even 120 SBM), beQuiet Pure Rock, FSP Windale 4 or even 6, Arctic Freezer 34 in its many variants, all would work nicely (and better than the stock cooler).

2Tek_'s suggestion is sound, but IMO rather overkill for a 2600.

How does a 120mm AIO stack up aganist these coolers?

I don't honestly know, I don't pay much attention to AIO's. Just guessing, I'd say a 120mm AIO would probably match the smaller ones from the above list, say the Freezer 34, but that is just a guess.
