    Scythe Mugen 5 Rev. B 51.17 CFM Came with mounting components for AM4 as well as a magnetic screw driver and paste. I used Kryonaut instead of the provided paste. Mounting procedure was not difficult. Cools adequately and is not noticeably audible. I believe I have mounted the heatsink backwards. When in the correct orientation there would be more clearance for RAM. The RAM I used did not require more clearance so this was not discovered until after the build was complete. This can be corrected at a later time.

    The installation was a bit of a pain (probably since it was my first), but it is crazy silent and keeps the CPU cool.

    My favorite CPU cooler. Fans are near-silent at full speed, and the mounting system is very good.

    ~75C load on a Ryzen 7 3700x.

    Got this cooler for $47 and it was an amazing upgrade from my Hyper 212 Evo. Temps dropped by over 20°C from my Hyper 212. The mounting for this is a little odd and you'll need the included screw driver to install it, but otherwise its a breeze. This cooler is significantly bigger than the Hyper 212 as well weighing in at 762g with no fans or mounting hardware, while the 212 weighs 453g.

    This is one of the best CPU coolers I have had, good price, great performance, and looks good too!

    Before buying this air cooler, I was seriously considering a water cooler. But after doing so research and reading the forums, people had nothing but great things to say about this cooler. And given the price of this air cooler compared to a decent water cooler, I was sold on this. This thing is a beast, and I'm convinced it could do just fine as a passive cooler without the fan. Paired with a Ryzen 5 2600 OC'd to 4.2ghz @ 1.3625v, this fan keeps my CPU around 30°c, around 50°c when playing AAA games, and peaked at 70°c with a few hours of Prime95 stress testing. Very happy with this cooler.

    This thing is Kobe beef certified, with Wagyu grade cooling. Seriously, it is beefy and performs great! When overclocked to its peak performance, it hits roughly 6°-9° hotter than a AIO liquid cooler on the same Ryzen 2600 chip. If you don't want to mess with liquid cooling, I'd suggest this.

    (PCPartPicker warned that the cooler would not fit in my case but it did fit, YMMV.)

    Can't say enough about this air cooler. It cools as well, or better, than many AIO water coolers and cost much less. It is very easy to install with a very high quality quiet fan which is held to the radiator with wire clamps instead of cheap plastic like some use. Ran Prime95 for twenty minutes at 100% load on all cores and the max temp was 57ºC. Great cooler for the money.

    Able to keep my 8600K at 73C with a 5GHz over clock. Really great cooler and super easy to install.
