I really don't wanna do an AIO liquid cooler and would rather just pick a nice tower cooler. Any good ones that come with the proper AM4 mounting kit (don't want to have to wait to get the mount).

Thanks!

Noctua d15 for am4 :)
A fine effective and low noise solution.
Can mount any direction.

I have one. Set my fanprofile to minimum all the way to 65c. Max at 75c
Under full load on my 1700 stoc it stays a 375rpm. Lol. You cant hear if your cpu is running max or idle.
Cool.

Thanks krumme, is there any other models that aren't quite so large? That thing is a beast! lol.

The D14 is 120mm instead of 140. A smaller fan will be a little louder but Noctua is still the best air cooler under load (which is when it matters) from what I've read.

Either NH-U14s with AM4 kit to be requested separately or NH-U12s SE AM4.

Using Deepcool Gammaxx 400, I'm getting 29-32C idle and 55C max using AIDA 64 benchmark for an hour.

Sorry about that, mods can move this please. I'm wondering if there's a decent 120-240MM AIO cooler to use instead. Something smaller but reasonably quiet.
