It’s extremely important to keep your processor running at cool temperatures, otherwise you run the disk of destroying components due to frying them from way too much heat. Luckily, there are safeguards in place in 2018 that stop components from destroying themselves (such as a CPU’s automatic shutdown safeguard), but that still renders a computer unusable until you can figure out the cooling problem. Luckily, at least for the processor — the cooling problem is easily solved with a CPU cooler and heatsink combination component. Set up one of those on your motherboard, and you’ll keep your processor at a range that is normal.
Not sure what the best air CPU coolers for Ryzen 1800 are, or even which ones go with the processor? We’re showing you five of our top choices below. Let’s get started.
Noctua 14cm U-Series Single Tower CPU Cooler
Fifth up, we’re looking at the Noctua 14cm U-Series Single Tower CPU Cooler. If you’re looking for a high-end air CPU cooler, this is your guy. Whether you’re looking to overclock and push your Ryzen 1800 as hard as you can, or you’re simply looking to do some high-end gaming and/or development, the Noctua will have no problem keeping your processor and chipset cool. This one, as the product implies, is a Tower Cool — that said, it comes in at 150mm in size, making it difficult to fit in your average computer case, though not impossible.
Cooler Master Hyper 212
Coming in at number four is a popular cooler, partially because it’s marketed towards the budget market. It’s the Cooler Master Hyper 212, and it will cost you less than $30. That said, it is made out of cheap materials, but don’t let that hold you back from the Hyper 212 — in terms of performance, it’s an excellent cooler. With several heat pipes built into this cooler that make direct contact with the Ryzen 1800, the Hyper 212 is able to dissipate heat at a much faster rate. This makes it much easier to overclock and generally put the processor through its paces.
Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 8
Coming in as our number three choice, we have the Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 8, an excellent choice for those that want a top of the line cooling for their new Ryzen 1800. One of our favorites parts of the MasterAir Maker 8 is how versatile it is — it’ll fit with most motherboards and computer cases out on the market right now. One of its highlights is that it’s equipped with a 3D Vapor Chamber — unique technology to the MasterAir Maker 8 — which leverages cooling efficiency to provide better and more efficient cooling to your CPU and motherboard. Cooler Master has actually equipped the MasterAir Maker 8 with eight heat pipes that make direct contact with the processor, dissipating heat at incredible rates — you[‘ll be able to overclock or play high-end games without a problem.
Cryorig H7 Tower Cooler
Secondly, we have the H7 Tower Cooler by Cryorig. Need a high performance cooler to keep up with the tasks your putting the Ryzen1800 through? Then this one will have no problem keeping your processor at normal operating temperatures. This one is a massive cooler designed to keep up with the heat output that comes from higher processing demands, such as high end gaming, overclocking, video editing, and more. Another large CPU cooler, this one might be a little difficult to install, all depending on your setup; however, it’s nowhere near as bad as the Noctua we mentioned earlier.
DeepCool Gammaxx 400
Coming up as our first choice, there’s the DeepCool Gammaxx 400. What’s really attractive about this air CPU cooler is that it’s versatile. Whether you’re running a compact PC case, a normal case, or a tower, the Gammaxx 400 will have no trouble fitting inside on your motherboard. Not only that, but it should work for both Intel and AMD sockets. DeepCool is able to provide some excellent cooling capabilities with the Gammaxx 400, and that’s due in part because of the four copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the CPU. Suffice to say, when your processor is under heavy load, you’re going to get incredible heat dispersement rates, making overclocking and demanding tasks much easier.
As you can see, there are a lot of excellent air CPU coolers for Ryzen 1800. We’ve shown you at least five of the best available today; and any one of them will have no issue keeping your processor at the temperature levels they need to be at. If you’re on a budget, you don’t have to worry about buying a big, expensive CPU cooler — any one of these will keep your Ryzen 1800 at normal temps; however, if you do a lot of overclocking and spend a lot of time on intensive tasks, some of the higher end CPU coolers will be something that you can depend on a little easier.
