Re: Ryzen 7 5800x CPU cooler - is this one good enough?

Thanks for the suggestions. Forgot to mention:

Asus Tuf Gaming B550M - Plus (mATX)

MSI GTX 1650 Super Gaming

Cooler Master N200 (mini tower) case - "Supports air CPU cooler heights up to 160mm/6.3inch." Also "Supports a 240mm liquid cooling radiator in the front."

This is one of those components I´m trying not to overspend on since I am already paying more than MSRP for the CPU, Motherboard, Monitor, pretty much everything else, and let´s not even talk about the GPU. Not at all concerned or interested in RGB. Prefer air to water cooling. Was hoping to find something decent for around $30, which would hopefully be around $40 here.

Thermalright, Scythe, and Zalman brands are not available in this country. Have come across Deepcool, but not that particular cooler. There´s a guy online selling a used ("like new") Noctua NH-U12s for around $65, but he lives half way across the country. Buying used here is always kind of risky, and combine that with buying used online without getting to see that an item actually works is not at all recommended. No ebay/PayPal guarantees.

I´ll search around for those suggested coolers and maybe I´ll get lucky and find something somewhere where the shipping doesn´t double the cost.

Cooler Master seems to be the most popular mainstream brand available.

Here´s some of what´s available. Lot of duplication:
