    Hahaha that's pretty cool and get's carded too for alcohol

    I tell women our age that the only drawback to looking younger is when you are with someone your age and time hasn't been good to them and people will actually think the other person is much older and say they robbed the cradle or better yet think it's a parent hahaha

    I have heard that before ,some of these younger women look 40 already which is pretty sad
    My favorite compliment to a lady with a daughter: "Gee you have great looking sister".

    Simple. What is cheap? It depends on how much money one has.

    On the most part cpu cooling should be the best you can afford and fit on your system. If one must wait because of lack of money that fine. Just don't use the cpu without proper cooling. One could end up with a toaster instead of a cpu. A very costly one time toaster.

    I have never used a stock cpu cooler on any cpu. AMD or Intel.
    For air cooling I would not use anything less that a quality Noctua or Phantek. You will have to make sure they will fit. They are somewhat large.
    Their are a bunch of AIO liquid coolers that can be used. Millions of people use them without problems.
    I have used both air cooled and AIO liquid cooling and had very good success with the proper fans, up to a point.
    These cooling methods I believe will meet pixegurl83 needs.

    OP already stated his view of cheap in the first post: "The fan needs to be under $30.00". Problem is that it's next to impossible to find something better than that Wraith that comes with processor for that price.

    I'm fully aware of that. I stated my opinion and suggestions. I believe that is still allowed.

    Just for the sake of peace lol let it go

    He just voiced his opinion and you as well let's shake hands

    Any how the Op will find out very fast and learn a harsh lesson if the advice noted isn't taken

    Realistically why show up to a forum needing help when you pretty much know what suits you lol

    Worth mentioning that on the early tests of the Ryzens, the Wraith Coolers received good reports, they are apparently not the usual junk that you get as a stock cooler.

    Early, non Wraith coolers were junkier than junk, on top Wraith coolers even mid size OC is possible and above all they are much quieter.

    The cooling fan from my AMD FX 8350 (STOCK) fit perfectly on my AM4. . My CPU still runs about 140F though. I would love to get that down about 50 degrees. I guess i'm gonna have to find someway to purchase liquid cooling, which is something I never thought I would do.

    Exactly now you know why we were so hard about getting the right cooling

    Also what type of paste you use when mounting the cooler ?
