    Needing Help Finding A Cheap, but GOOD CPU Fan


    I just ordered the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Processor (YD180XBCAEWOF), and from what i'm reading, it does not come with a stock fan. I'm wondering if someone could help me find an AM4 CPU Fan (I ordered a new motherboard too). The fan needs to be under $30.00. I have the stock fan on my current AMD-FX 8350, but AM3 won't fit into an AM4 without a bracket, which i do not have. So if someone could help me, I'd greatly appreciate it. Another thing, I will need to purchase it from Amazon cuz I have gift card credit there.

    I've been searching for the past 2 days, trust me. . lol I mean, i'm not sure if ALL AM4 fans would keep this $499 processor cool. I just don't want it overheating.

    Interesting, the several AMD CPUs I've purchased over the last 15 years have come bundled with the required fan.

    Yeah same here. I've bought about 4 or 5 AMD processors and they have came with a stock fan. NOW, maybe mine will come with one tomorrow, but from what I have read, it won't.

    They stopped doing that and so did Intel why pack a Heatsink and fan when most of us buy aftermarket cooling these days most get a contained water loop just saying

    I found this:
    Buy the ASUS Crosshair VI Hero and you can use your old AM3 compatible mount as long as you grab a AM3 backplate which is available for 6 bucks on amazon as it has holes for both AM3 and AM4.
