:?: I am planning to build my first PC
Cost ~ 1100 USD

Which would be a better option:

buy a Ryzen 5 1600 and use the stock air cooler

or

buy a Ryzen 5 1600x and use aftermarket air cooler.

Also, If I were to use aftermarket air cooler, which one would be best

IF aftermarket would it be:
Hyper 212 Evo,
MasterAir Pro 4
Cryo H7
or something else ???

Budget ~40USD MAX
Do plan to OC, but conservatively/moderate

also, what is the recommended PSU to grab if my estimated watt usage is 349W?

Thank you in advance

Are you going to OC? If so how far do you wabt to take it?

Personally i would go for the 1600 with stock cooler wich seems pretty capable and quiet, even with moderate overclock.

With Ryzen, 4.0 seems to be the limit. Especially under air cooling.

Frosty Tech is a good place to look at cooler benches. - www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm

PSU - post your complete build eg GPU
R7-1700 @3900/1.375V, H110iGT, ASRock x370 Taichi, GSkill 2x8GB 3200/14 @3466/14 1.38V, Samsung 250gb EVO (W10), 2TB Barracuda, 2 x R9 Nano, EVGA G2 750, Enthoo Pro, LG 34UM88. Aizo kb, M6580, HyperX Cloud

Your case - support.nzxt.com/hc/en-us/articles/20331...-I-Fit-Into-An-S340- also limits what cooler you can use.

PSU - for a gtx 1070, you'll need at least a 500W PSU per www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm

Try to get a decent one per tiers 1 or 2 of www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/ps...t.html#xtor=EPR-8886 especially seeing as how you want to overclock the cpu.
