Hey, I have two CPUs, one I purchased for myself and the other for my brother. I am trying to OC both processors but it gets too hot within 5 minutes. I am not sure why this is happening.

Both of the processors are using ASRock B450 Steel Legend Socket AM4 I got from Amazon, and they came great. Now I am planning to buy a CPU cooler that can go with the b450 motherboard and keep the CPUs cool.

Is there anyone who is using a CPU cooler with any of the processors mentioned? Please let me know about your experience.

Yes, of course, your processor will heat up if you OC, and also that without a cooler. I mean what are you thinking to do. If you could have continued doing this there was a good chance that you would burn the CPU itself.

Now back to the question. Well for 3600X and 36000 I would recommend buying Noctua NH D-15 or if you are into AIO then NZXT X53.

I have been using NHD15 for my 3600 and it works well, and since 3600x is almost similar in nature, I guess it will work fine with it as well. With the cooler, I am getting a temp of an average of 60 Celcius when fully overclocked and have no trouble with lags.

You can also see" rel="nofollow - 3600x and" rel="nofollow - 3600 complete benchmarks and analyses when paired with NHD15 to make a decision.
