I have a Ryzen 2600 and I won't OC. I find the default cooler too noisy (I don't have heating problems, max temp after a stress test was 67ºC).

My priority is reducing noise. I have checked some candidates and I've seen their max dB, but most of the time I won't have my CPU at 100%.

I have the following candidates: Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT, Thermalright ARO-M14G, Noctua NH-U12S SE-AM4 and Be Quiet! Dark Rock 4. The prices are approximately the same.

Which one do you recommend me? Thank you!

Finally I bought Be Quiet! Dark Rock 4. I can't compare with the other ones but it is what I was looking for. I barely hear it.
