AMD processor series was lacking a powerful 8 core gaming CPU to complete with the Intel Core i7 lineup. The fans were angry and wanted more from AMD. AMD have replied with its hot new Ryzen lineup. The waiting time has finally ended once and for all. AMD, with the launch of their Ryzen 7, made it the most anticipated processor launched in the current year for the enthusiast market. It is going to change quite a lot of things for AMD fans and the company itself. It is certainly going to compete against the Intel Core i7 processors for the first time, since their launch and after 7 generations of processors. Most of the gamers are turning towards it since they are getting an 8 core processor at less than half the price of an equivalent Intel’s octa-core range. So coming to the point, a good gaming processor also requires a compatible cooler for better stability and durability during its lifetime. Since it is the new product in the market, there are very fewer resources available for finding a compatible CPU cooler for Ryzen 7. If you a PC builder, you can very pick and choose the right ones based on its specs and price range. For the rest of you who are not, this article is just for you. We have compiled a list of top AMD Ryzen 7 CPU Coolers, read along to find out more.

The Be Quiet! Ryzen 7 CPU Coolers:
- Pure Rock:
Within its range, it is considered one of the high cooling capacity units, working at 130W TDP. It is equipped with 6mm heat pipes with aluminum caps. They help the unit to carry heat to cooling fins in order to improve performance. The design is very compact, which saves a lot of space in the case. It is possible to install it with a vast array of components. Another advantage of its design is that it offers great convenience while mounting it. It can be mounted from atop of the motherboard, making it quite easy to install and remove.
Currently, it is compatible with all modern AMD and Intel sockets. It is ultimately a perfect heat solution for most of the modern CPUs regardless of any brand name.
- Shadow Rock:
This one is capable of delivering a cooling capacity of 160W TDP. There are 6 high-performance heat pipes in the unit, each of 6mm. they carry heat from nickel plated copper base plate to optimal locations on the cooling fins. Most significant thing is that it supports an additional 120mm fan for better cooling. You will receive a set of fan clips with the unit for this purpose. It is equipped with a 135 fan that generated no to minimal noise when it is spinning. The unit is creatively designed for always maintaining the balance between cooling performance and noise.
The inbuilt fan is equipped with nine airflow optimized blades, certainly the main reason behind such smooth functionality of the fan. Rifle bearing technology is just another addition, increasing the durability of the unit.mmm
- Dark Rock 3:
As the name implies, it is the third and improved version of Dark rock. It is equipped with dynamic wave counter cooling fins coupled with an enhanced cooling area and small surface dots. All these together improve air circulation and convection efficiency while keeping the noise minimal. The cooling capacity of the unit can even enhance with an additional slot available for a 120mm fan.
It is equipped with six heat pipes with copper lining and aluminum caps. They help in improving heat conductance by carrying heat to appropriate fins location. Temperature is always kept minimal with a high cooling capacity of 190W TDP. In this version of Dark Rock, the arrangement of cooling pipes is tweaked for better performance and heat conductivity.
- Silent Loop (240mm):
Silent Loop (240mm) is a water cooler. It delivers 350W extreme cooling capacity. It is equipped with dual fans. Both are 120mm fans. Both of them are pure wings 2 PWM, equipped with 9 blades and rifle bearing. Since the dual fans are paired with 350W extreme cooling capacity, the heat is always kept at minimal. It comes with a full copper radiator, paired with a reverse flow pump for further enhancement. The pump is of decoupled type. You will get the advantage of the nickel plated cold plate as well, in the unit.
- Dark Rock Pro 3:
As the name implies, it is improved version of Dark Rock 3 cooling unit. Air circulation is increased with dynamic wave-contour cooling fins and small surface dots. They also help in improving convection without producing much of noise. With compact double tower design, the unit is made much lighter and easy to mount/dismount. An additional 120mm fan can be installed for more improved cooling capacity.
Seven heat pipes help to improve conductance by carrying heat to cooling fins. These pipes come with copper lining and aluminum caps for better performance. The overall unit is capable of delivering 250W TDP cooling capacity. It will ensure the system temperature is kept minimal even in rough performance situations.
