Silent

Noctua NH-L9a-AM4, Premium Low-profile CPU Cooler for AMD AM4 (Brown)
Noctua NH-L9a-AM4, Premium Low-profile CPU Cooler for AMD AM4 (Brown)

Pros: I'm using this with my AMD Ryzen 7 1800. I don't overclock, so it is completely silent. It doesn't impinge on the memory area of the motherboard at all. Easy to install.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I would purchase this again, and probably will when I upgrade my other computers.

Great SSD!
