    "There's less to go wrong, costs tend to be lower, there's usually only one source of noise, and depending on socket support, there's a good chance a quality air cooler will see you through multiple builds with little more than the occasional vacuum."

    Is this true? I wanted to reuse my Coolermaster Hyper 212 from my ivy bridge system on my new Ryzen build. I tried to find an AM4 adapter and coolermaster only released one (as part of a kit) for a short period of time and the kit now costs (if you can find it) at least £20 which is crazy for a £30 cooler! Is it any better with the higher end coolers? I know Noctua have done kits but not heard of others doing so.

    be quiet! did a free AM4 kit for a while. I missed it, but they sent me one for €5 when I contacted their service department; Coolermaster might not be as forthcoming but you never know!

    Re: Deepcool AS500

    Considering the price/performance of air coolers, shouldn't there be a wider range of aio coolers used in the comparison when doing cooler reviews i.e. include some 240mm models that are closer in price than the more expensive 280/360 models?
