This is a great cooler for the 5600x. After running CPUz's stress test for 5 minutes, the 5600x stayed just a hair below 60 degrees C. All cores were going between 4475 to 5500mhz and wattage was at 72. I have the fan profile for the motherboard (Aorus X570 elite wifi) set to quiet, in this respect at idle, this cooler is very quiet, but as it ramps up, it can get a little noisy but nothing extreme. Using MX3 thermal paste. It was easy to install and has been working flawlessly for over a year.
None as long as it is suited for the CPU, I wouldn't use this on a 5800x or higher since those are well known to run pretty hot.
Excellent cooler for the price, you can save a little money by not getting the RGB or even the black edition.
