Thermalright's Silver Soul 135 is one of the few dual tower air coolers available at a budget price point of $30-$35. It pairs best with a CPU like AMD's Ryzen 7 7700X or Intel's i5-13600K, but it can handle hotter CPUs well too.
Cougar's Forza 135 features quality German engineering and a sturdy build with solid black fans without flashy lighting. It's one of the best air coolers I've tested with AMD's Ryzen 7 7700X and should do well with any modern CPU.
DeepCool's AG500 performed well in our testing, especially when noise normalized for silent operation. At only $39.99, it won't break the bank either - this is firmly in budget territory. If you're looking for a good performing air cooler that isn't noisy, you won't go wrong with DeepCool's GAMMAXX AG500 BK ARGB.
DeepCool’s LT720 WH is one of the few coolers capable of keeping AMD's Ryzen 7700X under TJMax in any workload – provided you don’t raise the power limits.
EK Water Block's EIO Elite 280 D-RGB has serious cooling capacity whether it's set to a silent noise profile or running unrestricted. It's the first cooler I've tested that has managed to keep AMD's Ryzen 7 7700X under TJMax during rendering workloads, a feat I previously had considered impossible. For this impressive, chart-topping cooling capacity I am awarding the EK AIO Elite 280 D-RGB our Gold Award.
