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.
In our second episode of Adored Tech, Alex and Donny will discuss the launch of the RX 6500 XT, the rumored RX 6000 series refresh, the upcoming RTX 3050 and more.

For this impressive, chart-topping cooling capacity I am awarding the EK AIO Elite 280 D-RGB our Gold Award.
In multi-threaded tasks the 12700 is just shy (~8%) of AMD's Ryzen 5900x on average, and a bit faster (~16%) in single threaded tasks. Cooling it is easy, and for most users the included stock cooler will actually suffice in most tasks - although it does run a bit noisy. With an expected retail price of ~$350, the i7 12700 packs a great value - especially when paired with a b660 motherboard. It's crazy to think that for the price of a 5900x, you can get this CPU and a motherboard
