Best cpu cooler for my setup?

Hey there, I've recently bought my first "game-pc" not too expensive and nothing OP. Oh and I don't have any knowledge of the technical stuff.. which is exactly why I came to this forum.

As I play a lot of medium sized games (R6S, AC etc.) I noticed my cpu temperature running up to 75 degrees Celcius and read that my cpu is a real hothead.. (I will note my specs down beneath) I really don't want my pc to destroy itself

Now I'm wondering what cooler would be the best option for me?

I've checked the fan it came with and it's the factory one I think (says: Dkm-7D52A-A6-GP) Still has enough white coolingpaste on it.

My budget is about 60-70 euros.

Specs: AMD FX8350 8core 16gb RAM Nvidea GeForce GTX1050 ti

Case: Sharkoon Vaya II Value Max cpu cooler 165mm

Think thats all you need.. oh and if there's anything you'd change about my setup, please tell me!

Thanks!

Note: Get the Mugen, it's cheaper!

recently bought

FX8350

Oof. I hope you didn't pay too much for it, that's an older, hot, and poorly performing CPU.

75 degrees C while gaming

That's... surprisingly OK. Nowhere near thermal throttling. If it was hitting 90 I'd be concerned. You probably don't have much overclocking headroom, but I don't think I'd drop money just to try to overclock an 8350.

60-70 euro

That's a used Ryzen CPU (or almost a new 1600 AF) with some left over to put toward a board. Your temps aren't that terrible while gaming, so I'd just save your money for a platform upgrade.

Thanks for your feedback! Paid about 300eu. Alltogether, isn't that expensive hehe As I said, I have 0 knowledge about all of this, so don't think I can build my own better setup, and buying a complete pc is more expensive (I think)
