i am planning a gaming PC.

If you can afford it, NO.

You may face Ram clearance issues though with tall Ram heat spreaders.

Scythe Mugen 5 PCGH edition would work well, has no RAM clearance issues, and it's basically inaudible. Whether it's any cheaper than the DR4P, I don't know.

Or, for fun, stick a Thermalright Le Grand Macho on it and fiddle the fan curve so that it's off most of the time. I believe the original LGM was fanless, the LGM RT has the fan.

it looks like that this problem is solved by bequiet with version 4, i watched some yt vids about that issue

thanks for the answers, the question is if the DRP4 is oversized for this cpu.

i want it silent, yes but if someone can tell me that a way smaller cooler with the same loudness and less costs would do the same job i would be very grateful.

I think you're asking a question that would be hard to answer, as it would require someone to have tried a bunch of coolers specifically with the 3600, with noise rather than temperatures as the priority.

I'll give it a shot though. From the 3600 TDP specs (which are fantasy but at least give a vague clue), and various cooler reviews, I'm going to suggest either the Dark Rock Slim or the Pure Rock. The latter will likely have the CPU running a bit hotter for equivalent noise levels. Either one would be smaller than the DR4P, and easier to fit as well.

i watched some yt videos to get a good guess i think.

If you run ryzen 5 3600 at stock speed the Dark Rock Slim will do it's job very fine holding the temperature at around 70 degrees celcius which is fine. Source: https://youtu.be/_T18iyUAJ28?t=176

If you want to overclock any Ryzen cpu temperature is very important point, they are very sensitive to higher temperatures while overclocking them. Source: https://youtu.be/7w1EGPZUESU?t=334

I want both, i want to be able to overclock and to have a quiet System. i will go for the bigger one :D Now it's time to find out which Mainboard is suitable for good overclocking :D. Thanks for your help.

Overclocking a Ryzen 3000 usually doesn't get you any real improvement over stock boosts with a good cooler, but don't let me hold you back from trying! and there's certainly no harm in running the larger cooler if you're OK with the cost and size.
