    I am building a new PC with an AMD Ryzen 2700X CPU, 32 gb. of RAM, a MSI GTX 1080 graphics card and an Asus Rog Strix X470-F Gaming motherboard. The computer case is a Cooler Master Silencio 452. What CPU cooler do you reccomend? I am not a gamer and I do not overclock the CPU. I only want to use the new PC for video editing and audio. I have a Cooler Master Masterliquid 120 liquid cooler for the CPU. Is it good enough, or do you reccomend another one?

    Looks like a nice system. You do understand the coolermaster 120 does not fit an am4 socket without the adapter kit correct?
    Personally I am not a fan of water cooling [even though my ryzen system is water cooled]
    One of the coolermaster 212 type coolers [that are compatible with am4] will work fine. As long are you are not overclocking, there is no real need for water cooling.

    The 2700X comes with a good air cooler in the box. But if you already have the water cooler I suppose you might as well use it.
