    I'd go with a Ryzen R5 2600 with a cheap as chips B450 motherboard instead.

    The cpu costs a bit more but the motherboard will save you a lot, so it will end up cheaper overall and you will have 6 cores / 12 threads instead of 4 cores / 4 threads.

    Just use the stock fan, it's pretty decent.

    Put the savings towards an additional 8GB RAM.
