There are several different ways to keep your PC cool, but one of the most basic and affordable is using air. With a decent air cooler like the Cryorig R1 Ultimate (opens in new tab) on your CPU, you'll still get great performance and, in the right circumstances, room for overclocking.

Whatever your PC build, there's a great air cooler to go in it. Whether you need a low-profile choice like the Silverstone Argon AR-06 (opens in new tab) or want silence from something like the Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 (opens in new tab), there's something out there for you.
