Not necessarily, a gokd air cooler can cool it prettt well, but nothing conventional beats a big rad with good fans. Don't get me wrong, I like what AMD is doing with Ryzen, forcing Intel to be more competitive, as long as i don't think too much on how the chips are built. Personally I prefer Intel, just because of the better per core performance (gaming), OC ability and not being as RAM dependant, but I'm looking to the 7nm Zen architecture. Both manufacturers have their place, fanboying for either side just makes you sound stupid in general. Not trying to offend anyone, but it needed to be said.
