Looking for an air cooler to install with my build

Here is my build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/989yP3 I am building my first pc and I am trying to find an air cooler for a little bit of overclocking headroom. I am also open to any opinions on my other parts that I have listed here.

Your 2600X comes with a Wraith Spire stock cooler included in the box. If you clean off the stock paste and replace with something fancier, like Thermal Grizzly, you might find it does the job just fine. I've also read that there's very little OC headroom with the 2600X and 2700X (which I have), given the efficiency and effectiveness of the Ryzen 2nd gen Boost technology.
