Hi there. I have the Ryzen 5 2600 on a Biostar X470GT8 motherboard and I was looking for a good cpu cooler to overclock with. Most of the coolers I've looked at give me a compatibility note that says something like: "The Noctua - NH-U9S 46.44 CFM CPU Cooler may require a separately available mounting adapter to fit the Biostar - X470GT8 ATX AM4 Motherboard." I'm not sure if this is something I need to worry about, and if so, what should I do? Also, I would appreciate a recommendation for a solid cpu cooler for this processor. Thanks!
P.S. Should I buy third-party thermal paste? I've never done that.
