Here's my build so far.

Ryzen 2600
MSI Mortar B450M
1TB SSD
Corsair RM550X
Noctua NF-S12A
MSI 1060 6GB
Fractal Define Mini C

Seems like a pretty quiet build but I was wondering which cooler would be good for the 2600. Do you guys have any ideas? I thought a Mugen 5 would be overkill. I don't plan to OC because of the smart boost.

You probably would be fine with Scythe Kotetsu, but you will also need the AM4 mount.

If you mean XFR2/PBO, I thought that was only on the x models? I might be confused...

I recently bought a Ryzen 2400g and put a noctua NH-L12s on it. It got hotter than I liked during some loads, though I suspect something weird was going on with my boost clocks (I was getting all cores at max boost, when it should have only been 1 core that hits that), after a reboot this behavior would change. I got tired of troubleshooting and just disabled all boost in BIOS, so I am limited to 3.6 Ghz max (the base), but that way I am also locked at 65W max (TDP for ryzen is spec'd at base clock, and seems to be accurate in my experience, per my kill-a-watt). For my uses, this is plenty. In hindsight, I wish I would have gotten a beefier cooler, though, like one of the 140mm noctua towers or a Mugen 5 or something. Other towers are cheaper than the noctuas, but noctua fans are very good (though ugly) so I think it's worth the premium. Very easy mounting too, though some require an AM4 kit.

How would the Kotetsu compare to the Mugen in thermals and noise? I'm assuming the Mugen would be better given the larger heatsink which means better temps and the newer fan with rubber vibration pads.

Should be similar, both coolers are 120mm fan cooled, the mugen has the advantage of being offset to the back so proabaly any memory will fit, but performance wise, should be very similar.

Do you know what each one is rated? I think the Kotetsu is only rated for 95w or is it 65w?

No, i don't know the ratings cooler TDP rating, but to me those ratings are meaningless, as with CPUs they are rough figure, just to get an idea but really dont tell you how or what to expect. I own atm Thermalright True Spirit Power, rated for 360W, and it struggles to cool a delided i9 7940x on air with 2x TY147A @14000rpms, by number its suppose to cool better than the Silver Arrow (to say a cooler from the same brand), and D15S, if it was correct it would have a breeze with the cpu, which @ stock has a 165W tdp, but in reality it struggles.

Honestly both coolers are good, the Kotestu was reviewed by SPCR and called it the A Compact King, and the mugen4 was also reviewed and came out well, the mugen5 was not review by SPCR, but in my personal inspection seems better all around, better mounting than Mugen3, more area of dissipation, more wide spread fins for better low rpm operation, etc. Now if you ask me, either its a good choice, and neither will be noticeable different in cooling or temperature, but i prefer Mugen5 since it already comes with AM4 mount and its offest in case i use taller memory. Others that are worth it imo is Thermalright Macho RevB and True Spirit 140 Power and Noctua NH-U14S (i like this one a lot, but because of pricing i don't recommended too much), but really depends on what you have available near you and the pricing.
