The one with the biggest after-market (bought separately) cooler on it. If a cpu comes with a factory cooler included it's typically not very good - I mean it'll work but it's not meant for high-stress cooling. Some cpu's don't even come with a minimal factory cooler and are just the cpu, now.

....lol.  :) You can get smaller/shorter ones that work better than factory-included ones might, for basic, non-overclocked cooling. Those may keep a cpu 5-10C cooler than factory. Or go liquid cooling instead (which I barely know anything about technically).

Liquid cooling isn't much cooler than air, but it takes longer to get warm, and you have more area to spread your fans over. If you're going overclock crazy you will want water generally speaking.

You can check this yourself. A CPU that has a high TDP (Thermal Design Profile) will be tougher to cool. Lower is better (in this case).

 

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600E is (up to) 4GHz under a 45W TDP. That will be pretty easy to cool.

The Intel Corei9-9990XE is also 4GHz (stock) but has a 255W TDP. It's a small super nova, impossible to cool.

And will happily suck up to 500W from the socket, with no manual overclock...

 

An industrial aquarium chiller ought to do the trick cooling wise, luckily Intel has one sitting around.

Thank you all for your advices, I am thinking on the Coolermaster Hyper TX3 EVO CPU Cooler, is cheap and the reviews I have seen are quite good. Thanks once again
