Should I keep the AMD Wraith prism cooler that comes with my 2700X or go for an aftermarket cooler?

just curious because many people have told me to NOT buy an aftermarket cooler, but many have also told me TO buy an aftermarket cooler because it is loud and the performance is not good. I just need some help making up my mind and clearing up some things

my parts list is here https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/bKPV27

Budget is around $1400 - $1500 Canadian

you can also do some general recommendations as well Cheers!

The Prism is ok, but you’ll get lower noise and temps with an aftermarket cooler. The Dark Rock might be a little overkill but will do a great job. If you want something in between, the Scythe Mugen 5 or Thermalright Macho are a couple of the usual suspects.

I may do slight overclocking, but nothing too extreme

okay I changed Abit of stuff on you if your okay with changes to the build but if not the stock cooler would be fine , if your gaming this is a good build but if for more video editing over gaming go 2700x the components are based off a YouTube named bitwit who just released a video on a build around this price so I made a list of it
