I am building my second gaming pc and was wondering should I buy a 60 dollar water cooler so I can overclock to 4.2 GHz or use the stock fan to get to 3.8 GHz is water cooling a good idea or should I stock fan my ryzen 3.

Not an overclocker myself, but I would usually suggest to stick with your stock cooler first to see what kind of overclocking level you can get and temperature. I am assuming you are getting the 1300x. For 60 bucks more, why not decide on the 1500x

There is not a lot of data on i3 yet but Ryzen as a general has not had a lot of success with overclocking. Probably not going to get over 4.0GHz easily.

Avoid those 60$ water coolers like the plague!

reviews on the Ryzen 3 show that the stock cooler ism ore than enough for overclocking them to 4ghz.
