They can be used with just about any cpu socket (besides something large like TRX40 for Threadrippers), and can cool most CPUs brilliantly. They're also pretty quiet all things considered, and very sleek for the money. Put them on a lower clocked CPU and you won't hear them at all (but for a slight engine-esque purr that's quite pleasing).
Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler (NH-D15) - PCPartPicker
Didn't notice noise level increase after going from single to 2 larger CPU fans. So yeah, do yourself a favour and get a real CPU cooler instead of the stock cooler if you want to care about your CPU. This is an investment to keep your CPU running at its best shape, and this cooler certainly doesn't disappoint!
Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo 43.1 CFM CPU Cooler - PCPartPicker
The cooler its self is superb for its size. It keeps my I5-8400 below 50 degrees under load whilst staying very quiet. A major issue that I have had with this CPU cooler though has been mostly Intel's fault. The mounting solution for LGA 115x seems to be designed with the idea that once the cooler is down, it staying down.
