I think all mainstream 360mm AIOs are rebranded Asetek, Corsair h150i Pro, Fractal S36, NZXT X72 are the ones I can think of. If I'm not missing anything, buy the one you like the most and replace the fans with something really extreme like blowie-matrons (isn't thtat what Linus keeps calling them?).

Speaking of GN, not much new has happened since this:

What always surprised me about that though is that the 280mm EVGA outperformed even 360mm rads. I have no issue getting a 280mm AIO if it performs better than a 360mm - have other reviews had the same results with it?

I think it's that for most people, having loud and fast fans on a 360mm just doesn't make sense. On a 280mm it may make more sense. I think the different fans are what makes the 280 perform better.

EDIT: Also the difference in radiator surface area isn't huge. A 240mm has 28800mm^2 of radiator area, a 280mm has 39200mm^2, but a 360 only has a 43200mm^2 area.

It could be something about the AIO itself that's better too.

Not if it's all rebranded asetek.
 

Only truly different thing that comes to mind is this:

the best pump that moves the most fluid at the fastest rate,

I think I saw a video with compelling evidence showing flow rate to be functionally insignificant, at least within normal parameters.

and the thickest radiator [....] and then slap high-airflow fans on it.

This makes sense yes.

Yeah that article is actually what I was thinking of when I mentioned GN, but it's just older now which is why I wanted a more current one.

 

What always surprised me about that though is that the 280mm EVGA outperformed even 360mm rads. I have no issue getting a 280mm AIO if it performs better than a 360mm - have other reviews had the same results with it?

Gamers Nexus did a review of the Corsair H115i Platinum Pro RGB (yeah, I know it's 280mm, not 360mm but it ain't Asetek either) a bit over a month ago which gives a good comparison across a range of CLC's normalised to 40dB. This gives a much fairer result when comparing how well the CLC's cool.
