AIO recommendation

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am new to AIOs and I am spoilt for choices since there are many out there in the market.

Any recommendations for the most effective cooling with maybe rgb as well just for the aesthetics.I prefer more recent products, as in recently launched but if none of them are really decent in terms of performance to price point,I don’t really mind others.

My case: Fractal Design R6

Motherboard: Msi gaming pro Carbon B450 Ac

Cpu: ryzen 3700x

My Budget: $150-200usd

i was thinking about removing the pre applied thermal paste for Thermal grizzly pastes.Any recommendations for this as well?Thanks!

Anything by corsair is usually a solid bet. I haven't kept up with all their new models, last I knew they were like h110i or h100i, but corsair support and cost is usually a very compelling option. Not the cheapest, but corsair support I have found to be phenomenal over the years.

 

Also, no real need to change thermal paste. What they come with is totally fine.

the Corsair AIO's are pretty good with the fans that come with them as well

and they also have warranty if they do leak 

They will refund whatever is damaged by their AIO leaks ?

Value wise? Worth the penny or I should just get the old model?

I haven't really looked into them at all in years. I run a custom loop, and for all my friends I tell them to get hyper 212 evo's or noctuah heatsinks depending on their need/use case.

If you want the RGB, its a good deal. The ML140 RGB retail for about 70$ for a pair, the ML140 non RGB are 50$ for a a pair

I recommend, not getting an AIO. Buy a top of the line Air cooler, like the DRP4 or NH-D15 (can grab the black chromax version if u like)

 

Cooling performance is on par with 240/280mm AIO's.

It's good. If you're looking for a specific aesthetic, it's up to you how much that's worth. 

If you're just aiming for performance, the Freezer II 280 should be similar but cheaper: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/smDkcf/arctic-liquid-freezer-ii-280-728-cfm-liquid-cpu-cooler-acfre00066a
