is H100i Platinum good enough for 3900x?

Recommended Posts

Hello, so i wasnt sure what category this was supposed to be, but since my question was generally the aio, i figured this was fine. ANYHOW


So i have been looking at aio coolers for my 3900x and i know yes.... aios aint the most efficient thing blah blah blah. I dont like the idea of a huge block stuck on my motherboard protentially also blocking the ram. i also wanted rgb exhaust so i figured the h100i is good.. 


But will it cool the 3900x? im planning to render 1080p, 1440p or even 4k videos. Also streaming 1080p on the higher games and also just gaming at 4k or 1440p in general. Since ryzen is known for their "hardly overclocked" cpus, will it be ok or should i start looking at protentially 280mm or 360mm aio? (or even custom watercooling?)

it will be fine if you have good enough airflow. with decent airflow you can slightly oc your cpu

right. im choosing the corsair 465x case, even tho it has front glass panels it has great airflow coming in from the sides. im sticking to it's stock LL120 fans.

I'd opt for a 280mm AIO tbh
