Hello, I am wondering on buying the Kraken X62, but i don't know if it would handle a overclocked Ryzen 7 3700x 4.3-4.4 ghz thanks.

It could easily cool the 3700x, you could even go for a 240mm AIO. Ryzen 3000 runs pretty cool under load even overclocked.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

The 3700x is a 65-85w chip and sort of does it’s own overclocking anyway, so a hand overclock is not infrequently not particularly useful.  Even a 140mm rad is going to be more than enough. People very often don’t even put an aftermarket cooler on them at all and just use the stock cooler.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.
