Cooling questions for 10700K

can you not refuse shipment of the case as its being delivered? if not a 240mm aio is better than nothing but you wont be overclocking much and the airflow in that case is suboptimal for 400-500w of parts

Hi everyone, 

 

I am building my first PC and have already ordered all the parts. While browsing, I recently discovered that the case I chose and the 360mm radiator don’t work together. My case is an NZXT H510 and CPU is an i7 10700K cooled by a 360mm AIO cooler. None of the parts have arrived and now I’m confused what I should make a change in, case or cooler. I initially wanted to change cooler but now I’m wondering if a 240mm AIO cooler will suffice for the 10700K.
 

Please advise soon, I will have to cancel shipping and replace an item. (Case has no return options and it arrives in 2 days) also in other components I have 2 sticks of ram, along with a Zotac 3 fan 2080 super (if these components will affect the cooling performance and airflow).

 

Thanks a lot,

Nishad

Change your case to a more airflow orientated case like a meshify c, p400a, bequite 500 dx, and etc. Also a 360mm aio is overkill a 240/80 mm aio will keep your cpu plenty kill.
