280mm or 360mm AIO

 Share

My trusted Corsair H105 did really well at keeping my CPU nice and cool and even earlier this year when I upgraded my i7 5820k to i7 8700k. However it kinda kicked the bucket when the pump died. Heard it grind then stop working. I installed a Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 to try “air cooling” but i’m finding it much running hotter than what the Corsair was.

 

Currently I’m running a MSI DUKE 1080ti with an overclocked i7 8700k 5Ghz at 1.32V which I believe runs hotter than my previous setup, i7 5820k OC to 4.7Ghz 1.28V and a MSI 1050ti. With temps in my apartment getting well above 30 degrees C, I’m going to purchase another AIO and since I’m on a really tight budget had picked these 2, Fractal 360mm and  Deepcool 280mm. Cost is in Australian $

 

I looked up kraken x62 & x72 and they are just a too pricey for my budget. At least another $100AU

 

Would i I be better with 360mm or 280mm?

I'd go 360 just because it's cheaper and I myself don't really care about RGB effects

The 280mm rad should cool better than the 360mm if all things were equal. Additionally, it should be quieter due to running at lower RPMs.

I was leaning towards the 280 just thought I’d ask if there was any other opinions. May even watercool the Duke as well just trying to find an affordable way to do it.
