if your CPU is Boss, gotta give it the Sauce

Watercool for FlexFactor™. 

 

otherwise 105W TDP is probably fine on air. 

back in the ol' Vashira days we tried to air cool 220W TDP CPUs bro. it was lit. not in a good way. 220W needs liquid, 105W does not.

Only 360mm AIOs are better. But there are other top air coolers than just D15.

Generally 280mm or bigger AIOs   beat D15.

But for that chip, D15 is enough

280mm isn't enough to be better overall value. The performance difference is only few degree if even that. Only actual big AIOs or custom loops are that much better in pure performance.
