240mm or 280mm for AMD R5 3600X

Go to solution Solved by OU812,

Not really. The 3600x doesn't really throw out much heat.

Hi, I just purchased an AMD R5 3600X.   The stock fan is just to loud for me.   I really like the NZXT AIOs in my previous builds.   I'm looking at the 240MM X52 or the 280MM X63.   I would prefer to use the X52 because it'll be easier to fit in my case, but I could get the X63 to work.   Will there a significant difference in thermals and noise for a 3600X between the two models?   I don't plan to overclock the CPU much.   Thanks for any advice.
