Will a 240mm AIO be enough for a 5900X?

I'm planning on getting a 5900X on release date, i was just wondering if there has been anything about what sort of cooling will be required? 

 

I was hoping on using a Corsair Hydro 100i RGB Platinum SE 240mm, Would something like that be good enough? 

 

I don't plan on overclocking at all.

 

Thanks

Short answer: Yes.

 

If 5900X follows the same TDP and power limit as 3900x. It draws only 142w max with default settings.

Yes ,but

 

You can get an arctic liquid freezer II 280mm for cheaper and it will perform much better at a lower noise. 

 

I think the ek aio 360mm is cheaper too. Will also preform better than the corsair aio

only issue is i have a Corsair 4000 airflow case, so i can't fit the 360mm unless i have the tubes at the top, this is a bad idea right? Also i think anything larger than 240mm will hit the ram

What if OP already has the Corsair Hydro 100i?

I don't actually have a cooler yet so open to suggestions, I have a Corsair 4000d airflow case which is white though so would ideally like a white cooler.

well the aio you picked will probably be the best. plus the rgb eco system from corsair is the best.
