I'd like an AIO that can keep my 5600x (oc) cool.

Hello guys,

I'm pretty much finished with buying the components for my first Pc, just the CPU cooler is missing. 

I'd like an AIO that can keep my 5600x (oc) cool. I watched some videos regarding this topic and i want to choose between the Arctic Liquid Freezer ii 280, the Deepcool Castle 280ex or the Corsair iCUE H115i RGB XT (or some other 280mm Corsair AIO).

Now I'm not sure which one to buy. The Arctic one has a great performance but i really dislike the design of it.

I'm not sure about the Deepcools cooling performance because nearly every source of German forums and articles come to other conclusions in cooling and noise. Moreover I'm not sure how good of a company Deepcool is and how long-living their products are.

Corsairs AIO's have a pretty nice and minimalistic design but like Deepcools AIO I'm not sure about cooling performance and noise levels. 

So I'm looking for good cooling performance, moderate design and long-living AIO.

Would be great if you guys could help me in my buying decision or even recommend other aio's.

Sorry if the grammer is faulty English is not my mother tongue.

The 5600x isn't very hard to cool. What case are you using and why are you looking at these coolers in particular?

Where are you shopping / located?

I suspect that all of them will be more than enough.  You have a 65w chip, and those coolers can easily handle the bigger ryzen chips.  I would pick which ever looks best.

That said, if you really want to get the ABSOLUTE best performance, my understanding is that having good contact between the coldplate and the CPU lid / heatspreader is the most important factor, especially when comparing between AIO's with the same radiator size.  

The arctic has a 2 yr warranty, the deepcool a 3 yr warranty, and and the corsair has a nice 5 year warranty.  That doesn't necessarily mean one is more reliable than the other, but it's interesting. It's anyone's guess which one is actually the most reliable.

I'm using the Corsair 4000D Airflow case. I chose the Arctic one because of Gamers Nexus reviews on it and because its pretty cheap here in Germany (90€, 110$) in comparison to the Deepcool one (140€, 170$) and the Corsair one (135-150€, 165-183$). 

I found the Deepcool one on Youtube and found it very good looking and the Corsair ones were recommended by friends.

As you may noticed I'm from Germany.

I also thought about the warranty of the differnet coolers.

It's my first PC Build and I dont have any experience regarding oc or temps in general. So I wanted to take the safe way and take the best cooler. If you say I don't need the extremest cooling performance I think I will roll with the Deepcool or Corsair one.

Thanks :)

Any of the mentioned coolers would be plenty for cooling and arguably overkill. More cooling performance is good but the extra money could be put towards a future cpu upgrade for a more tangible performance difference. If you aren't oc'ing and just wanted a decent upgrade from the stock cooler, a Gammaxx GTE V2 or Fuma 2 would be ample for cooling:

Thank you guys for helping me choose.
