    Hello all,

    I was just wondering what everyone’s thoughts were as to what the very best AIO is in terms of performance. I am planning a new build with an i9-9900K inside the Meshify S2 and would like the very best cooling possible for the CPU which I believe can get quite hot when overclocked to 5Ghz.

    Thanks!

    I'm using a Corsair 150 Pro RGB, temps can still get to high 60's although i have it set to quiet all the time. Also my 9900k is running at a steady 4.8ghz.

    My new Kraken Z63 is keeping my overclocked i9 in check. I’ve had loads of AIO’s over the years and they’re all mostly in tolerance of each other for their respective sizes. It’s more down to personal preference.

    my i9 is the later revision too.

    Silent Loop 360 with 3 high speed silent wings 3's barely holds on with my 9900k at 5Ghz, temps regularly hit mid 80's under load and you can forget about avx. Instant thermal shut down on pot small ffts.

    Going to be doing a custom loop as soon as funds allow

    That doesnt sound right at all. My 280 AIO keeps my i9 in check at 5Ghz.

    Might just be my chip but short of delidding and lapping it I can't be sure. Have tried reseating the cooler etc to no avail.
