ryzen 9 5950x cooling requirement

I'm planning to get a Ryzen pc build from a company called PC Specialist, with and was wondering if the corsair hydro series h115i platinum aio cooler can keep the Ryzen 9 5950X cool at full load?   

I will be using  a coolermaster h500m pc case and have the radiator/fan installed in the separate top compartment of the pc case.

Re: ryzen 9 5950x cooling requirement

As it's an unreleased processor, nobody knows exactly how well any cooler performs with it, but since it is a 16C/32T processor with a 105w TDP like the 3950X, we can assume that a 280mm liquid cooler, like the H115i, will be the minimum required, with a 360mm cooler recommended.

I agree with black_zion, and am planning to get a 360mm AIO for a 5950x soon.

But where is AMD recommending an AIO for it? A year ago they did at a now dead link named
https://www.amd.com/en/processors/3950x-thermal-solutions
but now all I see is https://www.amd.com/en/processors/ryzen-thermal-solutions which included air coolers.

the AMD wraith prism RGB can handle the thermal load fine

I use MX-4 which seems to last longer than the pad AMD provides
