Ryzen 9 5950x upgrade from Ryzen 9 3900x cooler thoughts/suggestions

Greetings!  This is my first super duty high end processor and want to be sure she stays cool. I plan to use Thermal Grizzly Coductonaut for the thermal compound. I used their Kryonaut on the 3900 which  kept it around 42-45* C with the air cooler that came with it so am confident the Conducto will do well on the high end CPU. My greatest concern is finding a good water cooler for the 5950. I’ve a Thermaltake View 71 case which is brilliant. Was considering one of their coolers for the CPU. Thought our suggestions?  Thank you

The Ryzen 9 5950X is rated at a TDP of 105 Watts and AMD recommends a AIO CPU Cooler.

Here is AMD Recommended CPU Coolers for Ryzen 120 watts or lower TDP rated processors: https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/cpu-cooler-solution

 

Thank you. I missed this page when going over AMD’s site. 🤦🏻‍

I am using Corsair's H150i 360mm Elite Cappelix AIO for my 5950X.  FWIW.

Hot do you like it?  What temps under heavy use?

I don't actually have any software tracking those stats, but I can confirm that in this last month, while it was still reaching 95° Outside, and having no AC Inside the house, I was able to keep my room under 88° while playing Starfield for 3 1/2 hours and doing some intense combat.  *I* had to pause to catch my breath and also to get a cold drink before the computer showed any signs of slowing down.
