Hello everyone! Im in the process of building my first PC and I am looking for coolers to use with a Ryzen 9 5900X preferably an AIO, and one that can handle extreme overclocking, I currently have an EK-AIO 360 Basic on my list and I'm wondering if that is enough. thanks to everyone who reads this I hope everyone has a great day :3
How extreme overclocking are your referring too? What speeds are you going for when you overclock?
The faster you overclock your processor the stronger the CPU Cooler must be to maintain it from overheating.
You will definitely need a AIO CPU Cooler with a very high TDP ratings. Depending on how high of a speed you plan on overclocking.
The Ryzen 9 5900X itself has a fairly high TDP rating of 105 Watts with a maximum operating temperature of 90c.
Here are a couple of website that list the best Overclocking CPU Coolers if interested:
I would try and find a CPU Cooler with at least a 300 Watt TDP Ratings. I found a few of them in google.
I would look for a brand-name 360mm AIO cooler, or at least the largest radiator you can fit into your case. Your current selection satisfies that. Also consider having six fans mounted, in a push/pull configuration.
your current cooler is enough, there are better 360mm air coolers but the gain will be to small to justify the change.
I know I am late to the party, but your motherboard is more important than your cooler.
