Hi everyone, I'm thinking about getting a AIO cooler to cool this 9900k. I currently have the mugen 5 (air cooler). The fan went oout last week and I had a spare fan (not the same kind as the original) its a faster fan (maybe 200rpm) than the original. Here is the situation. I am playing some newer games that are much more cpu demanding so my temps are higher (85c-87c) than the past. So I thought about a aio cooler. I have been looking at 3 coolers and have questions and need some expert advise on them. 1st, is the artic freezer (liquid freezer 2 360mm aio). I have read some reviews and for the most part they are fairly good. It has some pros and cons. https://www2.arctic.ac/liquidfreezer2/ Pros, cheap price $99.00 long tubes thick rad. cons, the fan wires are embedded into the tubes for a nicer look, but I guess if a fan were to go out I could not replace it and would have to RMA it. 2nd is a corsair aio. Looking at the 240, 280 and 360. https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Liquid-Cooling/c/Cor_Products_Cooling pros, name brand thats been around. quality. cons, Not cheap. tubes a little shorter. 3rd EK aio. Saw the review in the news section. As far as the pros and cons , its a mixed bag. Saw some reviews where they said EK tried the aio coolers in the past, but had issues like leaks and bad pumps. So what do you guys think? Do you have a aio thats not listed thats a better choice? On the corsair coolers some use icu software. Could I use it on my MB header instead? I usually use artic silver thermal paste, but have read there is better.
