    Wondering if that 360 version would perform better or worse than 280 version?

    Should be better as both are 38mm thick.

    Should be better, more dissipation space.

    I'm thinking about doing another platform with Ryzen, but not 3950X as it's hard to get + not too popular among the daily users (price).

    The big answer here is - pls check the last H100i RGB Pro XT review.

    There you can compare them. Corsair review has been completed after the Arctic one.

    I have the 360mm version and I am so impressed. Keeps my overclocked 8700K at 4.9GHz very cool even under max load with P95 small FFT's...for the price it is one of the best if not the best...be warned the radiator is a lot thicker than other AIO's so double check your measurements in your case.

    I'd like to add that my 360 version of this cooler has no issues keeping my 9900KS cool at all times :)
    I'm very pleased with this cooler so far.

    Adding that I have the exact same model and handles my 3900X on a both an X570 Aorus Master and MSI X570 Unify with no issues whatsoever.
