  1. A fully custom watercooling loop, that would be the best watercooling option. Is there more to this question?
  2. Yes, i agree. Something like a 10 core being clocked that high would require a cooling system more efficient then the arctic.
  3. I use Arctic Liquid Freezer 240, and I've had some very good results. Overclocked at 4.4ghz on a A10 7700k at 1.4V and I can't get my CPU past 50C on extreme IntelBurn tests, with Prime95.

    Its pretty cheap too, and they make a 360.

    I actually ended up buying this because it was the only FM2+ socket Water Cooler in the entire store, and it was the last one.

    I was looking for something in the box
    I'm not going to cool GPUs , so buil custom watersooling only for CPU is little too expensive
    I was counting on something like the box versions already assembled to use
    with maybe 3 fans instead of 2 (280)

    Yeah haha.
  10. Best answer
    Some of the EK AIO kits would work well for your needs. A fully custom loop would obviously be the better option, but......

  11. Predator would also be my recommendation...or Swiftech H220/H240.

    Swiftech 220X handles just over 200 watts at 10C delta, Predator 240 handles just over 300 watts at 10C delta.
