Is a 120mm AIO enough?

Hey,

I'm looking at getting and i7 6700k, and i am going to overclock it to 4.4 GHz. I was looking at getting a corsair hydro h50 120mm rad cooler.

Would this be nough to cool this cpu?

Thanks

  1. It will enough just to cool and that's it , no overclocking.

  2. An air cooler is typically a better, more reliable option than a low end AIO that costs a similar amount. Something like an Cryorig H5 would cost similar to a Corsair H50 I believe, and perform better.

    That being said, I have a 6700K overclocked to 4.5 GHz and a basic CM 212 EVO is good enough. Although the fans may get a little louder than some people would prefer.

  3. A Cryorig H7 is another great option , and will cool better than the H60:
