Out of the loop for a while (literally)
It's been about 4ish years since I last upgraded my PC and feel now is a good time to upgrade as I have a buyer for most of my old parts.
Currently, I have a 5930K on a MSI x99 Gaming 9 ACK that is cooled by a Swiftech H320x2 Prestige.
Well, I'm upgrading to a Ryzen 9 3900x + MSI MEG X570 ACE and am looking for a decent cooling solution outside of the Wraith cooler.
What do you guys suggest? I prefer to not get an AIO when there are EK/Swiftech CLC options that I feel perform better for roughly the same price, or slightly more. However, I would love to get back into a full loop, but don't want to spend over $300ish to do so. If you guys feel that going the AIO route over the Swiftech I have since the 3900x doesn't really overclock well, please explain and what cooler you'd suggest. I am open, but I've had great success with my Swiftech and you can definitely feel that it's much more premium than the other AIO solutions from Corsair etc.
What do you guys recommend? This will be going in a LianLI PC-011 Dynamic (Razer Edition) and I am just after my mast normal overclock on the CPU and aesthetics only. I'm not a huge benchmarker or anything.
