Hello, I am looking for some opinions on CPU coolers. I currently have a Corsair H60 (120mm) on my i5-8600k, OC to 4.8ghz at 1.27v. Idle temps sit around 45-50c and under load 70-75c.
I am considering upgrading for two reason, to drop my current temps and I have been considering the new Ryzen 9 3900x. I have a Best Buy credit card that screams 12 month interest free financing. lolz
Okay, lets get to the coolers, the reason we're here. I am going to be a Corsair fan boy here (get it, fan, because cooling), looking between the H100i RGB PLATINUM and H150i PRO RGB. Here is why I am torn, cooling performance of a 360mm or white with RGB. I want the cooling, hence the reason I am considering to upgrade, but I LOVE the white. Also, the white 240mm comes with LL120 fans which I have in my build.
I know when it comes to fashion vs function, to choose function... but white.
Has anyone had experience with both (radiator sizes)? Wondering if the extra surface area of the 360mm is noticeably better than a 240mm. Thanks in advice for any feedback!
