Best AIO cooler for 2700x?

So my current build is a 2700x and a RTX 2070 and I mainly use it for game development, video editing and sometimes gaming. Because I make extremely high detail scenes when my systems fans start to speed up and temps rise (I use the Wraith Prism atm). Is it worth getting a AIO cooler and if so whats a good reccomdation? Ive heard the Kraken x72 is quite good.

If you're not overclocking, the X72 is overkill. It is an excellent cooler, much better than most other 360mm AIOs on the market (based on my personal experience with cooling the 9900k @ 5.1GHz). In any case, it will be pretty quiet.

Or actually, if you are still using the S340 Elite, it won't fit. You'll have to opt for the X62 or X52, both of which are perfectly fine and comparable to the X72 by 3-5C.
