Best Liquid Cooler for Ryzen 3 1300X

Hello PCPartPicker users,

In your opinion, what is the best all in one liquid cooler for the Ryzen 3 1300x? I don't want to spend over $150. Thanks in advance ;)

None, it would be beyond stupid to spend more on the cooler than the CPU. Just buy a better CPU instead. A $150 cooler for a ~$100 CPU won't get you $250 in terms of performance.

Any cooler would do for that processor.

If you insist for an AIO (because it would look better inside the Case) get this one below.

Keep in mind though, noise levels would be higher than with air cooling.

Yeah, IDK! I don't think it's a practical move considering a $45 Scythe cooler would more more than enough for a Ryzen 3 1300x overclocked as high as you can get it.

+20 gets you a Ryzen 5 2600 which would do more (much more) for you than a Ryzen 3 1300x and a cooler like the x62.

Corsair H110i , not only good but uses the stock AM4 retention system
