you can still fit a 120mm AIO in the rear, get the H80i.

Other options Kraken X31,seidon 120XL or Nepton 120XL

Thanks, what's your thought on the Zalman reactor 3 max? I don't know much about it, I just like the way it looks.

Thanks again.

honestly no idea (didn't now about it), I check some benchmarks and the H80i performs a little better

in this one around 4 degrees
