Looking to buy an AIO tomorrow. Which one is better? Looking to cool a 9700k no extreme overclock. Mostly be used for gaming. EVGA CLC 280mm or Corsair H115i PRO/RGB?

Thanks

Bunch on info comparing both of them in the video below. In short, they perform basically identically, as they both use the same pump. The one thing I am not sure about is the software comparison. Corsair's software is very mature and just works. NZXT's software is really bad. But I have never used EVGA's, so that may be something that sets them apart.

Well I got $203 store Credit from Newegg for a return so I ended up buying the EVGA CLC 280mm. Gets here Monday. First time using an AIO. Hope it works well.

Should work fine. Its based on Asetek CLC parts, should cool that CPU fine.

The EVGA cooler can get a little loud at max rpms. It's a great CLC though, and it beats a lot of 360mm units. It's cheap(ish) too.
