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.

You can literally blow over a 1300X with a small desk fan and cool it effectively enough joke/sarcasm.

But seriously, as everyone else has said, it's ridiculous to pair such a cheap CPU with an expensive cooler that won't get anymore out of it because you're going to reach the 1300X's limits long before a super expensive cooler of any sort is going to be needed to cool it.

So, the best AIO for a 1300X? One of these: https://pcpartpicker.com/products/compare/GGGj4D,TDdFf7,FTDJ7P/

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