Hi,

I am rebuilding a computer and would like to solicit opinions on the optimal PSU/ AIO cooling configuration.

My system specs are as follows:
  • Case: Lian-Li Q58 (Mini-ITX)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 10700K @ 3.80GHz
  • RAM: 32.0GB Dual-Channel DDR4 @ 1066MHz (15-15-15-36)
  • MOBO: GIGABYTE Z490I AORUS Ultra
  • Graphics: 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER (Asus ROG Strix)
  • Storage: 931GB NVMe Samsung SSD 970
The case allows for the following two configurations:
  1. SFX PSU + either 280, 240, or 120mm AIO
  2. ATX PSU + 120mm AIO
I currently own a 650W SFX PSU (NZXT NP-S650M; two years old). I am considering a 750W or 850W PSU to help future proof. For example, I am considering a 850W ATX PSU (Corsair RMx) + 120mm AIO (NZXT Kraken). I am curious, however, whether it may be better to get an SFX and larger cooling.

I am not overclocking, and I put a premium on noise reduction.

Many thanks.

There's multiple SFX 850w versions, like the CM V850, Evga SuperNOVA GM 850, SuperFlower Leadex III 850 etc.

With a 10700k you'd be far better off keeping a 240mm/280mm aio than dropping your cooling to 120mm 140w levels as your cpu will easily hit 200w+ with turbo enabled.
