Hi all.
I'm about to buy 10900K and i want an AIO. The problem is that i can't decide between 280 ot 360 rad.

Is the performance difference big ? And does the 280 AIO enough for the 10900k ?

I have ordered Alphacool Eisbear 360 (not the LT model). I'll mount it in front of the case because It's for my GF and this is BeQuiet Base 500 is one from the 2 cases that she liked.

280mm is fine for stock operation.
If you intend to try and push this cpu with its already limited OC headroom, pass on 280mm and 360mm low noise models.
Be aware that the airflow through this chassis is strained by design. Do not expect extraordinary thermals, even with the 360mm hybrid cooler.
Yes I see that. But she is not going to overclock the CPU for now (by she I mean, I'm not going to clock it)
But for normal use the case will be ok.
Thanks a lot to all of you. I'm going for the 360 AIO front mounted.
