Why not get a 240mm AIO, strap it to the front with the fans set to intake? What sort of a budget do you have to work with, preferred site for purchase and where are you located?
becuse i cant fit a 240mm aio. Only a120mm . Becuse if i added a 240mm then 2 case fans would be gone and my case dont have the best airflow. + i never had a aio before so i wouldnt know how to put it in. No budget limit exacetly but lets say 200$ And its local shop norway

The only reason you can't get a 240mm AIO in the front would be if you had a long graphics card, which isn't known to us at the start of this thread. I've built inside the case for a client whereby I had to downsize the build while maintaining the innards of the previous build. Here's an album to it, and yes it does have good airflow.

The Ryzen 7 5700X is a 65W chip, pretty easy to keep cool. I personally prefer air cooling (lasts far longer and easier to maintain) and would only seriously consider AIO water cooling for chips 125W and above. As long as you have decent airflow thru your case, and the P300 has decent fan mounts, you should be fine. As for noise, make sure you have a motherboard with fan profiles (or seperate fan controller). For example, I currently have a Ryzen 3 3300X (65W, PBO enabled) with an old Thermalright HR-O1 Plus with a 120mm fan clipped on. Fan stays at 40% (677 rpm) for 50C and under and up to 50% (846 rpm) up to 70C. Under CPU stress test, it plateaus at 71C. The same chip, with a Corsair 115i AIO, plateaued at 72C. Roughly the same. Although I have a pretty beefy NZXT case -- 6 120mm fans (3 front and 3 top), and a 140mm at the rear -- all mostly running 30-40%. Fans are whisper like audible, but is not unpleasant or distracting, though do intrude above 50%. As for a recommendation, if I were to buy a new air cooler -- would get the Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 SE. Is inexpensive and a top performer.
