Hey everybody. I recently bought a DeepCool LS520 240mm AIO for about $90 to cool an i7-13700k. I decided to go for a different case than I originally planned that can fit a 360mm radiator at the top of the case so I have been looking into 360mm radiators with the possiblity of returning the DeepCool. The Corsair H150i Elite Capellix looks like a good one, especially since I can get it here before Christmas, but it costs about $190 dollars.
I'm new to overclocking and cooling in general and am unsure if the extra $100 is worth it. What kind of performance benefits could I get from the Corsair AIO vs the DeepCool AIO? I would like the CPU to work well and be able to run modern games and programs for the next 6 or 7 years. Would better cooling make the CPU last longer as well as allow the CPU to perform well for the next 6 or 7 years? What are the the performance benefits of overclocking? Does overclocking the CPU void any warrenties?
Thanks!

The benefits are all core workloads. That's it.

What are the the performance benefits of overclocking?
You missed out on that like a few generations back, when all applications benefited. Coffee Lake was the last gen that worked like that, I think.
Now it's sacrificial: lose performance in some apps and gain in others.
