PCGamesN was saying that the quietest AIO cooler is the Corsair H100i Pro RGB.

So I am thinking of buying it.

Is it powerful enough to cool down i9-7900X when the computer is in full use for hours?

That's total bull from PCGN. ANY cooler can be set to run quiet once you customize fan/pump curves yourself.

... doing what?

Without having to change anything in bios:
1)Games? Sure.
2)Browsing, MS Word, video editing? Sure.
3)Blender, Cinebench R23, OCCT small data set, and the like? Negative.

I'm currently using a 7820X direct die mounted with an Alphacool Eisbaer Aurora 360(fans replaced with Phanteks T30-120). I've also used a NH-D15S(2 fans) and Fractal Celsius+ S28 Dynamic on it.
With 1 & 2, I personally don't notice any difference between these 3 coolers. It's not until apps like Cinebench and OCCT that the coolers start to split off.

FYI: H100i Pro is about the same tier as the NH-D15.

As mentioned above, what usage scenario are you referring to? I have the same cooler in my ITX build with an AMD Ryzen setup. It's cooling a 5950X without issue with gaming, occasion Handbrake usage, and Windows general light usage tasks. This is within a tiny chassis. I'd tend to believe your cooling requirements would be in the ballpark, minus any OCing.

do you already have some X299 board to put it in? (Or perhaps a great combo deal on known good pair of components?)

7900X is not something typically on a 'must have ' list by today's standards despite having 10 cores/20 threads, as it certainly outperformed by any 5800X or the 12600K in pretty much all scenarios...; and certainly a 12100 or 12400F would outperform it in gaming , even with the 7900X OC'd , assuming you were adequately cooling it's OC'd 200+ watt thermals...

I run statistical packages (regressions, mathematical model computation) on 40GB data. I don't need to have a good graphic. I don't do graphic design or anything like that.

A review with many coolers to compare
https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/8857/corsair-h100i-pro-rgb-liquid-cpu-cooler-review/index.html#Test-System-Setup-Thermal-Tests-and-Noise-Results
seems to me that this aircooler does better when quieter and likely costing alot less,
https://pcpartpicker.com/product/B8rcCJ/thermalright-le-grand-macho-rt-736-cfm-cpu-cooler-le-grand-macho-rt
results are with a 6700K so might vary for the cpu you ask about, but not by that much i assume.

What case do you use? Might very well be other aio options with for example 2x140mm fans which could well be quieter.
