Hey guys, I'm in need with some info regarding which is the best 240mm AIO for a stock i9-9900k? I wanna know if the NZXT Kraken X53 240mm is better than the Corsair Hydro 100i RGB Platinum 240mm or vice versa or if you guys have any other suggestions that are better than these two, preferably within the £140 mark and not higher.

Thanks in advance :)

Either will do the job however I would suggest you choose a 280mm AIO or a 360mm version to keep that processor cool once you go into overclocking territory.
I most likely wont overclock as Im not experienced with that stuff and I did order a 280mm aio but found out that my mid tower case only fots 240mm at the top :/

They are the same. Both are high performance 240mm models, but neither will make a meaningful difference, because both are still inadequate for a 9900K, even at stock:

280mm or higher for that cpu.
Arctic Liquid Freezer 2
Alphacool Eisbaer
Cooler Master Masterliquid ML360R
Corsair H115i
NZXT Kraken X63/X73
Yeah I currently have the h115i in my room rn but it wont fit on the top of my case which is pretty upsetting, but i suppose I could just remove 2 of my 3 fans at the front and put the aio there if thatll be good? then put my 2 other fans on the top of my case idk

Agree, I would not be trying to run a 9900k on a 240mm. Time to upgrade the case.

Out of interest what motherboard do you have? There are plenty that support a 9900k but are a bad choice due to poor power delivery.
I have the ASUS rog strix z390-e motherboard, and yeah my case is fairly new ;( but i am planning on getting a better one in the future anyway so for time being my 280mm radiator can go on the front if thats good?

That would be a better idea than trying to run that cpu on a 240mm.
