so basically there will be no diff in thermal performance bet the kraken x72, the ryujin 360 and the aorus 360mm except if am gonna mess with the fans curve?
Correct.
You simply won't be able to 'soak' a 360mm AIO on a 3900X. They're good for up to 350w of waste heat. A 3900X doesn't come anywhere close to that, even in the worst case scenarios.
That just leaves the fans to make up the difference.
Too bad most manufacturers don't provide visual fan curves for their products; it's usually the specs for the fans at 100% operation.
CFM, static pressure, and noise level do not scale linearly, so you're left with 2nd guessing how a particular model will perform at X rpm.

You won't notice a difference between the 2, except if you choose to run the fans at max rpm - which few people ever do with these things.
