I've bought an ASUS TUF x570 board already, and my Corsair Vengence RAM (32GB 3200Mhz). I am going to grab an NZXT h510 Elite case as well. Which cooler would be better? I can't find any comparisons of the 2 in the title. If there's no real difference in performance between the 2, which would you choose and why?

I'm not 100% which CPU yet. It'll be the new Ryzen 5000, but I don't know yet if i'm going to splurge on the high end when I know it's way overkill for me.
The h100i Elite and the Kraken x63 are both $150 right now on Best Buy, that's really why I was asking.

I'm going to look into the Arctic IIs you just mentioned though. Thank you.

I checked out the Arctic II 280 review you linked. With the x63 being only like, 3-5c worse, and me not planning on pushing anything to the point that 3-5c will matter, I wanna stick to the RGB of either the h100i or the x63. it does seem the x63 (based on the video) is better, based on the few things Steve from GN mentioned. Thanks for linking that vid. Was a huge help deciding. I'll get the x63.
