hey folks any pros out there than can help me with this, is the seasonic m12-ii evo (750watt) still a good PSU for an i9 9900k + rtx 2070 and is the Kraken x52 enough to cool an i9 9900k.
 
I can not give you a definite answer on the Kraken x52 as its max cooling TDP numbers are not published by the manufacturer. As for the M12-II EVO I can say that it is still a decent power supply. If you are willing to spend more there are more advanced designs with better compatibility with advanced sleep states available, higher efficiency and more safety features. That being said the M12-II EVO is a good value for what you pay. I use the Seasonic S12-II EVO 520W which is basically the same power supply with fixed cables and have had no issues powering both my i5-2500k system and my AMD Ryzen R5-1600 @ 3.875GHz.

oh thanks duly noted. i wanted to go for the focus series but they arent readily available where i live. i was just worried since this PSU was released around 2013 i think.
 
You may or may not have issues with certain sleep states with the M12-II EVO with newer CPU's - if needed you can disable sleep states in Windows or UEFI BIOS for compatibility issues that may come up.
 
You may also want to look into the higher end large air coolers as well from Noctua and Be Quiet to name a couple as then tend to have equivalent cooling capability to an AIO system with better warranties and reliability.
