Question Should I get an AiO for a Ryzen 3300x

Hi so I'm planning to make a PC with a AMD Ryzen 3300x. I can't get a Ryzen 5 3600 or it'll ruin my budget. So I just wanted to know if I should stick with the AMD Ryzen Wraith Cooler or get an AiO.

thanks
 
Why an AIO? Unless going for a 280/360mm you can usually get a better air cooler for the same or less money. AIO does not always mean better cooling so we need to which cooler you are looking at. The 3300x is not a high power cpu so doesn’t need high end cooling.

When you're buying a 3300X you're low on budget. If you have enough money to spend on AIO then you may as well get a better CPU first. 3300x runs hot but with good air flow in your case you shouldn't go above 75 on load.
