So I'm building a new pc with my old case, nzxt noctis 450(I would like to know if this case would suport a 240mm or 360mm radiator and where). Wan't to know if a air cooler will be enough or if I should go with liquid cooling.

I was thinking maybe COOLER MASTER MASTERAIR MA410M for air cooling. Is this good enough?

My build is
Case: NZXT noctis 450.
CPU Ryzen 9 5900x
Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E
RAM: G.Skill TridentZ RGB Series - 16 GB, 2 x 8 GB
SSD: ADATA XPG GAMMIX S50 1 TB - PCIE 4.0
GPU: RTX 3080 (When I can find one).
PSU: Seasonic focus gold (80 plus gold) 850fx
 
I cant get Noctua d15 where I live, What about this one: COOLER MASTER MASTERAIR MA410M ? (Not good enough?)
I personally am not a fan of Air coolers and it depends on what you want from your processor.
Do you eventually want to Overclock or not. If so then an Air cooler will not be sufficient under constant heavy load.

The Air cooler you propose has been reviewed here at Tom's for what it's worth.

imo Air coolers are big and ugly, Heavy on the MB and many impinge on the RAM sockets.
 
Hi Melvin :)

Your case supports a top mounted or front mounted 2x140 or 3x 120 rad.
A decent AIR cooler like the Noctua d15 would suffice (NO OVERCLOCKING)
For moderate Overclocking then a Corsair H100i AIO or equiv
I Recommend to mount a rear 140mm fan for case thruput.

I'm also interested with this CPU.

So what is the minimum brand/model (AIO) you can suggest for overclocked R9 5950x?
