AOA,
I want to buy a decent 360mm AIO, I'm deciding between Cooler Master ML360R RGB and Corsair H150i PRO. I'm currently running i7 9700K planning to upgrade to i9 9900KS (new version of i9 9900K).
Which cooler I consider buying because price wise corsair is a bit expensive and also the performance of ML360R is quite impressive. I need a future proof cooler which can cool my i9 9900KS at respectable temps.
Thanks
Syed Tayyab Bukhari

Running the h115i on a 9700k myself. Temps have been decent. H150i should work just fine with a 9900kf. I'd suggest to go with the h115 version. You won't see a massive difference in temps.

BTW curious why are you upgrading?

Thanks for the response hamza4best, Bro I need a powerful processor which can give me good performance in gaming as well as rendering and other programs, that's why I switched from i7 9700K to i9 9900K. I bought Corsair H150i which was only available at that time because I was looking for a good 360 aio, temps are very decent and I'm quite satisfied from H150i performance...
Previously I had the Cooler Master ML240R, which was cooling my 9700k and have to say it was doing its job pretty damn well, 73c in Cinebench and below 60 in gaming but after 1 week the RGB controller stopped working and I have to return as it was in warranty.

When it comes to 360 AIO CPU coolers I never thought anything can beat NZXT Kraken X72 around the price tag but then the performance of ML360R was reviewed by many PC experts. Pretty much everyone was amazed by the cooling capacity of this cooler. One point is that it comes with large size architecture (as compared to other coolers in this price tag) so before going to chose it just keep that in mind.

Now when I see Corsair H150i Pro, the cooler doesn't fall into the price range same as ML360R. Maybe if we talk about comparing H100i with MLR360 then it makes sense and we can easily have a winner which will be MLR360. Still H50i is definitely an upgrade than MLR360 but performance wise it doesn't seems to justify its price tag. Its reviewed that H150i doesn't even perform up to the mark than most of 240mm coolers.

Hence I will suggest to ignore Corsair H150i and choose Cooler Master ML360R or if you want my suggestion you can also go for NZXT Kraken X72 but it will cost a little more than ML360R. Performance wise X72 and ML360R are somewhat same. But considering the price-performance ratio ML360R is the best option for you.

Thanks for the reply Majawar but its kinda late already bought the H150i and I'm quite satisfied with its performance. I was also looking for ML360R but it wasn't available at that time so I decided to go for corsair, I had some experience with CoolerMaster before and cooling wise the ML240R no issue, right after one week the pump was making strange noises and the ARGB Controller died, have to return it as it was still in warranty.I know Kraken is quite good but it was out of my price range.
I saw a detailed review of Kraken x72, according to Gamers Nexus (YouTube Tech Channel) they all are same. Ambient temperature matters the most in my opinion.
Kraken and Corsair share the same pump manufacturer ASETEK.
