    Strix LCII 240ARGB cooler with Asus TUF Gaming Z690-Plus

    Greetings. I am looking at a new build that I am helping someone with that will have an i7 or i9 Raptor Lake CPU. I realize an AIO would be preferred so was looking at all the options. The case will only support a 240mm or 280mm two fan CPU cooler.

    Looking at that particular motherboard for at least DDR5 compatablity, don't see the need for a Z790 MB.

    Anyway my question is on the Strix cooler. I cannot really find it showing up in any reviews or "best of" lists so was just curious how this stacks up to some of those that are listed as it relates to noise and cooling. I did find like one review that was a while ago.

    Not really looking to overclock, more of just keeping CPU cool under heavy gaming and use.

    Am okay going with another option but thought it would be "cool" to keep the build all ASUS, although the price is high. Others that show up are ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 240 A-RG (no RGB), NZXT Kraken X53, Corsair iCUE H100i Elite Capeelix for low noise.... I also would prefer to have the LG1700 come with the unit vs. having to hunt down a special separate order bracket.

    Thanks for the help! Been a while since looking at this stuff.
