On my gaming rig I went with Cooler Masters Sub Zero ML360 on my 11700k and its awesome. On my workstation (a 12700k), I just switched from Noctua U12A to a Cooler Master ML280 AiO. It performs a bit better and its easier to work on. My router is running the stock Intel heatsink on a 6100. My daughters rig has a Cooler Master Hyper212EVO on her 9700k. Man, I am starting to see a pattern here...
