My former cooler was a TT Water 3.0 240.
Not only I had an episode of air getting trapped in the pump, I don't know if there was something wrong with the mounting mechanism on it or just by project the Asetek design (using the default AM4 motherboard brackets) didn't get enough pressure.
My temps are actually better now. And dead silent.
Given Ryzen 7000s thermal density a larger cooler likely wouldn't do a ton better regardless. Very nice looking cooler and the fans seem more than adequate quality wise. I still prefer AIO for my primary pc but do like the simplicity of an air cooler and the nearly 0 risk for failure. Temp readout seems very accurate which is also nice.
