I decided to ditch my 11 years old 2600k intel system and build a new AMD.

I got everything either @ MSRP or below MSRP.

AMD Ryzen 5800x 5Ghz PBO FCLK @ 1900Mhz
G.Skill Tydentz RGB 32GB (16GB x 2) @ 16-19-19-36 3800mhz
Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite
Asus TUF OC RX 6800 XT @ 2550Mhz core, 2150mhz memory
Samsung 980 Pro 500GB M.2 NVME
Micron 2TB SSD SATA
Corsair RM850x PSU
Corsair H100i Elite Capellix water cooler Push and Pull
Corsair 4000D Airflow Case
Corsair ML120 Case fan x 6 (2 for push and pull of radiator)

oh, sorry. I forgot to post the question.

Is a 360 AIO better then 240 with PUSH and PULL?

yes, a fair bit. push/pull only gets you 3-4c tops. BUT if you dont have the room, a 280mm is much closer to a 360 in performance, like 80something%+, i cant remember the numbers right now...
edit: about 90%

Your temps aren't terrible. I don't know that you HAVE to get a 360mm rad. It seems like what you have works fine.

Thanks. I thought my temp is on the high side. If that is the case I will keep current set up. I was going to exchange a 360 AIO since I still have about 5 days left for return and exchange.

73c? its alright, within spec. a 360 would lower it to the mid+ 60s probably. if youre happy, leave it.

Nice setup. I was running something similar with a medium aio + push/pull config inside a similar case (the rgb model) and had similar temps.

AMD is of the opinion 90-95C is a normal full load operating temp. For comparison I'm air cooling a 5900x in a sff case. Beating up on it with linpack I hit 90.4C as my peak. Timespy gets me a peak of about 81C. 78C is very far from the edge.
