Are there any AIO watercoolers that would fit on the existing bracket for the i7-8700(non-K) in an R7? I didn’t spring for it because I didn’t think I’d need it and air cooling has worked fine but the chip is running hot now that I’ve gotten into VR. I plan on building my own Pc next year seeing as the bios in the R7s won’t be updated to allow newer CPUs but I’d like to at least toss in the a water cooler as a hold over until then because the heat is throttling performance at this point but I don’t want to have to take out all the parts and remove the motherboard to put in a new bracket if I can avoid it because it’s for a system I’m planning on replacing in half a year

Awesome, thanks for the suggestions! I’m guessing that fan has to go on the radiator because the one that comes with it doesn’t work with the R7 case?
