What is the best AiO cooler?

For the CPU?

I currently have NOCTUA NH-D15S but I am horribly disappointed with the noise level.

Also, it seems that some sort of hybrid GPU is the way to go if I want a below-30dB PC.

What do you suggest for placing radiators for the CPU/GPU coolers; top, front, bottom?

I do no, but take a look on Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme (I warn about its pump anyway).

Add a second fan and drop your rpms below 600-800rpms, if you cant cool the CPU like that, then go custom water loop.

very unlikely, but who knows.

I dont like any, but if i ever were to go with one, i would probably go with SPCR NZXT Kraken X61 28cm Liquid Cooler, at least has a silver award, so might be decent.
