Ryzen 5 2600x w. h100i v2 VS. Ryzen 7 2700x w. stock cooler.

I am picking out parts for a PC and I wanted to know if an overclocked ryzen 5 2600x would be better than a ryzen 7 2700x with the stock cooler. I know that you can overclock the ryzen 7 2700x with the stock cooler but is it more worth it to get a ryzen 5 2600x with a h100i v2 since I can overclock it more.

If you can get the 2700x get it. The performance boost u will get on the 2600x from extra OC still won't outweigh the fact that the 7 2700x is 8 cores and the 5 2600x has 6. Unless you are a pro overclocker and plan to OC to like 1GHz above turbo, go with 7 2700x and wraith stock cooler.
That is a good idea thanks
Any particular reason why you aren't considering the 2700X and then liquid cooling not so later on?
