240 vs 280 AIO

What is the actual difference in performance between 240mmvs280mm aio rads? I'll probably have my delidded 7700k overclocked to 1.3-1.35v. I have a kraken x52(240mm) and a krakenx62(280mm), the x52 fits my current setup better but I'd be willing to move a few things around and buy bigger fans if needed for the x62. What kind of differences would I see if I were to test them both? I would test myself but the CPU hasn't arrived yet and I need to return one soon. Thanks for any info!

  1. The CPU has not arrived yet, and you're worrying about the specific voltage after you delid it?

    All things being equal, a 280mm would give better cooling than a 240mm.
    How much better? Impossible to say. Too many other variables.

    Well if people who have tried 240mm vs 280mm aio's in the same build it would give a pretty clear idea. And I mentioned the voltage because I think it's one of the more important variables, not worried about it. Just saying I plan to run it at 1.3-1.35 consistently
