  1. No, the i5-4690k won't fit in another socket. If you want more performance, the money is better put towards upgrading to a newer platform altogether.
  2. Make sure the cooler is being tightened gradually instead of one side before the other. What's the thermal paste spread look like when removing the cooler?
  3. The EKWB D-RGB would be fine if that's the aesthetic you're going for. Any of the coolers you mentioned would be plenty for cooling.
  4. What cpu are you cooling and what features are you looking for?
  5. IS-47K: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/FQbCmG/id-cooling-is-47k-443-cfm-cpu-cooler-is-47k If you have more clearance available, the Big Shuriken 3 is also good: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/DKfhP6/scythe-big-shuriken-3-5079-cfm-cpu-cooler-scbsk-3000
  6. What cpu and ram are you using? Where are you shopping / located? Budget?
  7. Not sure which cooler you're referring to. Did you mean the Hyper 212 RGB BE?
  8. A better cooler wouldn't hurt but the NH-L9i shouldn't have any issues fitting. The cooler website doesn't list any potential issues on this motherboard and there aren't any issues mentioned here with the same combination: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/yf6scf If you really want to replace the cooler anyway, some decent options include: Gammaxx 400: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/w3c48d/deepcool-gammaxx-400-blue-7434-cfm-cpu-cooler-deepcool-gammaxx-400-blue SE-224-XT Basic: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/VTqBD3/id-cooling-se-224-xt-basic-7616-cfm-cpu-cooler-se-224-xt-basic
  9. Cinebench scores are a good way to tell if the cpu is legit. Which fan? How's it misaligned?
  10. That's probably because of the dense layout on an itx board. The cutout is mainly fit for atx boards.
  11. A Gammaxx 400 should be fine. https://it.pcpartpicker.com/product/hJFPxr/deepcool-cpu-cooler-gammaxx400 The similar Hyper 212 Evo has no issues clearing the ram slots on the similar Asus P9X79 mentioned. https://it.pcpartpicker.com/b/kcRBD3
  12. Some thermal paste is abrasive. It's probably fine. Thermal paste should fill the gaps.
