Hey everyone

 

So I am going no buy an air cooler if I decide to buy an I9 9900K, and I want to know which air cooler is good.

I am considering Dark Rock PRO 4, is it a good choice?

 

Thanks in advance,

Shinion

Why not go with a 9700k or 9600k? The 9900k is way over priced right now and I doubt it's a necessity. 

 

If you are certain than the Dark Rock Pro4 should get the job done, but that chip runs hot. 

The Noctua NH-D15 is also very good. I'd honestly consider a high end AIO for the 9900k. A 280mm AIO, 360 if your case allows it.

DRP4 is a great cooler. Assuming you want to OC, look at that one and the D15

For 9900k, DRP4 would be good. But if you plan on doing high overclocking, I would even go 360mm push-pull AIO.

My dad might pay some of the prices for the chip, so I want one that is good for what I am doing
