Temperature Margins for 0.1GHZ on the 8600k

Guest
 Share

Assuming you don't win or lose the silicon lottery (5.0ghz before temps and voltages go too high for a 240mm AIO), which coolers can cool the 8600k to only 4.8ghz, only 4.9ghz, and 5.0ghz?

Basically any decent air cooler or AIO will handle the 8600K.

 

If you're shooting for 5Ghz, I would look at a high end air cooler or a higher end, larger AIO.

Sorry, but I don't have the point of reference for "decent".

BeQuiet! Dark Rock/Dark Rock Pro series, the more expensive Noctua coolers, most expensive Cryorig for air coolers.

 

For AIOs, you want a lot of radiator surface area, such as a 280mm or 360mm radiator. I'd recommend Corsair's AIOs personally, as they seem to be the best around.

I don't really think brand matters in AIOs. Asetek is the OEM of almost all AIOs currently on the market, with the same design, the only difference being surface area. But feel free to correct me.

NZXT Kraken X62 coolers have a higher failure rate, despite being essentially the same hardware as found in Corsair's AIOs.

 

I don't know much about Thermaltake or Cooler Master AIOs, but I've found Corsair to largely be the best and most reliable.

honestly still the same bunch of coolers :)

 

 

tier 5 is just enough, I'd aim for tier 4 or better to lower noise levels.

Sorry, but I'm not going to trust a list that puts the Scythe Mugen 5 in tier 3 and the Macho Direct / Windale 6 2 tiers below even though they're all within a single degree of each other.

i think i was using 135w on a 5.1 oc? somewhere around there, so check the tdp rating on the coolers.

You could ask why @WoodenMarker put them that way, not like moderators here refuse to communicate of anything

 

I myself just buy 140mm dual towers because my case can hold them :P

The tiers aren't determined by a specific temperature difference. It's not like 1c difference means the same performance gap in all situations. The goal is to determine the better cooler when performance otherwise seems similar. This means looking for more differences than similarities. The result is a list where there shouldn't be a cooler that sticks out as a much better or worse performer compared to coolers of the same tier because they're similar. 

 

Depending on what your criteria is, the Mugen 5, Macho Direct, and Windale can all be similar. But if you had to pick the best of the 3? Which would it be?

Real life results for cooling are too complicated to practically predict and calculate. Everyone who has a job related to cooling just overcompensates for what's roughly expected instead of aiming for exactly what's necessary. The best you can get is an educated guess.

 

You can see some examples of oc'ed 8600k's here: https://pcpartpicker.com/builds/by_part/Mr2rxr#C=1

The jigahertz questions is irrelevant. It really is. Clocks don't raise temps, not in same multitude as voltages do. So when looking for  cooler, you don't look for 100MHz changes. You look at mild OC (100-300MHz above stock/turbo), average (300-700MHz above stock/turbo) or high which is max you should be able to get. For mild OC you can go off easily with budget cooler, even on toastier CPUs. But for midrange you need midrange cooler and for high, high/top-end cooler. There are CPUs that would benefit from triple rads if you aim to top.
