I will likely upgrade to a 5800x3d assuming i can get a good deal on black friday.

I already have a noctua nh-u9s for my 4690k, but will it be enough for the 5800x3d? Or should i upgrade?

I'd try it and see?  It may still succeed, but, it'll probably be toasty AF.  

 

If you can upgrade to an AK-620 or something?  It'd be better cooled.

Actually... I will have to let you know shortly, I have it installed, but so far from what I am seeing, this is one cool running CPU.  But bare in mind my cooler is massive compared to yours, not just in size, but actual capacity.

Try it out. It might not have a lot of thermal headroom for boosting but should be fine at stock or undervolted.

Yeah I would try it out. It really doesn’t run that warm.

@Dragonautdon't forget to Curve optimize it [-5 or -10 should work for all cores], and u can always lower the power rating slightly on top of the CO if it makes the u9s work.

also do cinebench on stock settings 1st, note down the scores before u start tuning

I'd rather run some games, as u can have lower cinebench scores that don't impact fps. but as long don't get hung-up on small score differences, cinebench is a good test. @Dragonaut Buildzoid solves this by taking a in-between approach, and limits the cinebench runs to 6 threads to emulate gaming performance.
