Spend the extra 20 dollars and get the better stock speeds plus the ability too.

 

I started overclocking this year and I have been using computers for gaming for about 12 or 11. There will come a time when you will want to OC and when you do and you can't, you will be very saderooni.

K version WAS THE BEST DECISION I made back in 2011.

by the time u need to OC to run games decently, u will probably be getting a new pc by that point anyway. heck my non k i7 3770 is 5 years old and performs very well.

Stock Intel coolers are not ryzen quality, they are barely usable.

What kind of cooler would you recommend that are similar to a stock cooler?

For a non K i7 I would maybe buy a Hyper 212 Evo (or x) but seeing as how they are hard to mount I would suggest a Noctua NH-U12S even if it is more expensive. Easy to install, you will never have to worry about heating, and you can use it with later systems.
