air cooler for light 8600k oc'ing

mxk
 Share

I'm planning on buying a 8600k for my gaming build and I wanted to do some light overclocking and heavier oc'ing later when I'm squeezing life out of the i5 before upgrading again.

Is there a air cooler thats ok for light overclocking? Just curious, but if there isn't a good priced one I'll probably just go with an AIO.

Oh, and I don't want to do a hyper 212 evo since it has a sleeve bearing

I forgot to include in my post, but I don't want to go with a hyper 212 evo in this case since It has a sleeve bearing which is usually kinda cheap.

You're going to save money by going to a more expensive cooling solution..?

Ugh, I meant I want to save money with a good air cooler that isn't too expensive but if there isn't a very good option I'll just save up some more cash for an AIO or beefy be quiet! cooler

Then just get something like H100i and do higher OC.

the 8600K loses threads compared to the 8700, and I don't think that's good for the long run.

What's your full build/budget/country, and monitor resolution/refresh rate?

you are probably better off waiting for a 9700k which is soldered, my personal opinion is to go full cheap (2600x stock cooler) or go all out 9700k aio since the delidded 8600k arent sold by silicon lottery anymore.

If you only have a 1080p 60hz display that hardware is rather overkill

Wouldn't waste money on RGB, just buy a Coolermaster H500 if that's your thing

that's what a more value oriented build looks like, perfectly fine for gaming

 

Vega 56 because the price is back down and it saves you money on a future free-sync display

Im pretty hyped too, I'm hoping for a good refresh of the i5 so I don't have to do 8th gen. I'm not alone in that decision I assume

my display isn't freesync but I don't really care to be honest. I picked good hardware bc the monitor and I want the build to last me until I go to college then I might upgrade before moving out. I won't be doing 1440p on all my games but some of them for sure

If you don't need ultra settings even an 8 GB RX 580 is perfectly fine for 1440p gaming, but do you have a 1440p 60hz display or something?

IF you only have a 60hz display and don't plan on upgrading you certainly do not need a 8600K for most games

my samsung monitor goes up to 144hz, and is 1440p. rx 580 is great but i'm going with more powerful stuff so It'll last longer. I have like 5 different builds planned out with the 8600k atx and matx builds being at the top of my budget. I'll probably still end up going with a 8400 build since I know thats sufficient

What's the model number? as it probably supports free-sync.

an R5 2600 is certainly a better value than the i5 8400.

Samsung LC27JG50QQNZA is the model, I'm pretty sure it doesn't have freesync but I could be wrong.

I have a ryzen build planned out too..

nah I think it actually came out just a month or two ago, unless thats right when the freesync rush was. Not sure why it wasn't included but I don't really mind since I wanted to do a evga 1070 or 1070ti like I have in my build

If you decide to go with the 8600k, good options include:

Kotetsu: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/7998TW/scythe-cpu-cooler-scktt1000

Justice: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pGPzK8/reeven-justice-821-cfm-sleeve-bearing-cpu-cooler-rc-1204

Mugen 5 Rev. B: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/8GBrxr/scythe-mugen-5-rev-b-512-cfm-cpu-cooler-scmg-5100

 

The first two uses sleeve bearings as well but it's less of an issue when fans are blowing horizontally as opposed to blowing vertically and when upside down. If it's a big deal to you, the Mugen 5 Rev. B comes with a Kaze Flex which uses Sealed Precision FDB.
