Air cooler for i5-8600k

Go to solution Solved by jiyeon,

I personally use an Arctic Freezer 33 eSports One with my i5-8600K, it cools my 8600K nicely at a 4.6GHz overclock, at idle around 30°C and full load in gaming yields temperatures no higher than 55°C.

I got mine for £32, so it's a nice budget cooler, and looks great to boot.

What kind of air cooler do you recommend for the i5-8600k for max~50$? NO WATER COOLER because I am planning to make a custom loop in max. 18 months

Let me play devils advocate a little anyways.  If you are planning to go custom loop in 18 months... then why not get something like https://www.swiftech.com/drivex3aio.aspx

 

That is an AIO yes, but an expandable one with custom loop grade components and pump. That means you could just add another radiator grab some fitts,tubing,and gpu block and have a full loop for a fraction of the cost.

It seems really nice and not much money but I couldn't find any store that sells it in my country

I can't say for sure because I use static pressure case fans in tandem with the cooler, as well as that I use headphones. If I had to take a guess, I'd say it's only noticeably loud if you're within 10cm of the cooler.

That's not that bad I think, I might stick with this one then
