Dual tower air ccolers for my 8600K

Max Cheung

I have this plan for building a new PC. However, I don't know which cooler I should buy. Liquid cooling is out of the question. Custom loops are too cumbersome, and any cooling method that requires me to open the top of my R6 or sacrifice my front intake is not my cup of tea. I've been looking into dual tower air coolers and would like your recommendations for them. Of course, the best is have it to fit my black/white colour scheme.

 

TIA

Case and RAM, please. Those two dictate which coolers you can even use. Cryorig R1 Ultimate is probably the biggest, Dark Rock Pro 4 at the moment best overall.

I have had good results with a Noctua D15 on 8086k (5.1 all core without delid), and for stock it is overkill. Maybe consider the D14 also. Both should fit in the R6 and the cutouts are fairly high so most ram should still fit.

What ram are you using? Where are you shopping / located? Budget?
