    Question I need help with overclocking.

    Pretty simple really. I have an i5 9600k running in a gigabyte z370 XP SLI motherboard, and the cpu is being cooled by a custom loop with a 360mm and 240mm radiator (graphics card is in that loop as well, so not too overkill). I understand two things with overclocking; changing the core ratio...

    [SOLVED] Cooler for a i5 9600k

    Hi, I'm building my first pc and would like to know which cooler would you recommend for a i5 9600k. I've never OCed a CPU before so, if I do, I won't push it to it's max capacitiy. The case allows coolers up to 175 mm, so there shouldn't be a problem in that matter.
