Hello!So I'm going to buy an i7-10700k and I put on it a be quiet!dark rock tf.Right now I own a zalman z11 high performance case and I have the standard fans like in the photo:

I plan on buying 2 more fans to put one down and one up(the optional ones).Is it necessary or the standard ones are enough?
Thank you!

That up there is the power tables for the 10th gen cpus.

PL 1, or Power Limit 1, is for the cpu at base frequency across all cores. 3.8ghz in the case of the 10700K.
Power limit 2 is for the cpu to hit those sweet turbo clocks across all cores.
Tau is the time allowed, in seconds, for the cpu to remain running at PL 2 before it's forced to run at PL 1 for a brief period of time.
Overclocking throws all that out the window.

With cooling, you need some headroom. If the cooler supports up to 220w, and you apply an all core load on a 229w cpu, it's going to either thermal throttle, or be darn close to it.
