Question Cooling the i9

Apr 5, 2019
Hi folks,

I've been thinking about the Idea to get the Intel i9-9900k processor
but Ive heard it heats up really quick and I was wondering if I had to upgrade my
Air cooling, first of all i'm not going to be overclocking this thing because personally don't feel the need to

But the main thing is ill be playing games and possibly streaming every now and then.

My current Air cooler is from Cooler Master Hyper H412R
Is that one good enough to keep the tempatures down at a decent level?

Thanks in Advance :)
The Noctua NH-D15 is still acknowledged as being at or near the top of a very short list of air coolers competent at dissipating sizeable/large thermal input.....; if you want air cooling, I'd start there. (Might be adequate for stock or even moderate OC operation...)
