Hey everyone!
So I'm upgrading from an Intel Pentium G4560 3.5 GHz Dual Core to an Intel BX80662I76700K 4512 Core i7 6700K 4.00 GHz Unlocked Quad Core. Can I use the same cooler that came with G4560 do you think? It's an E97379-003 .

Also when upgrading just the processor do you need to reformat and reinstall everything?

Thank you!!

Not going to be enough for proper cooling and no, you don't have to reinstall windows but do check if all cores are enabled.

Bummer :( Will this one do the trick then?


Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler w/ 4 Continuous Direct Contact Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins, Intel LGA1151, AMD AM4/Ryzen

At least I won't have to reformat and all that. That's a good thing
