Hello guys,

I'm back with a new question: What CPU cooler should I get for my i5 9600k(95 TDP watt).

In my First thread I asked: what should i upgrade in my current rig. we got the conclusion that the cpu upgrade would be the most beneficial(link of the thread:https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/looking-for-information-to-upgrad-my-current-pc.3650773/page-2?view=date).

We concluded that its the best choice to overclock the cpu that i have now to get the max performance out of it until i get the new one. I wanted to upgrade because i wasn't getting the desirable 144hz constant in the heaviest loads of my game. So basically I need a cpu cooler that's good for the i7 9700k
Now i want to know what the best cpu cooler is for the price: 60-100EUROS(i Buy it on azerty.nl). i was thinking about an nh-xx but I don't know which one I should get for my future cpu(and my i5 9600k of course).

This is my current rig:

CPU - Intel Core i5-9600K
MOBO - Gigabyte Z390 GAMING X
GPU - MSI GeForce GTX 1660 TI GAMING X 6G
PSU - Be quiet! System Power 9 600W
RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16Gb (dual sticks)
Case:
Cooler Master MasterCase MC500 - Midtowermodel

Cooling:
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Black Edition - CPU Cooler
Fractal Design Dynamic GP-14 2x - Fans
Stock coolermaster 140mm 2x - fans

Storage :
1tb Seagate barracuda hdd
500gb kingston A1000 m.2 ssd

Keyboard: hyperx alloy fps rgb
mouse: Gpro wireless
monitor: 1. AOC27G2U (144hz 1ms)

Noctua NH-D15s is as good as it gets for an air cooler.
Anything better will be a liquid cooler with at least 360 size radiators.
Your case is excellent for air cooling. I might put two 140mm front intakes in.
