I am upgrading my CPU to a Intel Core i5-9600 3.1 GHz 6-Core Processor and I was wandering if I would need to upgrade my cooling.
I currently have a Intel E97378-001 and I need to know if it will provide sufficient cooling and if not could you recommend another CPU fan I could use.

Specs:
Motherboard: Asus Z390-A
Ram: 16gb corsair vengeance ddr4
SSD: 223GB KINGSTON SA400S37240G (SATA-2 (SSD))
HDD: 931GB Western Digital WDC WD10EZEX-00BN5A0 (SATA )
GPU: 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (ASUStek Computer Inc)
PSU: CiT atx 12V model:750UB
OS: Windows 10

Thanks for any responses.

That cpu comes with a heatsink. You can always use it. If you feel it's not enough, or the workloads on the cpu tell you it's not enough, you can always upgrade to a decent budget or mid-range cooler.
