i just bought a new i9 9900k and am pairing it with my pretty new Be Quiet! Pure Rock 2 and after a game of overwatch it reached 88 Celcius and i could feel the case getting hot. I used this same cooler with my i7 8700 and it was getting hot as well. Im trying to remount the cpu cooler right now to see if it helps but should i buy a new cooler and what one? my budget isnt crazy but i want something that will really get the job done well.

Scythe Fuma should handle it, and Newegg has the Enermax Liqmax III 240mm liquid coolers at a decent price after rebate if you're in the US.
i dont think the air cooler will fit in my case but i could fit a two fan of the aio. you think thatll get the job done cooling this cpu?
 
What is the make/model of your case?
As a general rule, I would not buy an AIO cooler unless I could not fit a good air cooler like a noctua NH-D15s in the case, or unless I was seeking record overclocks and needed a 360 aio or better.

this is the case i have its a little small but i needed a smaller one to with my setup. width wise i dont think i can go any bigger than the be quiet pure rock 2 i already have
 
Nice case.
Your case specs allow for a 160mm air cooler.
Actually, smaller is better for concentrated airflow.
I would move the included 120mm fan to the rear as exhaust and put two 140mm front fans as intakes. I like 140mm because they move more air quietly.
Noctua NH-D15s will fit nicely. It also comes in black if that is important to you.

The older nh-D15 is 165mm and will not fit.

ive heard great things ab water cooling so im hoping this cooler does the job well

It should be borne in mind that when installing the AIO system, the cooling of the CPU is improved, but the airflow in the VRM-zone decreases, so you must have a fairly good motherboard, and excellent front airflow, or additionally install airflow on the VRM-zone. Many do not consider this

sorry if this is a stupid question im afraid my knowledge on this stuff is very limited but what is a vrm zone? my motherboard:
https://www.newegg.com/msi-b365m-pro-vdh/p/N82E16813144269?Item=N82E16813144269

and i have three pretty good corsair fans in the front of this case i have:

I have a question for you. Are you using a B365m motherboard with an i9 9900k processor? It is not right. The 9900k must be used with a Z-chipset motherboard. Unfortunately, a cheap motherboard and the I 9900k are incompatible. On the VRM it is necessary to have radiators for heat dissipation.
Thanks.

I apologize. I am not a native English speaker and I can make mistakes, it worries me. I wanted to say that a motherboard based on the B365m chipset is not the best solution for the i9 9900k processor. Do you understand me?

yeah i understand. what is the issue with combining those together specifically? i didnt know that was an issue. everywhere i look online it says they are fine together

For the most part, such motherboards have only 3-4 phases of the processor power supply (VRM) devoid of radiators, therefore, during overclocking, they cannot give the same Core i9 the 150-200 W it needs under load, heating up to more than a hundred degrees Celsius, forcing the processor to reset frequency.

okay so i should upgrade my motherboard? i dont plan on overclocking for now will i be fine for a little while with this motherboard if i dont overclock?
