Hi Guys,

I have ASRock X99 Extreme4-LGA 2011-v3 motherboard along with a Intel i7-5820k processor. I will use the system only for application programming and running virtualisation software like Vmware etc. No games will be played in this system whatsoever. Can you guys tell me if I would require any cooler or a heat sink or both for this processor and motherboard? If yes, then could you suggest me a good option with decent price range.

Thanks,
Dewdrops

Just note that the suggested H5 would actually be quite a bit better suited to this platform. I've used a 212 Evo with my 5930K and it mirrors what I've read in various other testaments regarding the 5820K/5930K. It should handle it at stock clocks, though it'd be far from ideal if overclocking were in mind.

Overall it's kind of like putting ketchup on steak. You're taking a high end enthusiast/production minded grade platform then slapping a budget cooler on it.
