Hello. My current computer has an Intel Core i5-4590 with a stock cooler. I plan on upgrading my computer significantly, keeping just a few parts. The CPU I plan on getting is an Intel Core i7-8700K. It doesn't include a cooler. I'm wondering if I'd be able to reuse my current stock cooler for this new CPU. I wouldn't be overclocking it until I can get an aftermarket cooler, obviously. I'm aware that you can reuse coolers, I just don't know if my current one would be good enough for the i7. Thanks.
