[SOLVED] Suggestions for coolers for an i5-11600k at 210w max?

So I originally bought a Cryorig H7 air cooler but I've now realized that it can only handle up to 140 watts and the i5-11600K is rated for 125 watts even before overclocking, so I think I might have to get a different cooler. Any suggestions? I don't really want to go through the hassle of water cooling but if it's the only choice I've got, I can deal with it.

P.S. brand new here so apologies for anything in advance lol

Huh? That 125w rating only accounts for the cpu running all core loads at BASE clock.
The PL2 rating, which accounts for those turbo boosts, is the same 251w as the 11700K and 11900K.


But uhh, no one could possibly recommend anything without knowing what can/can't fit in your chassis...
