Hey all, so I'm working on building a computer for a friend and I was wondering if I would be able to run a stock intel cooler on a i5-9600k so long as I'm running it at stock speeds. Just looking to use it temporarily to install windows and make sure it boots properly while I wait for a better cooler to come in. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!! :)

Any type of fan or ventilator should do the job fine.Just dont try to game cpu intensive games and you should be fine.Intel stock cooler can handle the basic tasks such a downloading windows,browsing or other easy tasks.Just make sure you have thermal paste on it xD.
