Question What cooler to pick

Nov 22, 2018

Im sure this is a question that gets thrown around a lot, if so, i am sorry ..
I almost have my build together, i just cant decide on a CPU cooler. The problem is that the store im buying at do not have a big selection of cpu coolers.
The cpu i am getting is a i7 9700k
The best air cooler they have listed is a Cooler Master MasterAir MA410P
It doesnt look like it is the best air cooler on the market, but i have found reviews that make it sound reasonable

They also have some water cooling options
  • Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L
  • Corsair Hydro H75 2018
  • Corsair Hydro H100i PRO RGB
Now the question is.. is that air cooler (the MA410P) enough to support my i7 9700k? with maybe light overclock in the future
or should i go with one of the listed water cooling. The guy at the shop seems to be quite convinced that the air cooler is the way to go, but i wouldnt mind some more opinions.
If you do feel i should go with one of the water coolers, i wouldnt mind knowing how much better you feel it would be than the air cooler

Thank you
