Currently I use the stock cooler (Wraith Prism). I live in a hot country so I can't go beyond 4.1Ghz or it will either crash or freeze. I get very stable results at 4.1Ghz but the system can sometimes get noisy so I'm often sitting on 4.0Ghz.

I'd like to buy a new cooler and push it all the way to 4.3Ghz (or even 4.4 if possible). I'm originally thinking of the Dark Rock Pro 4 although I would really like to keep the RGB effect that I have going on between the current cooler, Mobo and RAM. In which case I found that the MasterAir MA410M to be an option.

Would you say it's the MA410M is an adequate upgrade that'll get me to 4.3Ghz (and possibly higher) or stick with the safe route of the Dark Rock Pro 4?

The Dark Rock Pro4 is a 250w cooler. The MasterAir MA410M is a 200w cooler. That difference will be noticed when overclocking, and as time goes on and both coolers age. The Dark Rock Pro4 will age a bit better in time.

I never gave that some thought. I'll take that into account.
