i5-9600K is suitable with default cooler?

Hello,

I have a simple question.

If I do not overclocking, i5-9600K is suitable with Intel default cooler(non-K bundle cooler)? Default cooler can recommend for i5-9600K?

I want to get an official answer from the technical support team.

Best regards,

Seong-Jin Roh​

By definition, the coolers supplied by Intel will support your processor in all standard configurations. Overclocking configurations will likely require an alternate (higher wattage and/or higher mass) solution, however -- and that is why no cooler is packaged with the K processors.

If you are not overclocking, then yes, you can -- provided that the cooler you choose supports 95W processors.
