i7 7700k Overclock

I have managed to get my 7700k to 4.8 ghz at 1.235 volts with only a hyper 212 evo and around 80 degrees max temp with prime 95 and small ffts. My question is, what cpu cooler would you recommend to push it to 5.0. I am also concerned about aesthetics and so im mostly looking for aios as a viable option. I have been looking at the nzxt kraken x52 though. Would That be Sufficient?

  1. If your ambient temperatures don't pass 30-35 degrees, get an air cooler instead — it will do the job right for way cheaper price and quieter fans. Look into Cryorig H7, or Noctua NH-D14/15/S.

  2. I did look into those but they will not fit in my build, it looks like they will all interfere with my high profile ram.

    Well, Corsair H100i/H110i, Kraken x61/x62 will do just fine.

    Your temps are looking good, prime is not a good way to test temps, only stability. Use your actual use case to find temps.

    Just make sure your voltage isn't too high. Heat isn't what kills CPUs, voltage does.
