Best CPU Cooler for 8700k?

Hey guys,
I have just ordered the i7 8700k
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a 240mm AIO?
Or if not AIO, Air cooling?
Looking forward to what you all say!

    I would get a air cooler. Can't recomend one without knowing the case your using and where you can buy parts.

    I would get one of these. If you looking for a high overclock you will need something better.
    The Universal has no memory clearance issues you will be able to see all 4 memory slots with it installed, the Ultimate has a bit better performance but you will need to remove the fan to access the 4th memory slot.

    I, for the most part, will probably be running stock frequency most of the times to be honest. Overclocking is there as an option to whenever I need it.

    Will the Ultimate be okay with 2 x 8gb (16gb) Corsair Vengeance LPX then?
