Location: US I would like to push as much juice out of the 8700k short of asking NASA whatever they use to keep rockets from melting. ( actual budget no more than $275 and would like to go as close to that fabled 5ghz as possible )
Either liquid or Air Coolers is fine
I am using the Phanteks P400s Case which has up 360mm rad support in the front and 240mm rad support on the top.
( PS i am wondering if changing the fans on Noctua coolers would change their cooling potential )
( EDIT ) I just read the user manual and found out i cannot install a 360rad without for going hard drives completely which i cannot do, i can do up to 280mm max
