I need an aircooler recommendation for my 9900K

Hey guys I am looking to buy a new air cooler and I am currently stuck trying to decide on one that will handle my 9900K. I am now torn between the NOCTUA NH-U12A (Little monster performer) and NOCTUA NH-D15 chromax.Black and DEEP COOL Assassin III Air CPU Cooler. Sadly currently running on my main rig a Hyper 212 Evo just been waiting for coolers to be on stock for Noctua but the day keep getting pushed back for the all in black noctua. Which of these coolers you guys recommend or do you have others that will handle this chip when overclocked. Looking for black or chrome and black but not the noctua brown fans. XD

Thanks in advance!

I have the NH-D15 and I can push my 9900k to 5.0GHz on all cores 1.335v. It does get quite toasty at 90C-95C on Prime95.

NHD-15 with their 2k RPM fans are best

Forget the Deepcool. Either of the Noctuas will do the job very well. If noise is a priority, the Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT and be quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 are also worth your consideration.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

There's also the new all black Noctua NH-D15. But my vote also goes to Thermalright Le Grand macho RT.

Noctua NH-D15 or 15S hands down. Strangely almost the same performance between these 2 even thou 15S has 1 fan

4 coolers with VERY broad range of performance, while Tisis and Le Grand Macho were left silent. That test only tells that Noctua is the most performing while there are its performance equivalents.
