I'll make this short.

Friend has a failing i5 2400 platform, all testing shows it has to be a failing motherboard when put under stress.

I've essentially told her to go with at least a 6500 and 16GB of DDR4 3200.

She will not be overclocking, but still wants to go with something like a Corsair H105 (that won't crunch the CPU).

My 3 questions are.

Is the cooler worth it, and is it one of the newer ones that won't crunch Skylake chips ?

Is the 6700k worth it (for HyperThreading and other aspects) over the 6500 if no overclocking will be done ?

Should I be recommending a higher-end older proc for whatever reason ?
