I am wondering if my current choice of the be quiet! - Dark Rock 4 CPU Cooler is a good combo with the Intel Core i5-9600K. Is it overkill? can I get a cheaper one with same performance?

My planned setup now is:

Yes you can get a cheaper air cooler, but it wouldn't be black and as good as the be quiet! Dark Rock 4. :)
