Hey guys! So I decided to go with the DRP4 for the 9700K and finished building everything today. I couldn't believe how huge this thing is!! I was a little worried that I wasn't going to be able to put my side panel back on but it just made it! Installation was pretty easy using the video from the website. The only pain in the *** was mounting the 2 fans. Those flimsy metal clips kept falling off and was kind of a pain in the *** but it was worth it. You can definitely tell you get what you pay for from the looks of it. I used Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut thermal paste. While idling, I've been getting 24C and while I was playing Far Cry New Dawn in 4K I was getting 34-38C. I haven't tried overclocking just yet so this is at stock settings. Funny how these temps are much cooler than my i5 ever was!

That cooler is a beast. I got the older one the DRP3 and these coolers stand up to 240mm aio coolers. 5ghz should be easy on that cpu unless you lost the silicon lotto horribly.
