Folks, Id like to upgrade from an i-3-6100 to an i7-6700K and would like to get some opinions on this HSF unit.https://www.newegg.com/noctua-nh-l9x65/p/N82E16835608071. I've currently got an i3-6100 and don't think the current CPU HSF unit will cut it for the 6700K whcih is a 91W unit and my current CPU is a 61W unit.. Please let me know what you think and what you've experienced.

Your CPU cooler will be absolutely fine, no chance of any throttling issues as long as your case has one intake and exhaust fan.

UsandThem, thanks for that link. I had no idea that Noctua had a compatibility page! Thanks. I'll search for other Noctua HSF units that might fill the bill.
