Are there any examples off the top of y'all heads on good air coolers that might fit, if the cooling isn't good enough?

Should I apply my own thermal paste to the cooler, or should the one that comes with it suffice (or should I just find out on my own?)?

also, I know there is one intake fan by the GPU, but I'm not getting a hybrid gpu so the fan slot is going to be empty on the bed of the case between the gpu and the mobo. Should I put an intake fan there or a out..take..? exhaust? fan there?

I'm really bad at figuring out all this air current stuff in these cases and google has only confused me more haha

edit: I'm basically 99.98% dead set on using this case b/c it's actually the best.
The included H6SF cooler should be able to handle the 8600K with a mild overclock.

As far as an additional fan, I'd recommend using the bottom 120mm as an intake.

For aftermarket coolers, it'll require a bit of research since they're not solutions offered by us officially. Most low-profile air coolers should work if you go that route though.
