Hey there, currently I have an i5-6500, with a Cryorig M9i CPU cooler mounted on a MSI B150 M3 MOBO. Planning on upgrading the CPU to an i7-6700k. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B012M8LXQW/?tag=pcp0f-21 Will it all work good?:)

Cheers!

Yes but you won't be able to OC the 6700K.

Getting the 6700K as a future-proof item, next upgrade will be a Z series MOBO :)
