Hi
I'm upgrading my pc from I3 2125 to I7 7700k. The problem is my current case(Cooler Master K350) doesn't support large air coolers. Im currently using akasa ak 968 x4 air cooler. Would this air cooler be enough for 4-5 months, on stock I7, till I buy myself a new case and cooler for my birthday? The other option would be to buy a Cooler Master MasterAir Pro 3(it sells for around 40€ in my country) and keep it for a year or so.

I wouldn't use it. i7 7700k can turbo to 4.5MHz. It will use 90W, most of which will become heat. You'd have to keep monitoring temps for a year.
