All of those coolers are small and will not give you much cooling power. Any of them will be adequate for the 6700k if you will not be overclocking it. None of them will be adequate except for possibly a small amount of overclock.

Is there a reason you have not included larger coolers in your list? Are your funds limited? Do you not have many choices where you live? Is your case (cabinet) too narrow to allow a larger cooler to fit? We need more information to help you. Of the coolers you listed, this one https://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/be-quiet--Pure-Rock-Tower-Kuehler_980846.html is the best.

What is the make and model of your case? How wide is it? Can you give us a link to the case?

What is the limit of your budget? How much are you willing to spend on a cooler?

What motherboard are you pairing the 6700k with?

I repeat, do you intend to overclock your CPU?

The Sharkoon case you have chosen should have clearance for bigger, taller and much better coolers than you have listed in post #1. If you are going to overclock the CPU you need to get a bigger cooler.

Yes, that should work better. The heat sink weighs 850 gm so it is considerably larger than the others you listed.
