The 13th gen i7 of this tier is garbage. It's a 250W chip. So is the i9! Just get an i9!

I got the i5 you did because I wanted an air cooled system, and 180W was the max I was willing to go on air (a good call, considering 180W is what the i9 laptop CPU tops out at, and it's on air)

I think your cooling is a bit overkill, but heck, if it helps you sleep at night great. Your cooling is good for another 70 watts, so the i9 would be quite happy in your setup. The i5 doesn't need all that, but as you suggested, better to have it and not need it.
There's smoke in my iris
But I painted a sunny day on the insides of my eyelids
So I'm ready now (What you ready for?)
I'm ready for life in this city
And my wings have grown almost enough to lift me
