EAN rule is that, in a number of metal complexes the metal atom tends to surround itself with sufficient ligands that the resulting effective atomic number is numerically equal to the atomic number of the noble-gas element found in the same period in which the metal is present

Here the nearest inert gas is Kypton(36)

Since EAN of Co(CO)4 is 35 , So the metals that cannot attain the EAN of the nearest inert gas in mono nuclear carbons will dimerize Co2(CO)8 in which oxidation state of metal increases by 1 unit.
