I will not be overclocking my machine, and I'd like to know what you guys think about the stock fan. I will be doing some gaming (heavy), video editing and 3D modelling. Will it cool the temperature just fine? Or should I buy a 3rd party cooler? If so, which cheap air cooler would you recommend. Thanks in advance.

It's fine. Just to ask, why did you buy an unlocked processor and a presumably overclockable motherboard if you aren't going to overclock?

Well, I was going to buy the standard 4770 which has 3.0 GHz of bus speed. However I found a 4770K with 3.5GHz that is cheaper. So, I decided to go with the 4770K, I may overclock in the future (2-3 years), that's why I am not confortable spending the money in a cooler right now.

the stock fan should do it but just to be safe you could always get an aftermarket cooler a great and very popular option would be this

Are you sure this is compatible with the 1150 socket? I mean, on the specs it doesn't say it.

Yes the mounting points are the same as 1155/1156.

Just have two extra hands when installing it. I can't get it ever "right" the first time when installing that one on my own. It's just too damn big.
