Haswell on stock cooler.

Hi, guys and gals,
I am gonna be getting a 4670k CPU and I have a question about the stock cooler. Is it good enough, so that I can use it for like 2 months, before I buy a good aftermarket cooler? I will primarily do gaming, nothing more CPU intensive that that. Also, I assure you, that the airflow in my case is relatively good.
Thanks!

    Room temp ca 20 degrees ( C )

    I got the 4770K with Hyper 212 EVO

    Surfing the web gives a stable temp of 30 degrees ( C )

    AIDA64 full load gives 55 degrees ( C )

    But this is with two 120mm high performance fans (pull/push)
  3. of course it will be enough but not something special just keep the cpu away from restarting!
    no word about oc!for a typical use it will be fine!
