That is a great motherboard.Thing is,it is also an overclocker.Either you get a an unlocked CPU(ends with k,eg 3570k) or change the motherboard to a H77 based board.I'm a fan of the former just because of the board.

Fairly good build, although if you want the best performance for games, you'll want to spend more on your video card than your processor, as that is what allows it to get good FPS. I would maybe recommend looking an Amd processor, for example an Fx 8320, or Fx 6300 and use the extra money to put into a better video card.
And for your question, no you wont need a cpu cooler, the stock fan which comes with the processor should provide adequate cooling.

Alright I think i came up with a build that is a much better bang for your buck it even includes things like the optical drive a CPU cooler and the operating system which is optional and you can take those things off if you want!

Just some issues to point out, if your not looking to upgrade ram in the near future is probably best to go for 2x4gb.
Also "Sandisk ReadyCache 32GB 2.5" Solid State Disk" is not actually a real ssd, its just a cache you can't actually install the operating system on this.
