Do I need a CPU cooler for this build?

Will I be needing a cpu cooler for this build? http://nz.pcpartpicker.com/p/2vrFM
I do not plan to overclock and I think that the 3 fans that come with the case would be fine. Is this correct?
Also any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks

  1. you don't need a big cooler for that cpu. stock cooler can do that job really well.
  2. i would always have a CPU cooler regardless of what im doing i would never rely on case fans i would always recommend a dedicated CPU cooler

    What cpu cooler would you recommend? I am pretty close to my budget, so nothing too expensive xD

    You don't need another Cooler as long as you won't Overclock, and it's a locked CPU so you won't be able to overclock... But the stock cooler should be fine ;)

    Though if you would like to lower the noise another cooler could be an idea maybe the noctua nh-d14.

    A low cost could be the Coolermaster 212 evo plus
  6. If your CPU is a "K" version, yes you need a cooler. but. for non "K" version you can incrase a little your clock. you only spend money. save that money to a gold power supply to save some money "on your powerbill". is that i think.
  7. If you dont mind the noise the stock cooler will be fine.
    However if you can spare the extra cash grab the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

    I have been told that the difference between bronze and gold is not that much and is only needed if I want to save every little bit of money.
  9. if this was me i would save and get a AiO water cooling kit and then later on oc
