I recently got a I5-4670k CPU, i'm still using the stock fan, that it came with.
Also I have the Antec 302 case. I'm still using the default case fans that came with it.

I'm able to keep my CPU around 38 C- 42C when idle. (Mind you, the fans are on full speed, all of them)

When it's in use, it hits pretty high, about 65- 80C (By in-use, I mean something that uses the CPU alot, like video-editing, Games, etc.
not like paint or chrome haha)
My mother board is the ASUS Z87 PRO, if that gives any ideas to what will fit or not.

I just want everything to stay very very cool, I did buy the i5-4670k for overclocking. But I'm a bit afraid to OC just because it gets very hot on it's own. And Overclocking might just over do it.
So i just want to keep the CPU cold even when I do eventually overclock it.

I also want to keep the case cold in general, the motherboard is at 29C. But I guess you can never go wrong with too much cooling.

According to the Case, It can hold about 4 more 120mm case fans. Not too sure what to go with, As I keep hearing Noctua or Shark.
Also I'm not sure If I should keep the fans that came with the Case or replace them.

This is also my first build so, I'm not sure about parts exactly. So if i can get any help. That would be great.
Another thing, I don't want to spend too much on the parts, but something reasonable
If you need anymore information, just ask :)

Your temps are normal.
I suggest you use the stock fans that come with your case.
My preference would be two as intakes behind the filters. That keeps your case clean.
More fans than that adds noise and not much more cooling.
See how you do first. If really necessary, it is easy to add/change fans later/
If you want a conservative OC, then a cm hyper212 would be fine.
If you want the very best, look at a noctua or Phanteks cooler with 140mm fans.

How easy and high you can oc haswell is largely determined by your luck in the bin lottery.
Be happy with what you get. Even at stock, the 4670K is a great chip and will run any game well.

Alright, Thank you
I was a bit afraid about the temperatures to be honest, but that reassures me.
I'll check out the Coolermaster, Thank you again
