You can't overclock the 4690. So you should be fine with the stock cooler. But if you just want cooler temps for your CPU, go with a Hyper 212 EVO and you'll be golden.
You won't need it because you can't do any true overclocking but it will keep your PC quieter and cooler than the little buzzsaw that is the stock Intel cooler. Basically, anything with a 120mm fan that is mounted vertically is superior to it.
