Hi guys I am going to get the i5 4690 and I am not going to OC, so is it good enough if I just use the cooler than comes with it?

Yeah it'll be fine as long as your case has good airflow

The stock cooler will keep its temps low enough.
It does come down to noise though. Most stock coolers are very loud (especially AMD)

It's OK, but it might be a bit too noisy for you if you like to keep your PC silent.

The noise won't bother me much because I will be using headsets most of the time anyway. Thank you everyone.
