I was wondering if I can use an Intel stock cooler on an Intel Core i5 4430 since it's a locked processor. I've heard people say i's fine but I want to make sure...

You can use it, but if you can still get something like a hyper 212 evo.

Only use stock coolers if it's a dual core, or if you need to only use it on a quad core until you can buy a better cooler.

It will work fine but its a noisy cooler due to the small fan they use.
