Will probably be ok. 4790 runs a little warm so check temps to see how its doing. A better cooler is fairly cheap.

That processor is roughly $330 depending on where you buy it... It is worth spending the extra $50 on something that will keep it much cooler - which will also help it last longer.
Doable? Yes. But I wouldn't recommend it.
