More about cpu cooler buy
  1. I would suggest the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO, I have had great experiences in the past with it especially with overclocking!

  2. You don't need to buy an after market cooler; the CPU already includes one. You also don't need aftermarket thermal paste, again, the CPU includes some.
    The EVGA NEX PSUs aren't good, especially for the price. Go for an EVGA G2, Corsair RMx, Bitfenix Whisper, or EVGA G3.

    If you would like a CPU cooler to reduce the noise levels or increase aesthetics, go for the Cryorig M9i.

    The stock cooler is great for everything except overclocking. So yes

  7. Yes, the stock cooler will keep the CPU within limits at stock. May just be a little audible. An aftermarket cooler for the i7 7700 is not necessary.

    Also, Lucky_SLS, The Corsair CX450M is a better PSU, or a $5 increase from the XFX TS brings you an even better PSU - the Fractal Design Edison M 450. Otherwise, the XFX TS is a good buy at that price.
