  1. No, without overclocking, you will be fine with the stock HSF.
  2. no, though it doesn't hurt to lessen the stress on the CPU with one. it doesn't have to be now. get one at a more convenient time whenever you feel like it.
  3. sometimes the Hyper 212+ goes on sale for $15 dollars AR at Newegg, sometimes amazon has decent prices too.

    I recommend the 212+
  4. The stock cooler will be fine. If you want a cooler definitely get the Hyper 212 Plus. The price/performance is amazing.
