I assume CPU cooler?
What CPU? Will you be overclocking?

Titan Fenrir's always a good bet!

Another good price vs. performance cooler is the Hyper 212+ (unfortunately not in that review, would have been interesting to see where it would place) since the 3rd place one is out of stock.

The Megahalem could passive cool a stock i5 - it is serious overkill. So unless that appeals to you save a little $$ and get the Hyper 212+. While certainly a notch below the PM, it still is an excellent cooler. It keeps my OC'ed i5 below 56C on the Cores.

So would a cooler be needed for this particular set up if it was not being overclocked?

No, not really. However, the included cooler is only mediocre. Might still want to get a mid range aftermarket cooler, but the stock cooler will work.

No problems, will probably get a cooler to be safe. Thanks
