I forgot to order the CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ CPU cooler. If I don't plan on overclocking, do I need a CPU cooler at all? I thought that people said in other posts that either the CPU or mobo come with stock cooling units, but I didn't find anything that attached to the top of my CPU. Can the case fans provide all of the cooling or should I buy the Hyper 212+?
Also, if I buy a 212+, do I also need to buy aftermarket thermal paste?
Fyi, this is my first build. My rig will be under the heaviest burden while gaming.
