  1. The stock cooler will do.But to be on a safe side,the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus will be nice.

    i dont think the stock cooler will do, even if it does, the chances are the fan will sound like a jet engine or the cpu will heat throttle straight away, making the overclock pointless the hyper 212 would be good up until about 4.5ghz and the arctic freezer 13 is a pretty good choice for a cheap and good cooler too
  3. The OP has asked for only 4GHz so I didn't go much above Hyper 212 Plus.Moreover at such a low cost and wide market availability,this cooler seems ideal.
    But surely(My Opinion).

    true the hyper 212 is good enough for the op's needs but the stock cooler can hardly keep the i7 @ stock cool tho thats all i meant.
    no offense intended :D
