yes, the improvement over a stock cooler is pretty drastic, hyper 212 has good reviews, I have a CM hyper212 EVO, and am loving it.

Depends. If you are not going to overclock, maybe yes and maybe no. It depends on how efficiently your case moves air through it.

If you are going to overclock, yes, you need a better than stock cooler.

Ther are many coolers better than the Hiper 212+, but they all cost significantly more. At around $30, you cannot beat the 212. For the price, nothing comes close.

it's not necessary but after market coolers offer better cooling and less noise then stock coolers. the cm 212+ is a very good cooler for the price.
