This is my build. Should I add a CPU cooler? If so, which one? I'd prefer ones that are on sale at Newegg right now. After I collect the rebates and sell the two copies of Arkham City and the copy of Battlefield 3 this comes with, it's about $700. Pretty good deal as far as I can tell.

2500k => overclocking which pretty much requires an aftermarket cooler.
