Does anyone recommend a CPU cooler thats not stock and do I need one? I won't be OC and no Crossfire either (If that makes a difference). If you think I do what Coolers would you reccomend and if their is anything else I need with it.
I have 8GB of RAM, a radeon 7870, intel i5-3570, And a 1TB HDD

Any help is appreciated.

^ I agree
However, if the noise levels of the stock Intel cooler is bothering you, I would recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. It's fairly cheap for the performance you can get from it and it's a heck of a lot quieter :) 

Otherwise, there's no need.

The stock cooler will be all you need for non-overclocking... as long as you install it correctly. Sometimes they can be a bit troublesome to get installed with the feet flat against the motherboard and the pushpins opened properly behind the board.
