Unless you are overclocking , or want a quieter comp then the intel stock cooler is fine .

If you want quiet then change the case . The 430 is ok for such a cheap case but you can probably do better . Esp if you want front USB 3 ports [ Im assuming your mb has an internal connector]

Check the memory is rated for 1.5 volt . Lower timings will help in applications

Choose not to go with the Stock cooler as may overclock in the future. Saves having to remove the board to fit the cooler. As far as USB 3.0 the board has 4 rear ports so that should suffice.

Memory is 1.5V rated and Timings are 9-9-9-24, not the lowest but should suffice.

I would look at 1600 MHz RAM with 9-9-9-24 timings
and run it at 1333 MHz 8-8-8-21 if it can
