Hello, so here is my PC build for gaming, recording, rendering, and streaming. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/En8u So I don't plan to overclock at all (Which is why I got the non k version) and I'm wondering if the stock cooler will be fine for me, or if I should get something like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo, because I have heard that the the stock cooler is garbage.

Stock cooler is garbage.

I would advice you to get a cheap high performing water cooler like the Cooler Master Seidon 120m.

Take a look at a review I tried to make of it.

My max temperatures went from 87 celsius to 59 celsius.

It performs as a H70, but cost the same as a H40. That is value, mate! :)

definatly, those stock coolers are designed to do their job, you won't exceed a temperature of 50°C on max load.

My i5-3570 seems to hit 87 celsius with stock cooler at 100% load.

More heat = Less life time. It's that simple.

Anything above 67.4 isn't recommended by Intel.
