Not really, unless you overclock your CPU. So, you should buy one when you plan on overclocking. :)

Is that Microcenter price on the CPU an in-store pickup only?

Better cooler than the CM Hyper 212+ as measured by Xigmatek Gaia; it's also 6db quieter. I have them cooling my rigs (specs below) and have no complaints.
