everything looks good except for your cpu cooler, it is not the right one but the cpu comes with its own fan so you should be all set

that is correct, if it does not come with its own fan, which it should, then just look for a socket 1155 heatsink that has a silent fan

Whether you need a CPU cooler or not depends on if you plan to Overclock or not. If you don't plan to OC then the stock cooler is fine.
