How good is the fan and heatsink that actually come with the CPU? I might put off getting the aftermarket one. I have no intention to OC it quite yet.

They are ok if you dont want to OC, but check the temps just incase its not doing its job. You can check in the bios, download speedfan, or everlast they all will tell you your cpu temp.

Yeah, it should be okay. However, make sure you take off all of the thermal pad and use some quality Arctic Silver 5 instead, so it is easier to take off if you do plan on getting an aftermarket one.

The stock HSF is fine but i recommend using some quality thermal paste like Arctic Silver 5. If you seat it good then you will have no problems.
