Stock cooler will be fine. It will be loud though. If you don't mind the fans in a computer case then you'll be ok. I would make the same suggestion as starwa1ker though. Hyper 212+ would be a great entry level cpu cooler even if you dont plan to overclock. It'll keep your cpu much cooler then the stock heatsink and the fan included on the hyper 212+ isnt really that loud. Still noticeable but not terrible. Very easy to mount, just watch a video on youtube if you have troubles.

I honestly dont know that much about the performance of the H100.. The only review i can find for it is this

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/...cooler_review/

How much are you willing to spend on a cpu cooler?

CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103065) is going to be the best bang for your buck. Other than that there is a lot of variability once you get into the $50-70 price range and it comes down to personal preference. Noctua is pretty reputable.

Air = Hyper 212+ or xiggy dark knight

H2O = Corsair H70, H80, H100
