Just finished my very first build as of a few hours ago. Thank you to those that helped me decide on a cooler. I ended up just being cheap and buying a 40$ corsair h50 from bestbuy. Figured if I wanted to upgrade later I would just return it and move on.

I've been running prime95 for about an hour now on and off. Currently at 4.5ghz with a 1.35 core voltage. I've been averaging about 35c idle temps and full load temps at about 64-70c. I'll continue to prime95 stress it to determine some stability, but do those temperatures sound ok?

Build: cost was about 1200$ after everything

Seems okay to me, maybe a few degrees warmer than I would expect. You could always buy another fan or two fans for a push/pull configuration on the H50, it should give you a decent boost.
