I don't plan to get a cooler immidiately after I buy the components(maybe after 2 months), will there be any major bottleneck?

 
On new AAA games you should not get much of a bottleneck because they can utilize many cores like on the consoles.

But for older games that use old engines, and games that require considerable CPU power, you may get unexpectedly low framerates with the FX.

Editing/productivity software are not affected. They use as many cores as they can get.
