I'd shoot for a better cooler, chances are you'll be pushing it to the limit in terms of capability. TDP is an estimate & most chips can easily use more watts than the stated TDP. I'd shoot for overkill to make sure your cpu has plenty of room. Noctua or deepcool or 212 evo depending on the clearance of your case.. Better to save up rather than be disappointed and have to replace.
