Soo yeah, i made a huge mistake, i bought a cpu cooler without reading the wattage and didn't notice that this cpu was a 125w while the cooler was 120.. will this create any issues? i also added a bought an artic f12 120mm fan, not the best but i hope it will help out the cpu a little bit. i'm just scared that the cpu cooler that comes with the cpu is better than this one that i bought.. what do you guys think? will it do the job?

Well, my psu died all of a sudden and the motherboard with it, i had the Asus M5A78L-M LX3 and since i really liked it, i bought the same motherboard. i have a 1000w 80 gold + psu, bought an fx 8350 and and the arctif 12 fan and the cpu cooler, the be quiet pure rock slim, i didn't check the wattage on the cpu cooler before i bought it.. is it gonna create any problems? and also, i got this new cpu cooler cause the original amd cpu cooler that comes with doesnt cool enough and makes a lot of noise

Nah, can't afford that, i'm just a student.. i'm gonna return mobo and cooler, buy a mobo that supports the cpu and a cooler that is better.
Mobo :
Asus M5A78L-M Plus/USB3
CPU Cooler:

Cooler Master Hyper 212X
 
Problem is motherboards that truly support 125w AM3+ are expensive. The M5A78L-M Plus/USB3 is one of many that are known to have problems, you need a motherboard with better VRM's than 4+1. Its also really hard to recommend such low performing hardware.
