Do you already have this CPU in front of you? Does the CPU you've got not already come with a Wraith cooler?

If you are NOT going to overclock it the stock cooler will work fine so you won't need an aftermarket cooler.
If you plan on OCing it a decent aftermarket cooler will be needed.
I have an Arctic 33 eSports Edition (White) and my 4GHZ OC'd 2600 stays Very cool.
It idles at about 28-32C (depending on room temperature) and maxes out around 50-55C after 3 to 4 hours of gaming (while streaming at the same time to 1 or 2 TV's).
Arctic put out a newer version of my cooler, the Arctic 34 eSports DUO which comes with better fans so it should work even better than mine does.

PS
It looks a LOT better than all the other coolers in it's price/performance range IMO which is a bonus if you have a clear side panel.

You'd need the appropriate backplate in order to use any cooler, so it does have to be compatible with the chipset socket. If you can't secure it to the motherboard correctly, then it shouldn't be used. You could consider something like:

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Deepcool GAMMAXX 400

Which are both great coolers for the price.

I would NOT recommend that super cheap Hyper T2 cooler (it's only a 2 pipe cooler) linked to above unless you absolutely can't afford a better cooler.
It probably isn't even as good as the stock AMD cooler.
The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and Deepcool GAMMAXX 400 are MUCH better coolers as is the Arctic 34 Duo (which are all 4 pipe coolers).

Didn't even notice the T2 link. It was put there by mistake which I have now edited out - it's why it wasn't part of my actual post and was just casually sitting at the bottom for no reason. Thanks for pointing out!
