cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2
Not including a mouse (which will be included with one of my purchases), a key-board which I'm still searching for with a bundle with a mouse hopefully, and a monitor which I've found. A cheap $79.99 "18.5 but recommended 1366 x 768p; just wondering do I really need the cooler master hyper 212 evo? with everything I have here I'm around $940 so cutting the cooler master would be money saving like $50. I know I can do 1980 x 1080p graphics but I need to keep a budget of $900 and after I've payed off all of this I'll THEN start saving for a new desktop (perfferably a $150 monitor). With that being said if you could please answer my comments that'd be amazing! Thank you!! :) :)

If you are running a "K" chip and overclocking, you can use the stock cooler.

I'm not overclocking and I'm not using a k chip ( i don't know what a k chip is..) so is it safe to say I don't need one? And by safe I mean my computer will not over-heat and become a electric sauna...lol.

The K in you chip ie i5 2400k means it is unlocked. you dont need to oc that thing anyways.

Since your not overclocking, I would give the stock cooler a try...it should do the trick

do I really need it? because I'm on a budget. By that I mean is it really necessary for my system.
if I don't have it will it be louder and hotter by a lot?...
