I am replacing a 15 year old dual core dinosaur with a new build. I am going to a Ryzen 5 2600. I do a lot of Photoshop work and no gaming. I do multi task a lot with Photoshop open. Do I need an upgraded cooler if I want to overclock using it in this way?

And while I am asking, is this a decent setup for my needs?

I am pairing the CPU with an ASUS B450 prime plus MB and 16 GB of G Skill TridentZ 3200 Mhz RAM. I will be using a Samsung 250 GB SSD for Windows 10 and Photoshop and a 1TB Western Digital 7200 RPM Sata III HD for storage and lesser apps. My GPU will have to be upgraded eventually. but it will work based on the QVL. It is a MSI Radeon R7 240 2G. I already have that in my system now.

I would appreciate opinions on my plans. Hopefully I've done ok as most of the parts are ordered and on their way. This is my first build.

Thanks in advance!!
