do i really need an after market cpu cooler such as the cooler master hyper evo 212 on the i5-6600?
No, unless you're planning to do some BLCK overclocking.
The Intel provided one should be good enough
The Intel One is enough, but for looks and noise (especially noise), it's worth getting an aftermarket cooler.
Agreed. If the budget can allow for at least a budget cooler, it's definitely a good investment to make.
I was under the impression Skylake CPU didn't have any Stock Cooling.
the k versions
Yes if your overvolting or want a quieter cooler, no if you don't.
