Should I get a new cpu cooler?

I have an i5 6400 (so no overclocking) running the intel stock cooler. I'm wondering if I should get a new cooler and, if so, whether it be air or liquid. I can't get temps right now because I'm away but they're pretty good if I remember correctly. Any suggestions would be nice.

Why do you want a cooler then? Its a 65 watts tdp cpu so the stock cooler will be fine.

Now.. if you want silence, then getting another cooler will help as the stock cooler gets loud under load. I don't even know your case but if you can fit a 125mm tall cooler, the M9i is an excellent choice.

This would be cheaper but a more silent than stock
