Will I need a CPU cooler for this build?

Doesn't look like you will need one besides the stock provided with the chip. Depends on what cooling options the tower offers. You could always build and if the system is running adding too hot you could add some fans to the case or a air cooler (Cooler Master Hyper EVO 212 is a popular and cheap option, around 35 bucks)

This one has a cheaper mobo but a cooler. Will it run the same un-OC?

not unless you want one. the stock coolers provided can cool the CPU fine if you do not intend to OC. usually aftermarket coolers an investment for OCing. If you feel unsure i recommend this. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rrb10212pg1 or the EVO. they both are cheap and will provide great cooling for the price, but again unless your overclocking or the system is in a really hot location your stock cooler will be fine.

I live in Canada, so I DOUBT warmth will be an issue. Will not adding one make it really loud tho?

they're generally fairly quiet and honestly unless your buying a higher end cooler they will most likely be around the same volume. if anything a GPU and case fans will drown out the cooler anyway.

Maybe that'll work :)

this actually probably has similar performance as the stock cooler. Like i had mentioned above you may as well save the money and use the stock cooler. That fan is probably going to be louder than the stock and only offer slightly better temps. as Lodestone had said if the case runs hot simply adding another fan will be more than enough. Aftermarket coolers are mostly for OCing. They are built with the intention of keeping that CPU cool under all circumstances assuming you do not OC.

Will it make my stuff last longer?
