Do I need an aftermarket cooler for safe temps/no throttling/most turbo boost/silence?
No. Stock coolers come ready to handle the processor perfectly. You only need aftermarket if you're over clocking.
Reduced noise and aesthetics are the only valid reasons for putting an aftermarket cooler on a locked cpu.
If this is for gaming rather than server applications or something I would strongly recommend switching to an i5 or i7 processor.
Edit: also $300 for a 760 is way too much, you could get a 770 for that.
While we're at it, this power supply isn't a sure choice - none of the new LEPA MaxGold series units were tested, so their performance is completely unknown. Until any tests arrive, assume they are nonames.
