Ones with a backplate are easier than the plactic push pins. The 2600K comes with a pretty good heatsink.

It's the old 980x hsf, but its still not great for overclocking to the chips potential.

Best coolers are Noctuas, but they cost alot.

But as I had said, yolure not overclocking yet, so youre fine.
