Default New Heatsink?

I'm putting together a new rig with a 4690K. Just wondering what you all think about the Intel stock heatsink? Should i replace it with an aftermarket one? I don't plan to OC anything right away on this rig, so is there any reason to upgrade the heatsink?

Cool. I think i'll wait then and save up for my next wave of upgrades. I want to get the third monitor and second GPU and go liquid at a later date.
