Intel's current stock heatsinks are geared toward quietness rather than lower temps. (whereas AMD stock HSFs tend to be the opposite) I would try it without an aftermarket HSF first, especially since you can't overclock. The biggest gain in going with an aftermarket HSF over an Intel HSF is you'll have lower temps at roughly the same noise level.
