One thing curious about.. I threw in the CPU Cooler, but have no idea if I need it, or conversely should also perhaps add an additional 120mm case fan.. or just the fan and drop the cooler, etc.. How does one know/determine how much or type of cooling req'd?

All "retail" Intel box processors come with a stock heatsink/fan combo. If you're not planning on overclocking it should be completely sufficient. An aftermarket cooler can be quieter which may be a plus for you.
