Default Stock CPU cooler?

Hi,
I'm purchasing a Intel Q9550 2.83Ghz CPU. I'm wondering if the stock CPU fan/heatsink is gonna be good enough.
I do gaming but not planing to overclock it.

By how much degrees Celsius does a decent aftermarket cooler run vs stock ones?

Also, is the stock fan gonna be a lot more noisy?

thanks!

stock is fine as the quads are thicker than the duals and will be fine.
