I would add a decent cpu cooler, the stock one is a joke.  This one is inexpensive and did a good job at keeping my 2700x cool, it would be overkill for 11400 which makes it perfect.

Thanks! I was concerned about this but wasnt too sure since the case seems like can give lots of airflow, should i also do something about stock fans for the case?
