    If not overclocking the stock sink should be fine.
    Though I would get a better sink that could take a larger fan.....pref 120mm.

    Don't worry too much about the timings. The better general performance boost you'll see with 2G will swamp any benchmark improvement you'll see with tighter memory timings.
