The stock cooler is inadequate. My i7-8700 was going over 95C and thermal throttling. I replaced it with an Arctic Freezer 33. Apparently there is a backplate already stuck to the back of the motherboard so any replacement cooler needs to have the same screws. Also, the maximum CPU cooler height is around 156mm.
