Do you think that's over doing it?
Yes over doing it.

An aftermarket passive cooler won't be any better.
The ones with fans are noisy. Tiny fan with high RPM's.

You can if you want of course but you asked so my 2 cents.

Yeah, I think I'll wait and see how the board handles the temps before committing. The case has a lot of fan spaces in it too. I'll probably just purchase the fans locally though.

Just an update a few of the parts changed but it's finally being pieced together now. Just activated windows on her.
Boot time is roughly 8 seconds from totally off to fully loaded desktop.
I may go grab another of these ssd's tomorrow.
