Is a cpu cooler necessary? yes, the cpu is potentially the biggest heat source in a PC hence most cpu's are sold with heatsink and fan.

For the rest - I am not sure where you have sourced these parts from but i would buy motherboard, cpu & ram from the same supplier and make it clear you expect them to work together
