Does anyone know if the box standard fan that comes with this cpu is any good or will i be needing to upgrade?

A may want to overclock slightly.

It's basic and not very quiet. If you can get the OEM version of the processor for a few quid less then do so as it comes without the heat sink. You can then put this money towards something like an Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro (~£15) which is perfect for a bit of light overclocking and a lot quieter than the stock HSF.

Thanks for that ... i will take a look at this cooler, obviously the size of the cooler place an important role within most media cases.
