If TC wanted an i5 and overclock. TC would need an aftermarket cooler. Wouldn't it be better to just get an i7 4790k with stock cooler?

No because an aftermarket cooler + an i5 is still cheaper than an i7.

The 4790k's clock speed is pretty sexy though. Just not worth it right now. By the time it actually is worth it intel will have released even better CPUs.
