First you need to get a better PSU. Saved money with ram, for gaming it won't make a noticeable difference.

Water coolers start to make sense at 240mm. So save some money and get the Cryorig H7 which is a great air cooler. I included a black and red 120mm fan for the H7. Also corsair fans are not a good choice. I replaced them with better 140mm fans. 140mm fans move more air at less rpms translating to a much quieter fan.
