Toss the not needed cooler and double the RAM capacity. Did you need any HDD storage to accompany the SSD?

I have a hard drive from an old computer, and I don't know if I need that much RAM, is it really that important?

I'd personally never go back to a machine without 16GB of RAM. I tend to exceed 8GB of usage more often than not, and if the build can come in cheaper with twice the RAM, why not?

Not losing anything you need anyways, as the 212 EVO is essentially wasted money

Maybe consider a semi modular PSU i know its not a seasonic but it is a pretty good unit http://pcpartpicker.com/product/3hkwrH/corsair-power-supply-cp9020102na

Any reviews to support that?

Better performance, quieter, isn't based on a old group regulated design, iirc can do above bronze where as the M12II can't, and it has a longer warranty. The only upper hand the M12II/S12II might have is having all jap caps.

Can't find the link to it from Jonny himself but the Vengeance is a CXM minus the CXM being single rail and the CXM may or may not have all jap caps unlike the Vengeance does.

Appreciate the reviews! I didn't know johnyguru had reviews for the CXM stuff out yet.

Remove the cpu cooler, get 16gb ram, I would get a better case, try get an IPS monitor and change keyboard to CM Storm devastator bundle (includes mouse)
