Got some changes I would recommend you. Since you didn't mention that you want to use it for rendering/programming an i5-6600k will be more than sufficent. Also you kinda spent too much money on your motherboard. I prefer havin 16 Gigs of RAM, just to be sure and the price difference isn't too high either. Get an SSD! Just enough for your OS and most utilized programs. And please don't cheap out on the power supply or the case. This case is decent, got 2 integrated fans and has plenty of space for future upgrades. The PSU is Gold+, fully modular and has enough wattage for the future.

Cheers, Jeb

I would make the same change because since you wont be using your PC for rendering you wont need the i7.

Agree with you on the cooler. I just thought that it should be as cheap as possible. But Cryorig coolers are awesome! I myself got the R1 Universal and that thing is just a beast!

Thanks for all the comments guy! Will have a look and amend my choices.

Mainly is for gaming tbh, so if you recommend i5 I'll change that ;)

So I've changed some of it.

This case I can add more fans to it... SO didn;t go for the more expensive cooler, but if you're strongly suggesting I should get the universal I shall change to that.

Also will get a SSD later down the line
