I wouldn't waste money on that cooler and drop it.

Put the money to a better PSU (at least Corsair CXM series)

Wow, just wow. You really need to do some research before posting a build like this, with a water cooler for an i3 locked processor, I just have to wonder what you were thinking.

Thats the whole point of posting in this forum, for feedback on what to do and what not to.

No need for a cooler on a locked CPU, that PSU isn't very good.

This has a better CPU, PSU and case.

The other list is better and I agree with everyone else, don't waste money on that cooler.

Only thing that really needed to be changed/dropped was the cooler and PSU, not the processor, RAM, and motherboard.

Also that PSU is still not as good as the CXM from Corsair.
