i would like to make this build cheaper, preferably without changing case. dont know if that is possible but any help would be useful. also if you see something i need to change that would be good as well. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/M79YmG

  • Corsair H100i: Not mandatory. If concerned about noise, aftermarket air cooling is more than sufficient.
  • Corsair RM750: Better quality and costs less. Seasonic SSR-750RM. And if the mail-in-rebate goes through, additional savings/bonus.
  • Faster memory, low profile and costs less: G.SKILL F3-1600C9D-16GAR

okay i looked for a different cooler. would a coolermaster hyper 212 evo do well?

Should be more than adequate. A common favourite. And since it uses standard 120mm fan, if you don't like it's noise characteristics, you just need to replace the fan with one to your liking.

The easiest way to make it cheaper would be to get a mid-tower case.

The H100i is not totally necessary but you could replace it with a coolermaster and get hyper 212evo and save 50 bucks.

You could probably find cheaper ram and psu but corsair stuff is amazing so its probably not worth switching.

Great build
