I was thinking if the liquid cooler was really a must have for this config. I'm trying to save money now so it would be good to know. Thanks.
In short no. The only CPUs that require liquid cooling are the AMD Fx-9730 and 9590. For any others it's simply a matter of preference.
What will the build be used for?
The build will be used mainly for gaming.
Get a less expensive PSU. 750w is overkill for your build. 500w is the sweet spot. With the money saved up your GPU to at least a r9 270...preferably a 280 if you can swing it.
And to answer your question, no...Unless your going for really high OC's you don't need a water cooler and even then I wouldn't chose a 120mm rad for that. 240 or bigger.
No you don't need liquid cooling, the heatsink/fan you get with the cpu will work perfectly fine.
Build is a little imbalanced for a gaming rig (if that's what you're aiming for), they usually have a stronger gpu & weaker cpu, see http://www.logicalincrements.com/ for a quick reference.
Unless you plan to over clock the hell out of your processor, no. Get something like a CM Hyper 212 Evo.
Almost no cpu's require liquid cooling stock.
I've replaced the GPU and took the cooler away. Is it a high config for games now?
Thank you so much for all answers. I am not that educated when it comes to building with the right parts, so all the comments were helpful for me.
Looks good. Maybe replace the CPU with a 4690k and the motherboard with a Z97 one, so that they won't be outdated.
I see... I think I won't do that because it is too expensive for me right now :/ But, will it run games in a considerably high quality? Thank you!
Yea. It will work well
