Not overclocking anything and 1080p monitor.

Your power supply is very overkill for the price of your build. Liquid coolers are better than regular ones. There is a 50 dollar corsair liquid cooler that you can get. You can actually get a 240GB SSD for around 30 bucks. What is your monitor?

Monitor is basic 1080p.

Do I really need a liquid cooler if I'm not overclocking?

So it seems like the best options are either stick with stock or go liquid. Of those two which would you suggest for me? I'd rather not spend the 50 unless there's a good reason to.

I'd suggest DDR4-3000 memory, and I'd probably try for a 500GB SATA SSD instead of the EVO. All in all it's OK.

Oh, if u r not overclocking it is ok. I agree with dark_racer. Keep the stock cooler, you can save money.

I was told that it's worth upgrading to at least a decent aftermarket air cooler over the stock even if not overclocking, is this true? And if so, is it worth upgrading to the Noctua over the 212 EVO which I was originally going to get?
