Currently I have purchased a new custom gaming PC setup. This is what is currently in it. I would like any advice or opinions on ways to make it faster and run better. I originally was getting a Alphacool Eisbaer 360MM Liquid cooler but it would of been my 7th delay so they swapped it for the Corsair H100i is that a horrible downgrade? Should I change that cooler to something better? Also I was thinking of getting a m.2 Samsung 960pro maybe 500gb. Any other suggestions let me know please.

As far as the Corsair H100i cooler goes, flash with the latest firmware and you're good to go.

A definite "Yes" on the M.2 Samsung 960 Pro.

Everything else looks good.
