Need Help Choosing Parts

I put this parts list together and am looking for some advice. I am completely new to building my own rig so if it seems like I have no idea what I'm doing, it because I don't. Any advice welcome.

    Hello @Newguy

    What is your budget and what kind of games are you playing?  

    There are definite changes to the build that I would recommend.  

    1.) The storage:  I think you are over stacking your storage by adding a 2.5'' SSD.  It's recommended to do either an M.2 or a 2.5'' SSD and a HDD.

    2.) CD/DVD Drive:  Your case will not fit this.  You will want to switch to an external DVD Drive.  Something like this;

    3.) CPU Cooler:  You do not need the Thermaltake CPU Cooler, since you already have the Corsair H60 Water Cooler.  It's a pretty solid cooler for your processor.  Since this cooler is an All In One cooler, you do not need it's own coolant, so you can get rid of your CryoFuel as well.

    4.) The Case Fan:  The Corsair LL120 is a great fan however it's a special fan that requires certain Corsair components that are not included and would be unsuable for your case.  You would need to get the triple pack LL120 for it to come with the hardware needed to get it to work.
