Thanks for your replies, I appreciate them.

I'd like to keep the aftermarket cooler because in summer my room gets pretty hot and it will help to keep the CPU at good temperatures. Also, it is not expensive.

Going for a Z170 + faster memories will increase the cost and I don't know if it's really worth. I'm not an expert so maybe you can tell me, whats better, 2133MHz CL14 or 2400MHz CL15/16?

Faster memory makes a lot of difference. Try to go for 3000MHz.

Do you think I need to add some extra fan to the tower case front? It comes with one 140mm in the front and another one in the rear. Should be enough to keep a good air flow or better add another one in the front?

It's perfect. Even replacing those with 120mm fans would be enough (like, if you had to for some reason). The reason is, you're not overclocking and you're going to have just one GTX 1070.



Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.

The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.

However you voiced your opinion in favor of the aftermarket cooler saying ''it's a must'' and that's essentially giving your recommendation. I would say if you want to run stock speeds and bring the costs down run stock. It won't be louder than your GPU anyways.

The aftermarket cooler was already in the system he was asking advice on. I did not add it as a recommendation therefore not adding to the cost of the build.

That was the context of my quote that you "just" responded to.

In any case, I'm sure that the OP has made up his mind by now.
