I'm a first time builder and this is my current build. It says on pcpartpicker that i might have to remove a drive bay to fit my graphics card. Will that be hard for a first time builder? and since im not planning on overclocking my CPU, will I really need my CPU cooler? or is the stock cooler enough?

The case is designed to have the HDD Cage removed. It shouldn't be difficult at all.

There will be no benefit to using a CPU cooler without an overclock, however they are quieter.

I see the your CPU is unlocked (the 'k' at the end of it tells me this) which is completely useless when not overclocking. Save some money and get the locked version (doesn't have a 'k' at the end).

Same with the motherboard, Z87 is for overclocking, H87 will be more than fine.
