I'd move away from stock cooling especially with a system like that, i'd probably grab something like a Corsair H100i and do some overclocking.

And considering you said you do not want to upgrade your CPU or GPU then i see nothing else really. You could always get another SSD and put them in RAID 0 for some extra speed. But overall it's more then a decent system.

as this is a gaming rig get rid of the stock cpu cooler and drop in an evo 212. the 30.00 for this heat sink will save your gaming rig from over heating when playing games.

If you have any interest in overclocking, get an inexpensive but decent (and quiet) 120mm cooler like a $20 Xigmatek Gaia.
