    Your ram is at 1333MHz. You need to double the number you get in Speccy.

    You might need to OC the RAM in your BIOS/UEFI or whatever it is.

    A custom loop watercooler can cost $150+, and with your temps I dont think you even need it.

    Still those temps arent bad, and you need a radiator for cooling systems, you need certain brackets, you need alot of time and patience unless you hire someone to do it which would probably cost $350+.

    A water-cooling system worth buying over an air cooler would be a lot ($400 AT LEAST)
    List of parts needed:

    Heatsinks (CPU and GPU)
    Radiator
    Fans
    Reservoir
    Tubing
    Fittings
    Pump
    Coolant

    You really don't need a custom loop unless you're going to go for some huge OC'ing on your CPU and GPU.
