  1. Just save your money up until you are ready to buy. By September next year the Ryzen 4000 series will be out. You should easily be able to get a cheap 3000 series then.
  2. What is the pc being used for ? Do you need a monitor ? If not what monitor are you going to be using ? Also why mini itx ? Do you need a small case for a specific reason ?
  3. If you want to save some money on the board then the B450-A Pro is a decent choice. You can get an adapter for wifi if you need that for around $25 - $30. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XJbCmG/msi-b450-a-pro-max-atx-am4-motherboard-b450-a-pro-max
  4. If you don't upgrade that often, then no reason not to go for the 3700X. It is a bit faster in some games.

  5. That won't work as you have an Asus motherboard which uses Aura Sync, and a Gigabyte gpu which uses RGB Fusion. So two different ecosystems. You might be able to mod something. The video below claims to get a Gigabyte card working on an Asus board (Haven't watched the video myself). Not sure if it applies to your gpu as it is a waterforce card.
  6. The Corsair as mentioned above. https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/wZ22FT/corsair-vengeance-lpx-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3000-memory-cmk16gx4m2d3000c16 Or Crucial Ballistix Sport LT is also low profile. It comes in White as well. https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/3BCD4D/crucial-ballistix-sport-lt-16-gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-3000-memory-bls2k8g4d30aesbk Other option would be to get a cooler that doesn't block the ram slots like the ones below. https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/PnPKHx/arctic-freezer-34-esports-duo-cpu-cooler-acfre00061a https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/gkyV3C/alpenfohn-brocken-3-606-cfm-cpu-cooler-84000000140
  7. Have you tried the other full length pcie slot just to see if that works ? It is only pcie 2.0 x16 but will still be ok to test with.
  8. You want PWM fans if you want the board to control them automatically. A 3 pin fan usually runs at 100% unless you set a fan curve. You can plug 3 pin fans into a 4 pin header though. The PWM version of those Arctic fans is the same price so you might as well get those. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/Kpprxr/arctic-f12-pwm-pst-530-cfm-120mm-fan-afaco-120p0-gba01 You can get splitter cables like the one below that can run two fans off one header. A couple of those should cover you for 4 of the fans. https://www.scan.co.uk/products/akasa-pwm-fan-splitter-supports-2-pwm-fans-from-a-single-motherboard-pwm-header The other front bottom fan can hopefully run off the bottom left header. You can get PWM extension cables if need be like this: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/30cm-akasa-ak-cbfa01-30-4-pin-to-4-pin-pwm-fan-extension-cable
  9. You can use fan splitters if you want extra fans.
  10. If you are happy to pay extra for the Ram then your call. Everything else looks ok. You could chuck in a cheap air cooler for the cpu if you wanted. Something like an Arctic Freezer 34 Esports duo. The stock cooler is pretty decent though. You can claim a free game with the 3600X. https://www.amd.com/en/gaming/equipped-to-win
  11. Same VRM as the Tomahawk. No issue running a 3700X on it.
  12. You don't really need 750W though. If you want to stick with a 750W unit then I would pay an extra £10 for the RMi. The RMx is out of stock anyway until Dec 13th. https://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-corsair-rm750i-series-fully-modular-psu-80plus-gold-certified-135mm-fan-atx It isn't that hard to overclock the ram. Have a watch of the video below first just to give you an idea. If you want a better version of the 2080 Super then look at Gigabyte's Gaming OC model. You get a 4 year warranty when you register it online. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/ckTzK8/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-2080-super-8-gb-gaming-oc-video-card-gv-n208sgaming-oc-8gc There is also the Asus Strix for less, but Gigabyte has better warranty support if you are in the UK. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/2jcRsY/asus-geforce-rtx-2080-super-8-gb-strix-gaming-video-card-rog-strix-rtx2080s-8g-gaming
  13. Only the middle board is for AMD. The other two are Intel boards. If you want a cheapish ATX board for Ryzen then look at the MSI B450-A Pro MAX. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07W837QSF?tag=pcp0f-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1
  14. You will be fine with 32GB Ram. Even 16GB is enough if you are just gaming. I would suggest the Crucial Ballistix Sport LT as it overclocks nicely on Ryzen boards. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/tJKcCJ/crucial-ballistix-sport-lt-32-gb-2-x-16-gb-ddr4-3200-memory-bls2k16g4d32aesb https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/7wdxFT/crucial-ballistix-sport-lt-32-gb-2-x-16-gb-ddr4-3200-memory-bls2k16g4d32aesc The 650W version of that psu would be enough. The Seasonic Prime Ultra Snow Silent 650W is currently on sale for £92.99 + postage from Overclockers. They also have the 650W Corsair RMi for a bit more if you prefer. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/seasonic-prime-ultra-snow-silent-650w-80-plus-platinum-modular-power-supply-ca-06k-ss.html https://www.overclockers.co.uk/corsair-rmi-series-rm650i-650w-80-plus-gold-modular-power-supply-cp-9020081-uk-ca-201-cs.html
  15. The MSI board has a much better VRM than the ASRock one. You might be fine with a 3600 on the ASRock, but anything higher core (3700x for example) will cause issues, so it limits your upgrade path. If the VRM overheats then the cpu is going to throttle. Faster speed ram doesn't mean it is better. You still need to look at the timings. A 3200 CL14 kit for example would be better than a 3600 CL19. The CL14 Ram is usually more expensive though, like the Flare X in your list. You can also easily overclock ram with the ryzen dram calculator so no need to overspend on it. I chose the 5700XT because you had a 2070 Super in your build. Of course if you can afford a stronger gpu then sure go with a 2080 Super. Cheap cases like the CiT are just really bad to build in, and the actual build quality/QA can be bad. Don't forget a case can last you a couple of builds if it is good quality. If you have a good budget then stick with a reputable brand like Fractal, Phanteks, Corsair, NZXT, Lian-Li or Cooler Master etc.
