please don't build with a kaby lake i5, ryzen 5 1600 is a better option or even the 8600k

I agree in the fullest. Besides that its a great choice. I'm a fan of 3 fan design (no pun intended), but it's up to aesthetics.

Three fan design will usually have better cooling performance due to increased airflow. Blower style is designed for smaller cases.

 

Edit: The blower style is a lot cheaper, so it's up to price or performance.
