Looks great to me, but I would consider a second gen Ryzen 5 if you don't do work on the PC and if it's about the same price, so you have the same gaming performance and a not-first-gen mobo, otherwise, this is great.

I'm not as knowledgeable on Ryzen, I probably need to brush up on where AMD is at these days. Here's what stands out to me:

-You've done well balancing budget with performance in regards to your storage. You clearly gave yourself a smaller but faster boot drive, then a decent HDD for mass storage. Great way to allocate funds.

 

-I suspect you could have gone without the RGB ram. There are a lot of really good looking ram out there and I'm not totally sold that RGB ram instantly improves the look of a build, but I digress on that entirely subjective point. Here's my real point: maybe the money could of been better spent elsewhere.

 

-My immediate desire for improving the look of the build lies with better cables. I'm a total cable-guy.

I hope I don't sound critical, I don't mean to :) The footage is quite good, and the overall look of the build is quite good! Job well done.

Not at all, great advice. I got the rgb ram for the same price as non rgb so no loss funds there and I went with a tighter timing (3000 mhz) because of having a Ryzen cpu. Thanks for the input. Any suggestions on better cable management?

Yeah I bought the CPU from a friend for a great price. Otherwise I would've gone with an R5 2600x.
