First build, need some opinions

Budget (including currency): $2500~

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: A mix of games on highest settings, video editing, 3D modeling/rendering and streaming

Other details I have a list already made but I want some opinions on if there's any better parts out there I could use instead of the ones I picked out. The only question I do have is would I need to get some additional case fans to go with everything?

would get lower CL ram if the price isnt much higher, to fully utilise that 5900x

maybe also consider 2x16GB kit, so u can have 2 more slot for future expansion if needed

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment) ❤️

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I got a pair of T-Force Dark Pro 16Gb 3600 CL16 for a good price (in UK) which work very well with that motherboard, currently waiting on my 5900x to upgrade and if the Motherboard does not have the new bios the upgrade is very easy assuming you can populate the board to do it (not sure if it can be upgraded without a CPU onboard)
