Completely solid build all around. Only 2 things I would consider:

 

- What is the recommended RAM speed for the Ryzen 5 3600? If it recommends a faster speed/can handle a faster speed then get a faster kit to fully utilize your CPU.

- Possibly go with the B550 MOBO. If the price comparison isn't too terrible, step up to the newest MOBO which will give you more support for longer and the ability to swap to a better AM4 CPU down the road.

The maximum RAM speed a Ryzen 5 3600 can handle officially is DDR4-3200. Anything over is considered an overclock and is limited by the integrated memory controller inside the CPU. You may get lucky with DDR4-3600 running properly or the integrated memory controller won't work at all and cause instability/crashing. DDR4-3200 CL16 or DDR4-3600 CL16 or CL18 are your best bet to pair with the Ryzen 5 3600. 

 

A B450 motherboard will support Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, which should mark the end of the line for AM4 socket. You don't need to go with an B/X5## board since this board will support Ryzen 5000 series with a simple BIOS update.

I5 10400fs are dirt cheap right now, so honestly that’s a better buy.
