Feedback for my first PC build

Budget ($1500 US after tax): 

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: War Thunder, Escape from Tarkov, Squad, DCS Steam Edition, and more.

 

I am currently using the ROG Zephyrus Gu502Du for school and gaming. I am planning on building a PC sometime this summer if graphics cards and CPUs are available at way more reasonable prices. I would love some feedback on my parts list since this is my first time making a PC. My laptop came with a 500GB M.2 SSD and I added a 1T M.2 SSD into the extra slot. I plan on taking out the 1T SSD and using it for this build. It is a Samsung 970 Evo. I want to go for a black and white build. Below are the parts I plan on getting.


Ryzen 5 5600x $299.99

Corsair H100i RGB Liquid CPU Cooler $169.99

Asus TUF GAMING x570-PLUS (WI-FI) $192.99

Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2x8) DDR4-3200 $109.99
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060ti Founders Edition $399.99

Corsair 275R Airflow ATX Mid Tower Case $89.99
Corsair RM (2019) 750 W 80+ Gold Modular Power Supply $124.99

Total cost is $1387.93 (before tax). This price will change since there are some sales going on.

no, 3600 will work fine with it. the cooler i agree is overkill, but if you want to go with the h100i, it can be purchased for a lot cheaper than 169.99.

What cooler would you recommend? I want to get an AIO. It doesn't need to have RGB, I was just planning on setting the RGB to white. Same with the RAM. So if there are way cheaper white AIOs then I could go for that instead. The ram that IHFyrz2812 was mentioning looks promising. 

Edit: bmx6454 Ok I see that there are way cheaper Corsair h100s. They are black instead of white, but for the way lower cost, I wouldn't mind going for that instead.

oh, i wasn't aware it was a white h100i.. still not 100% sure why, but white colored pc parts cost way more almost always. 169.99 makes sense then. the lian li galahad is also a decent choice if the theme is white, for a bit cheaper, also rgb: https://www.newegg.com/lian-li-liquid-cooling-system/p/2YM-002Y-00004

maybe someone can chime in with any other white aio suggestions. otherwise, the h100i isn't a bad choice for aio imo.

 

edit: found a refurbished for cheaper if you are willing to roll the dice: https://www.newegg.com/corsair-liquid-cooling-system-hydro-series-h100i-rgb-platinum-se/p/N82E16835181220

Should I just choose a black RGB AIO since they are way cheaper. I can then set the RGB to white for the black and white theme. My budget is $1500 after tax though and I'm not overbudget with the white h100i.

all depends on how you want the pc to look. i am in a similar situation, except im replacing an old black aio, with a newer white aio to fit my theme better. i personally would prefer the look of the white block and rad to fit the theme, rather than a radiator that doesn't really match but with rgb that does. if cutting price down is a factor, i would say a black aio, but if you are ok with the higher price for the sake of aesthetics, go with a pricier white aio. either way, i would wait for a sale if possible.
