You don't need an AIO. Get a good single tower cooler.

 

For the love of all things good and holy in the world, don't pair a 5000 series CPU with a B450 board. That's only acceptable if you already had the B450 and just want to upgrade the CPU without changing out the board, but for a new build, you're just limiting yourself for no reason. Get a B550 instead.

 

Trade the RGB on the RAM for faster clocks. 3600MHz CL16.

 

The Crucial P2 doesn't have DRAM. There's better drives to be had here, for the same or just slightly more cost. No reason to skimp.

 

I'm assuming you realize there's a graphics card shortage, and you either already have one or a plan to get one. And, that's the reason it's not on the list. Otherwise, know that the 5600X doesn't have onboard graphics, so you're going to need *something* before you can actually do the build.

-Cooler is overkill, stock cooler or a decent air cooler would be more than good enough.

-Motherboard is crap

-RAM is way to overpriced

-Swap the SSD for a SN750

-PSU is good, but overpriced.

 

You also have no GPU, this PC will not work without a graphics card.

No, they still are overpriced, 155 aud for a 3200 kit is garbage. The RM is just overpriced in general. Not worth it unless it’s at a really good price.
