Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

240hz monitor and something that keeps over 240 fps 1080p

You can do a fair bit better for a system like this. 

  1. The 5800X doesn't make any sense. First, the 5700X is $50 cheaper and the same performance. Second, for the $310 you're willing to spend on it, you can get an i7 12700F, a CPU that is significantly faster in everything that you do. Both are valid options, though I'd probably lean towards the 12700F so it's what I'll be assuming for the rest of the build. 
  2. The AIO is very expensive for what it is. There are 360mm AIOs that will perform better for cheaper, and there are dual tower air coolers for 1/3 the price that will perform the same. My money would be on one of the air coolers, you can get them with RGB fans if you care about that. 
  3. The B550-F is a $180 board at best. For $250 it's a straight ripoff compared to other boards like the B550 Taichi, a board that has a ton more features and is just overall better but is $50 cheaper. Plus, if you go 12700F you'd need a LGA 1700 board, one like the B660-A DDR4 is a good option. 
  4. I wouldn't get a 4x8GB kit of DDR4 if I were you. First, it's really expensive given the capacity and performance that you get (yes it's dual rank, but dual rank is effectively adding another 200MHz to the performance, and you can get 3600MHz kits for cheaper than that 4x8GB kit you selected). Second, it limits your upgrade path in the future. If you're doing coding, 32GB is the minimum recommended, and odds are eventually you'll want to go 64GB of RAM. Either you'll have to buy a whole new 64GB kit if you buy the 4x8GB kit, or you'll have to just buy 2 more sticks if you go for a 2x16GB kit. 
  5. The storage config doesn't make a ton of sense unless you were planning on running the drives in RAID 1 for redundancy (debatable for whether it's a good idea or not, it is a pain to configure). 2TB drives of the same model are cheaper than 2 1TB drives and will perform better individually. 
  6. You can get a similar quality PSU for $30 less. 
  7. I'm not that into monitors or keyboards, so I won't comment on replacements, though I will say the prices on them do seem a bit higher than what I'd expect. I'll leave them but I'd look at some other options in case. 

Doing all that saved you $200 if you go for the same GPU, or you can spend some of that and get a 3080 instead while still being a bit cheaper overall.

That's a cooler I've never seem from thermalright. How's it compare to the peerless assassin?

AFAIK it's a Peerless Assassin 120 with bigger fans and RGB.

Best 240Hz on the market. Mouse is preference but changed it anyways. 5Ghz boost should keep up high framerates at 1080p:
