Something like this would perform better for cheaper, a 12900k isn't necessary for just gaming

The h7 flow is a better choice if you like the looks of the h510

The motherboard is suboptimal for the unlocked CPU. A Z690 or Z790 motherboard would be better.

 

Use a 13th gen cpu. The i7-13700KF is a bit better than the i9-12900KF.

 

Instead of the 4TB HDD, go with a 2TB NVMe drive. Much better performance. Additional NVMe drives are easily added when needed.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

That 3060 Ti cooler is among the worst according to TechPowerUp, and I'm not sure where you heard a 120mm tower will be sufficient for a 12900K... that configuration would have given you nightmares between the throttling and screaming fans. I am very passionate about shaming spinning rust drives for their drawbacks, so you've been promoted to an equal capacity SSD. For strictly gaming, a 6800 is going to sweep a 3060 Ti and has far more VRAM for years to come. The RM850x is an excellent 850W unit - the one I picked is just a better price right now.

Swapped the CPU for the a 13600k as that will be better for gaming

Cooler with the better and cheaper PA120
Swapped the mobo with a decent z690

Saved on ram

2tb of ssd >4tb hdd

a 6900xt is like a 3090

Pop air is much better case then the h510

The D.F performs the same as the rmx
