As others have said, ask again much closer to when you are ready to purchase.

 

Some comments on the build list:

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Ripjaws S5 memory kits are intended for Intel systems. They only have XMP profiles. It would be better to get a memory kit with EXPO profiles. Flare X5 is the G.Skill EXPO counterpart to Ripjaws S5.

Thank you for pointing this out because I probably wouldn't have noticed this until I was building the machine and wondering why I couldn't overclock the RAM

I probably should have thought more when making my post. It was more of a "How does my build look if I were to build it right now?"

The fan selection is schizophrenic. Consider using only one model of fan. This will harmonize the appearance of lighting.

I kind of realized this but I didn't really think about the implications of having 3 different models of fans in one computer so I've changed my fans to be more decisive and not all over the place. I've kept the Noctua fans since they are mostly for airflow, are (somewhat) cheaper, and are not meant to be seen (hence the lack of RGB) and I've replaced all the other fans with the Lian Li Uni SL-Infinitys since I like how they look.

 

A question I have is whether the fans would be compatible with my motherboard, or rather is my motherboard a good pick. I was planning on doing a Gigabyte B650, but I wanted PCIe 5

 

Thank you for your criticisms

The fans can use the motherboard A-RGB header if you want to use AuraSync to control lighting.

No need to spend nearly $300 on fans, it's unnecessary, use the stock case fans in something like the Montech Sky two
