I get the feeling this list was taken from a post I made a days ago and modified...

 

It's not bad, though I would want to change the motherboard, RAM, and SSD. The B650 Tomahawk is a fine board, but there are cheaper boards that have an identical feature set so it doesn't usually make a ton of sense. The memory kit is probably the worst offender, since with Ryzen 7000, higher memory speeds than 6000 are generally slower unless you're doing manual RAM tuning, and the timings on that kit are absolutely abysmal (plus Micron based DIMMs like these are very sensitive to the BIOS revision, where there's a decent chance that unless you do a BIOS update you'll blue screen getting into Windows) compared to similarly priced kits. The SSD isn't very competitive with the other options that exist nowadays from other competitors. With the money you saved on that, you can upgrade to a 7800X3D.

They're fine. Nothing special, but about on par with any given kit.

The problem is that even though the board might support higher frequency, that doesn't mean that you actually want to run it at the higher frequency. On AM5, there's two memory controller modes: 1:1 and 2:1. 1:1 mode has a massive latency advantage, while 2:1 mode will allow much higher frequencies to be possible and therefore higher memory bandwidth. However, due to how the infinity fabric works, the single CCD chips like the 7600X and 7800X3D cannot use that extra bandwidth, so there's no performance uplift from those higher speeds. The memory controller defaults to 1:1 mode for speeds of 6000MT/s and lower, while higher speeds will be in 2:1 mode and therefore perform worse. If you do a bit of tuning, 6200-6400MT/s is possible in 1:1 mode, but if you're just going to enable XMP/EXPO then stick to 6000MT/s:

 

TL;DR: Higher speeds are possible, but perform worse. 6000MT/s is the AM5 sweet spot.

The speed is fine. For the most part, SSD speeds aren't that important, and that SSD should be fast enough for most people.
