Is there something I should change?

Hey guys!
 

I am gonna build my new PC next weekend, and I wanted to ask, if there's anything, that I should change before I order all the parts.

Additional Information: It's a white build, and I will first be using my old 3060 Ti for like 2 months, before upgrading to a 4070 Ti Super.


Here's a full parts list:

- Mobo: Gigabyte B650E AORUS ELITE AX ICE

- CPU: Ryzen 7 7800X3D

- RAM: G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB White 2x16GB 6400MT CL32

- Case: NZXT H6 Flow

- Front Fans: 3x Lian-Li UNI Fan SL-INF 120

- Rear Fan: 1x Lian-Li UNI Fan SL-INF 120

- Bottom Fans: 2x Lian-Li UNI Fan SL-INF 140

- CPU Cooler: Lian-Li Galahad Trinity II SL-INF

- PSU: Corsair RM850e
(- GPU (now): RTX 3060 Ti / will later upgrade to: RTX 4070 Ti Super)

 

I will be using the storage devices from my old PC. (2x M.2, 1x HDD)


My main tasks on the PC will be: Streaming while gaming, Gaming off-stream, video editing, image editing.

 

Keep in mind that it is a white build. Is there anything I could change to maybe save money or save money on one part to invest more into another one?
Let me know your thoughts. Is this even a good configuration at all?

To save money get rid of the A-RGB parts including the AIO.

This kit only has XMP profiles. It would be better to get a memory kit that includes EXPO profiles. I'd also suggest sticking with a 2x16GB 6000MT CL30.

One usually has to look at memory kit specifications to determine if they contain XMP, EXPO, or both profiles.

 

If memory serves:

 

Corsair DDR5 kits that have Z as the last non-numeric in the part number have EXPO profiles. A C indicates XMP profiles.

 

G.Skill Flare X5 and Trident Z5 Neo kits have EXPO profiles while Ripjaws S5 and Trident Z5 have XMP profiles.

 

Teamgroup T-Force Delta (RGB) DDR5 have XMP profiles.

 

Teamgroup T-Create Expert DDR5 include both XMP and EXPO profiles.

6000Mhz CL30 instead of 32CL 6400Mhz RAM if you can find,

7900 XT has similar raster performance and could potentially cost less, depends how much white version costs if you want white GPU

  • The Liquid Freezer is better but you're on AMD so even a cheaper AIO can work

Is it really that important to have AMD Expo? On the motherboard support page, RAM kits with XMP are also listed as compatible. And is 6400MT and CL32 really that bad?

EXPO is not critical, especially if the XMP kit is on the motherboard memory QVL.

 

7xxx CPU can have issues running memory above 6000MT. Of course one can probably down clock a 6400 kit manually if necessary.

So it'll be fine if I have a 6000MT/CL30 kit with XMP although i have an AMD board and CPU?

Is the kit on the motherboard memory QVL? Or do the motherboard specs indicate support of XMP kits?
