The build is fine...for me, I would swap out the board and get a WiFi adapter + Tomahawk. Save a few hundred bucks that way.Hi guys
I have settled on a new build, would just feel more comfortable if someone had a look over it. I am uncertain of the ram and psu. Unfortunately for now I need wifi hence the motherboard. 3600 and case I am 100% sure of.
I intend to use this with my RX580 for now until the 5700xt aib boards are available or my patience runs out and I settle for the blower. I have a 1440p/144 monitor (I know I wont max games on that but I am happy to play AAA games at around 60fps). Edit: will carry over ssd and hd from my old build as well.
Thanks in advance

You clearly have so much money that many of us are under-qualified to respond.
Look, do you want people to apologise because they can afford certain PC's? Right now it just sounds like (very) sour grapes.
In all honesty you don't need a R2600 B450 motherboard either? I mean are you going to push this thing to it's ultimate limit?Rebeltech pricing -

The benefit of that particular memory is that it overclocks really well - Micron E-die. Should hit the Ryzen 3600mhz sweet spot quite nicely at good timings.
To add there is not much of a limit to push here, the overclocking potential of the 3x00 series is minute and not even the most expensive X570 mb is going to help.In all honesty you don't need a R2600 B450 motherboard either? I mean are you going to push this thing to it's ultimate limit?
Short of using a standalone controller I think you are out of luck as the entire interface is different, it's not a simple 5v/12v thing.So finally heard back from EK about my CPU waterblock that doesn't work with RGB headers on MB and was told to speak to MSI. Messaged them and they said to make sure it's 12v. All this time I thought it was as it is 4pin but after seeing this (see attached) it might be 5v so does that mean there is no way to get it to work with my MB (I have a commander pro too but apparently that only works with Corsair products). I have also ordered the 4 way splitter from EK which allows all RGB to connect to single header.
Will double check the wires when I get home but as far as I can remember I do have "D" version.
Any advice would be great or is there nothing that can be done?
Oh here is the key which wouldn't attach.So cheap mechanical keyboard. Was R199 at Takealot now R400???
It definitely feels a lot better than the memchanical Redragon Dyaus I got earlier. Only thing is it's not RGB but rainbow only. Also the fonts on the keys on both the Dyaus and this are a bit odd, difference is on the Marvo I can get new key capsView attachment 692169
Any pics of your build yet?Long time since I've built anything of substance. I'm hoping to it will be better than my current E8300, 760GTX setup.

Chipped away at it over weekend. Just waiting for NVMe’s to come in from Amazon tomorrow. Far from glamor shot but it gives you an idea.Any pics of your build yet?

She's in the UK so locally for her is what she listed. Agreed she should rather look at 580 or 590.
