So I really like this setup. Decent price and looks to do all the gaming i want, WoW, Eso, swtor, dcuo, and steam games. My only question that i haven't found an answer for, Is if I add all 5 extra fans to this, 3 in front and 1 or 2 on top, will i need a splitter to run them all? And if so, will i lose the rgb in any of them?

I pulled the manual for the B450M Pro. Looks like it has a total of 3 4-pin (PWM) fan headers and of course, 1 CPU fan header.

So if you have 5 fans, yes you will need either a splitter or fan hub of some kind.

You can see it here on page 4 and 5

This will take care of that issue. You should not lose RGB capabilities but keep in mind the additional cables you'll have for RGB.

Other than that, your build looks good. I would personally opt for a faster SSD such as the MX500, 860 Evo, 660P, or even ADATA SU800. The A400 is terribly slow.

WARNING: You have incompatible parts. Your RAM will be too slow for your motherboard, and might not post. You need 3200 Mhz RAM. You can't have that many fans with that motherboard. You need a 5-way fan splitter such as this one: https://www.amazon.com/Way-Splitter-Cooling-Computer-Fans/dp/B07G5W28FC RGB won't disappear, but there is a chance the computer will recognize only one fan, meaning they will all have the same pattern at all times. Realistically though, your motherboard is really weak. It is really unupgradeable. Pay the extra $30 for a MSI ARSENAL GAMING B450 TOMAHAWK
