  • The Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU cooler is overkill for a 3600. If I were you, I would save a little money on the cooler.
  • For the same price as that WD Black drive, you can get a 1TB SSD. It will give you much faster performance.

First I changed the motherboard which is cheaper and should be compatible with the cpu out of the box (despite the warning). I also changed the ram to a cheaper kit with the same specs, and it should also sync with the motherboard rgb. I changed the sorage to. I made it completely ssd based, and made the ssds cheaper. I also put in a better gpu with a better cooling system. The reference blower style 5700xt doesn't have good thermals. I also put in a better and cheaper power supply. I also put in some rgb case fans for extra cooling and rgb.
