Ryzen 5 2600, when overclocked to 4.0 GHz, performs basically the same as a 2600x. The motherboard with the b450 chipset along with the 240mm AIO should provide cooling and power delivery to overclock to 4.0 GHz.
The whole build cost me around $1000 excluding some aesthetic add-ons like custom sleeved cables and an RGB strip in the verticle mounting bay of the GPU.
