Here is my modified build (thanks for everyone who helped me, specially notifying me about PCPartPicker not detecting the RAM/MoBo incompatibility).
Any final thoughts? I am ordering my components tomorrow before it's too late (leaving soon the u.s.).
___ ORIGINAL POST ______
I am new to these forums, and hoping to get some hints before buying my components. I am leaving the U.S within 20 days, and I'd like to order the most expensive gear here as they're 10-20% more expensive in France, and some of them aren't even available :P I'll order those through Amazon (their services have never failed me, yet) probably tomorrow or in two days. I'd like some final thoughts and still have a couple of questions though :)
On the buildmeapc subreddit, User Guitars13 helped me selecting my components. I modified the list a little bit, and have still a couple of questions before committing to order everything from Amazon. I asked those questions on that subreddit, and added them as "comment" rather than "post" 14 hours ago, but my post (perhaps kinda oldish, 2 days for Reddit is a lot) is still unanswered. I often wait and have no problems with that, but unfortunately I am currently in the U.S. but am leaving soon to my country, i.e. France. I'd like to order from Amazon here, and take the components with me on the plane (btw is it safe??). The Amazon prices are much lower here than in France (20% lower). That's why I'm re-asking here before the shipping dates stop matching with my stay in the U.S., if that makes sense.
Here is Guitars13's list:
Here is his list modified by me:
These are my final questions:
-DDR4 RAM bars: Why is there almost no price difference inbetween the 16GB of RAM DDR4 from Corsair that Guitars13 picked, and the 32GB that I picked still DDR4 and from Corsair too? Is it only the 300 MHz speed difference?
-Water Cooling: I found this cooling kit. I dunno if I should try to got for it, or if it'll be way too hectic. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-kit-s240 Should I just stick with the Corsair? -Also, where is the water stored in the Corsair cooling kit, or is it a closed loop that does never need maintenance?
-Chassis: Does my new chassis election work for this setup?
-Power Supply Unit: The wattage shown by PcPartPicker is of 395W and the power supply of 700W: is that OK?
-External ports: Does the chosen MSI motherboard afford Thunderbolt technology? If yes, how to enable it?
-And most importantly: where can I find a solid guide for me to assemble this future beast? I found this one, do you recommend it? https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/How_To_Assemble_A_Desktop_PC
Thanks in advance,
