You don't need a CPU cooler with that chip so I would get rid of it and use that money yo get higher clocked ram.
Also, I would grab an SSD over an m.2 slot as it will provide more storage capacity and you will not notice a considerable increase in speed with the m.2 over SSD.
thank you for the feedback, about the cpu cooler, i just can't live without adding a aftermarket cooler to my list, adding that the m9i has a great price/performance ratio, i though i added 2400 mhz of ram, guess heat got into my head, about the ssd over an m.2 slot, i was focusing on making a complete system without missing anything, i only added the ssd with the purpose of improving boot times.

No mine is still better sorry. and it has a PSU :-)
*******, heat is really getting onto my head
i though i added the psu......
but thank you for telling me that before it was too late to delete the topic
instead of going straight to post a list, tell me the issues, thank you <3.
Alright, the reason I did this.
CPU - The Ryzen 1200 is a great 4 core, 4 thread processor from AMD's new Zen line up. This is a good CPU and if you overclock it slightly you will see a major boost over performance than the Pentium. This is also good at multi-tasking due to the more cores. Here, just compare;
1200 - 384KB l-1 cache, 2MB l-2 cache, 8MB l-3 cache. Overclockable, slightly lower base clock than the 4600 pentium.
4600 - Cache 3MB L-1,L2,L3 unkown. 2 Cores, 4 threads.
B350M Board allows the ryzen to be overclocked to reach its maximum potential.
1X8 GB Stick of 2666Mhz RAM, faster than the 2133 the pentium supports but only one stick as the motherboard I chose only has 2 slots.
SSD and HDD. I chose the 120gb SSD from hynix because it's fairly good and has enough storage for your OS and main applications. And, the hard drive is the good odl WD Blue 1TB.
GPU - 1050Ti, a good 1080p medium - high graphics card.
Deepcool TESSERACT comes with 2 pre installed fans and has a lot of reviews online if you needed help at all, it also looks fairly nice and it has enough room inside.
EVGA - BQ 600W is 80+ bronze but it's slightly over kill watts wise, I might actually change that but the price is too good to miss.
Anyways, I just believe the new Ryzen prossecors and combinations are a lot better than the configuration you originally had. It wasn't bad, but for the price you can get more performance heh.
The Ryzen 3 processor isn't better than the Pentium. It's directly on par. When overclocked, it's still as good as it, and a little better in other scenarios.
Thank you for the support LostElement.
Well you are right, but r3 1200 is not better than this cpu unless overclocked, there's also the fact, which hurts alot that this cpu only supports 2400 mhz, we have the same opinion about the 1050 ti, about the psu, i don't really trust evga, but can't say you don't save alot by it, i don't like that case tbh.
well, gotta try to improve this build later.
When OC on the Stock cooler the R3 1200 can really perform, would recommend checking out Ponchato and Hardware Unboxed performance review of it.
