I would make 3 at front for intake. Replace the CPU cooler fan. Place one fan at top and rear for exhaust.

  • No need for an AIO. Ryzen is limited by its architecture, not by thermals. This H7 more than suites its needs.
  • Better B350 board
  • Cheaper RAM
  • Better value SSD
  • Cheaper 1060

The reason I went for the slightly more expensive ram and gpu was for the looks. Same with the motherboard. Ssd I'll take into consideration and I really like the led ram .

I would place one fan at top and one rear both for exhaust. Replace the cpu cooler one. Put 3 at front for intake.

I would change the motherboard to what I suggested as it can better handle the six cores on the R5.

How come the Krait can't? I need the educating if you wouldn't mind...

Well, really, B350 boards have a hard time with anything more than 4 cores when it comes to overclocking due to its phases and power delivery. The Strix is one of the few exceptions as it’s one of the best b350 boards out there. Optimally, you’d want an X370 motherboard to better handle 6-8 core Ryzen processors.

I'm not overclocking you see. Would it be okay to stick with this motherboard now?
