(yes I know it's as easy as lego to put a PC together so on so forth) but I want to get it built by someone because I am to nervous to mess with this type of stuff at the moment.

So what should I tell the PC builder to do? ask for wire management/updating drivers bios/ turn on memory XMP?

I have no idea lol so thank you for any advice or tips!

Don't break it.

Lol, for real, though I'd ask for thoughtful wire management. Maybe a BIOS update if you're not comfortable with it. Set up a proper Boot order.

As far as XMP, that's up to you. It's dumb easy to do that yourself so you might benefit from tinkering a bit there yourself.

Maybe you can ask about his past work. How many PCs has he built? Any photos? What does he feel about your current project -- has he done similar projects?

For your specific requests, I would tell him to make sure there's proper air flow to keep the temps down. In order to do that, you need good wire management, cooling, heat sink and a roomy case. Good luck!
