    Looks like a perfectly good selection to me.

    This is a pretty good selection, I do recommend an X570 motherboard to take full usage of the 5700x and to help you with future proofing. Also a corsair AIO tends to last longer, plus their software and warranty support is amazing.

    Keep in mind you might need to upgrade your RAM in the future, depending on which games you are playing. 32GB is starting to become the new standard depending on which games you play and what quality.

    Hope its turning out well! Good job!

    Another important thing to consider is that Ryzen processors scale some of their performance with faster RAM so make sure the kit you get is at least 3200mhz but typically 3600mhz is not that much more expensive as well!

    This list is great as is! The only thing (completely optional, btw!) I might suggest is getting a 360mm AIO to mount in the front. The 4000D can fit the 280mm in the front, but i prefer to maximize the cooling if you are front mounting the AIO. This way you can overclock the CPU a bit more and let it run cooler. I also personally like the aesthetics better when there are 3 fans in the front of the case as well.

    Hey man, this is definitely a solid list, but I would definitely consider going with 32Gb of RAM for streaming! Something else I would look into for that Corsair case is the Airflow version. You will notice a big difference in airflow performance and efficiency. I think the 280 AIO is a great choice paired with 5700x, but I would double check to make sure the case will support a 280 AIO without interfering with the motherboard I/O shield. Best of luck! 😎
