    Hey @Monty

    I was noticing that you were interested in the Z690-A Gaming Motherboard from ASUS. This motherboard has the LGA 1700 Socket which is not compatible with the i7-11700K processor you've also listed. I'd recommend a similar motherboard with an LGA 1200 socket or perhaps going with a new Intel 12th Gen CPU once they have been released. Intel just announced the 12th Gen CPUs and expects market availability on the 4th!

    Everything else here in your build looks great as far as compatibility goes!
