Hello :)

Sooo... I have 500to upgrade/rebuild my pc.

Current specs:
  • GPU - RTX2060 Founders Edition
  • CPU - Ryzen 5 2600
  • MOBO - Tuf B450M - Gaming
  • RAM - 2x 8gb crucial 2400mhz (those without cooling plates)
  • PSU - Seasonic Focus Gold 550w
  • Case - No brand cheap case
  • CPU cooler - stock amd cooler
  • M.2 500gb
  • SSD - 500gb
Now my build looks terrible. I have my pc under my desk so i didnt think about the looks. But i want to put my pc above my desk. I want to make it look simple. Not too much rgb if there will be rgb then its going to be green like the geforce rtx logo or just white. Going for a full black build with green/white rgb. Ive put together and upgraded build below so you guys can look at it and correct me or just write better suggestions.

Upgraded specs:
  • GPU - RTX2060 FE
  • CPU - Ryzen 5 2600
  • MOBO - ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING II
  • RAM - HyperX 16GB KIT DDR4 3200 MHz CL16 RGB FURY series
  • PSU - Seasonic Focus Gold 550w
  • Case - NZXT H510i (matt black)
  • CPU cooler - NZXT Kraken x63
  • and some NOCTUA NF-A14 PWM Chromax Black Swap fans
Feel free to comment better builds :)
Thanks
 
Why change the motherboard?
There is absolutely no reason to.
Both are on the same chipset which means same features.
Both are from ASUS,but are different series.
Both have 4 ram slots.
I see no reason to upgrade the mobo.
NZXT H510i has only 1 rear and 1 top exhaust fan (i dont count the front since it is uselles since its a closed panel)
I would go for something with more airflow.
I would get my personal favourite, Corsair 4000D (although my all time favourite is Cooler Master HAF X,but that is probably to old for you xD ).
3 RGB fans in a pack, 1 RGB fan for rear exhaust.
The AIO is not the best performer,but it is more than enough to cool the 2600.
CORSAIR H100i PRO XT.
So there you go,6 fans in a case.
3 rgb in front,1 rgb in the rear,2 on top for the aio and all 6 can be synced together using ICUE software.
Now for the ram, corsair vengeance rgb pro 2x8gb 3200mhz cl16 , 3200mhz cl16 is perfect for r5 2600.
Also is customizable in the icue software and can be synced with the fans.
So there you have your corsair eco system of fans and rgb,all synced up together, and when customized to green RGB they will look awesome.
Case ~ 100$
Fans ~ 130$
AIO ~ 120$
RAM ~ 100$
TOTAL ~ 450$ or 370 euros.

Thanks very much for your help :) . I want to change my mobo because i want a full atx one. it would just look better in the case.

True. the h510 isn't the best choice. I was looking at cases and the Fractal design Define 7 looks good too.

which AiO is better performing?

Both aio's are similar.
The x63 is 280mm though,but a r5 2600 isnt really that hot of a chip to require the absolute best coolers.
Honestly choose which one you like more.
If you really have to upgrade the mobo,go for the b550 chipset,mainly because of pcie gen 4.0 and they are priced similarly to the b450
