Everything A OK but please plase done pay $190 for 3 fans x 2. Only say this because corsair will get the more fans at cheaper price. Bought 2 x 3 pak was $125 not long ago. Still no recover from this. Also how you check price on cooler it say no price? Hoping it has cool digital block. Like the idea of 4k gaming. 011D is amazing I just build a XL version. Much magic happening at lian li in taiwan.. So you water cool cpu but no gpu at this time?

7.1/10 because fan scalper pricing they have no mercy

Click on the actual links to the fans. Partpicker prefers to display pricing for offers that aren't sold out.
If all links are sold out, it'll show 'no prices available' unless you manually enter the pricing.
Oh thanks I look at price now. I am no good at AIO but they seem interesting pump inside. How long they generally warantee these?

I would get a different RAM kit.
That kit is model #: CMW32GX4M2C3200C16 which is NOT optimized for AMD Ryzen builds.
Some LPX kits are suitable for AMD use, but Corsair doesn't really mark them specifically as such on the packaging.
There is some information on their website, but the key thing to look for, is a Z in the model name, such as CMK16GX4M2Z5000C18.
That means the kit should work with AMD. If you get a kit without the Z in the model name, it might not work.

Here are a few of the AMD Optimized "Z" kits I have seen:
CMK16GX4M2Z3200C16
CMK16GX4M2Z3466C16
CMK16GX4M2Z3600C14
CMK32GX4M2Z3600C18
That kit is: CMW32GX4M2C3200C16 (No Z)
So it may not run at it's rated speed of 3200.

I suggest you look for a 3600 kit that is stated to be compatible with the MB and CPU you are buying.

Scrap the Arctic Silver. The cooler comes with paste which is either the same or often slightly better.

If you feel you must have, just in case you need to re apply, there are better choices. Prolimatech pk3, gelid extreme, Grizzly Kryonaut, Noctua NT-H1 or H2, even Arctic Mx-4.

Make sure you if you do redo, apply correctly for Ryzens, the old preferred method of a pea sized blob is no longer acceptable. Instead use the spreader method to lightly coat the entire cpu

Good point! No Arctic Silver needed. It's been awhile since my last build forgot the cooler would have some with it :)
