Current System
CASE: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl (Stock Fans)
CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K Haswell OC with Noctua NH-D14
MOBO: ASRock Z87 Extreme4
GPU: ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 O8G-GAMING
RAM: 2 x 8GB G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000)
SSD: Toshiba OCZ TR150 2.5" 960GB SATA III
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB 7200RPM 16Mb 3GB/s
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W

Upgraded System
CASE: Keep
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor (Bought today)
MOBO: New (~ 130USD) - Thought about this selection
GPU : Keep
RAM: New (~120USD) - Thought about this selection
SSD: Keep
HDD: Keep
PSU: New (~120USD) - Thought about this selection

Question: I noticed the Ryzen 5 5600X can support up to 3200 speeds on RAM. Does that mean anything faster will be bottlenecked?

Any builds would be appreciated! I added my selection of parts I have considered. I'm still debating on a cheap AIO Water Cooler or a good Air Cooler.
I know I have the Noctua but the thing is sooo old and barely fits in my case. I do have a window but I don't mind color mismatches or something ugly. I'm looking for Performance > Costmetics

Mobo: I read and watch good reviews about this ones (no particular order):
Asus TUF GAMING B550M-PLUS
MSI MAG B550M BAZOOKA
Gigabyte B550M AORUS PRO-P
MSI B550M PRO-VDH WIFI


RAM (more than enough): G.Skill Flare X Series 16 GB (unless you need/want RGB, then pick any of the other kits listed that comes with it)


PSU, I believe your PSU link is wrong, anyways:
