Hello pals,


Current PC is on its last legs. Finally settled on buying a new one. I'm pretty happy with the parts that I've chosen but would love some advice to see if there is any compatibility issues or some areas where I could increase performance for low price increase, etc. Pretty sure the PSU is overkill but not a big price increase so not stressed about it always happy for suggestions though, also prefer to have Wi-Fi on the mobo because wont have access to ethernet for a few months. RAM also doesn't need to be RGB.

I was also wondering if ill need to buy any extra cables to be able to power/control the extra fans?
