So I'm new to building and was just making sure these would all be perfectly compatible.

The motherboard and cpu are compatible in this setup, the ram is not compatible with your motherboard. The ram you have says 3600 which is the speed in MHz, your motherboard supports up to 3466. You need to get ram that is any of these speeds 3466/ 3200/ 3066/ 3000/ 2933/ 2800/ 2667. The 3600 ram you have may be compatible but you won’t get the 3600 speed. Then you will need to set your ram in bios once installed to the speed that you choose out of the list I’ve provided, I believe it’s called A-XMP profile in the memory settings .

Ah I see so if I get the 3200mhz variant of this ram it will work fine? Or actually the 3000mhz because the 3200 is much more expensive for some reason

Yup 3200 should work fine, check in your motherboard manual which slots you should put them in and you have to set a-xmp in bios remember or you won’t get the 3200 speed you payed for.
