It's mainly just planning ahead and just to make a decent rtx build.

i was thinking including an evo 212 aswell as changing the mother board to the b450 tomahawk.
I think that would be decent for overclocking the ryzen.

maybe changing the watercooling to corsair h60 for convenience

ah i see, it's just that i would like water cooling for my build.
I think that master cooler masterliquid 240 would work very well with the ryzen 2600

I personally dont see the point in water cooling a processor that is not at the top of its line.
An R7 maybe, but not an R5.
Instead of spending 70 on a cooler, you could get a 2700x for 20 bucks more.

If you like the looks of the watercooler go for it,but don't expect it to do better than a decent "low" priced aircooler. Some options,
Thermalright - Macho Direct 73.6 CFM CPU Cooler vs. Cooler Master - Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition 57.3 CFM CPU Cooler vs. Cooler Master - Hyper 212 Black Edition 42 CFM CPU Cooler vs. ARCTIC - Freezer 34 eSports DUO CPU Cooler - PCPartPicker
the EVO Black is already a very good cooler for that price. Put the RGB version in since it seems you like that.
Also with a watercooler realize it has to go into the front.

For a psu would a good 550watt already be fine,but if you insist on a 650watt would this be good and cheaper,

some good 550watt,
Corsair - TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply vs. SeaSonic - FOCUS Plus Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply vs. Antec - Earthwatts Gold Pro 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply - PCPartPicker
cheaper ones are good,the Focus Plus is better and fully modular.

Also when using that case add a 120mm fan for the back if you don't have one at home.

Any thoughts?
Yeah I know the watercooling may be unnecessary but. it looks cool am i right
I really like how the NZXT s340 elite looks with the tempered glass panel that covers the whole side of the pc
And the reason for a 650w is mostly just for future proofing

Why suddenly that 650watt VS? Which is just not that good.Think i'd rather look for these,
Corsair - CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply vs. SeaSonic - S12III 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply vs. SeaSonic - S12III 650 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply - PCPartPicker
all at least a 5 year warranty instead of the 3 years on that VS.You really don't need 650watt btw,just included it because you seem to care.

And looking at "future proofing" will parts usually use less than more wattage for the same performance.

For a good price 650watts,

Aagain a VS which is not that good,why suddenly cheap out on the psu?

not what you want a VS series in.Esepcially if for not that much more you just will have better quality. Take the Cooler Master EVO Black cooler and ditch the watercooler if you don't have the money.

I get you want to create your own build,but you make just make some odd choices imo. It wil be your pc so that's up to you,but spending over $60 on two extra led fans when you could just put one in the back would give you extra money for a better psu. The CXM isn't that bad,but imo is it worth to spend more on a psu if possible. Theat case you chose already come with two fans (1xback/1xtop) which should do fine for airflow with the cooler as intake at the front.

Realize that the cooler fans and the Corsair led fans wil look quite different in the way the led's give light.Might want to compare them via a video review.
