Here is the build that I'm going with. I would like some advice/feedback regarding the parts that I've chosen. If the image doesn't load, you can view the PCPartPicker list here: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/YtcwMv

GPU isn't on the list, but I'm getting a 3080 Ti Founders'

I asked some friends and they were suggesting getting CL 16 ram rather than CL 18 ram, but I'm not too sure what they meant. They also said there's better types of ram I could get, too, and a better cooler.

I'd just like some extra feedback here.

Recent version of the board/PSU, tighter RAM, change the CPU cooler if you want, performance wise they are both around the same range. Solid build.

Thanks. Isn't liquid cooling always better though?
Depends on the cooler. Not all AIOs are better. If you are willing to shell out 70 quid for 5 deg. gain approx. then go for it. Here is a rough comparison...

What is the purpose of this build? Made some changes, to save some unnecessary spending, and better performance. The Arctic 360 is the best AIO on the market, right now. You do want 3600 CL16 ram, with Ryzen. Samsung 980 pro is a nice drive, but a bit overpriced.

Just chucking in an intel build that is cheaper and about as performant.
