Hey guys

I am going to build a pc and I want to know if these components will be compatible:

Case : Zalman Z1 NEO
Motherboard : GIGABYTE B450M DS3H
Cpu : AMD RYZEN 5 2600X
Cpu cooler : ARCTIC Freezer 34
Gpu : ASROCK Radeon RX 5600 XT CHALLENGER D 6G OC
Ram : Corsair 16 GB KIT DDR4 3000 MHz CL15 Vengeance LPX
Psu : EVGA 650 BQ
Hdd : Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB

All is good besides ram and could improve on the drive. Ryzen doesn't officially support 3000 & odd things. Try find even timings, CL 14, 16, 18 etc in speeds of 2933 or 3200.

Have you thought about an ssd? Crucial MX500 TB 2.5" drives go for a good price.

Thank you, but I dont think that i need ssd.
Should I choose the ram based on the qvl list of my motherboard?

No problem.

Default speed is 2133 without XMP enabled. XMP will set timings, voltage and frequency automatically. Also fyi, Cpuz or other diagnostic program will only show single data rate, meaning 1600. This is normal if you see this, just times it by two.
