I'd pick a WD Black SSD for the main drive in place of that Kingston. Throw away that PSU, you should look at nothing less than a Seasonic unit at this point considering how much your build costs. Rest of the specs look fine/good to go! You could change the PSU and cooling to Corsair's products and keep it an all corsair affair(outside of the rams, I love Klevv rams).

Many thanks! Adjusted psu.

Is wd black just faster?

One thing you need to change for certain is to pick a single matched 32gb ram kit.
Ram is sold in kits for a reason.
A motherboard must manage all the ram using the same specs of voltage, cas and speed.
The internal workings are designed for the capacity of the kit.
Ram from the same vendor and part number can be made up of differing manufacturing components over time.
Some motherboards, particularly amd can be very sensitive to this.
This is more difficult when more sticks are involved.
Then, whatever ram you pick, check the height of the heat spreaders.
Noctua NH-D15 is an outstanding cooler, but may have ram clearance issues.

An equally good alternative without such issues is the noctua NH-D15s.
Performance and price should be similar;

Thanks a lot.

(L) 133 x (W) 33 x (H) 6 mm that's the size of the ram so I think it should fit as I read that the front fan of the model cooler I picked is adjustable?

Re Ram sticks. Did not know this!
