Hi all,

I'm putting together a workstation which will mainly be used for coding/compiling/dev, running VMs, trading charts/software, and of course some web surfing and youtubing.
I do not upgrade regularly, instead I build once and let it last as long as I can make it.

As far as the parts list goes, I just want to make sure everything plays nice with each other and I'm always open to suggestions.
The mobo is not available, and I'm going to assume there will be more options by the time it does become available.
Oh, and I still need a power supply to go with this.
Thanks!

Thanks for the PSU suggestion!
Is there a non-water cooler that would work better? (I don't mind more noise if it means it'll do a better job)
That Noctua you've chosen is top of the heap when it comes to air cooling but these 13 gen cpu's are power hungry. I did see a few vids where people undervolted that cpu while not losing any performance and at the same time it cut down on the power & heat.

Maybe I'll just get someone else to install a water cooler for me if that's what I should be using. However, I know nothing about them, is there one or two that stand out? I'll use them as reference points when I look into water coolers in general.
