  1. Already ordered an AM4 bracket for the Noctua NH-D14
  2. I don't know if my ram will fit underneath my Noctua NH-D14 heatsinks as their website doesn't tell.
  3. I used LinusTech's PSU tier and this PSU was considered A-Grade.
  4. I don't care about cosmetics
  5. I don't care if it's a B550 or X570 as I won't run SLI or probably majorly overclock.
Anything else you would consider changing?

The psu,Seasonic updated focus series it's now called Focus gx and gm(the 2020 model of the focus you wanted to buy).Also the ram you can't get a g.skill rgb neo 3600 cl 16 for 130$ if you are interested.Other that looks really good.
Gm(120$)https://www.amazon.com/Seasonic-Semi-Modular-Systems-Warranty-Application/dp/B084TSPNR5/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=seasonic+focus+gx&qid=1612290748&sr=8-2
Gx (130)https://www.amazon.com/Seasonic-GX-750-Full-Modular-Application-SSR-750FX/dp/B077J9G9CH/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=seasonic+focus+gx&qid=1612290748&sr=8-1

What's hte difference between them? Semi vs Full Modular?
The cables,Semi modular has both the 24 pin and the 8pin connectors attached to it (Other than the 24 pin and 8 pin all the cables are detachable)
Modular has no cable attached to it so you can use the cables you want and throw the rest in the box (all cables are detachable)
So it's more like a better cable mangement
I personally have the gx
