Apart from the case, the build looks fine! If there was one other room for improvement, that would be to get an NVMe drive as opposed to the 2.5" SSD, or have both, if possible. One for OS and the other for game library drive.

The airflow for that case looks horrid and I don't think the cpu cooler is going to handle that 11400F (which is a power hog) not to mention the VRM's on that Asus board look weak.

Thanks for the feedback!

The actual case I'm getting is this one, just doesn't come up on pcpartpicker

Thoughts on this fan instead?
Cooler Master Hyper 212X 82.9 CFM CPU Cooler

Also what's the VRM going to affect on the rest of the system?

Nice I might look into getting one in the future!

Doesn't require an aftermarket cpu cooler, but one can be added later if you wish. Definite difference in fps.

Kingston ram is decent, flash cards too as long as you stick to the grade 10 or better, and the better class ssds are really good like the A2000, KC2500 and Fury Renegade. It's their budget offerings that are pretty mediocre, but that's true of most manufacturers.
