You probably dont need an aorus master if you aren't doing overclocking. An aorus ultra is a bit cheaper and basically the same feature wise. The power supply is also a bit overkill if you aren't doing overclocking. 600w is probably more than enough for stock operation.

I was looking for a fanless PSU, this way the fans will stay off most of the time
 
I think that PSU makes more sense for your needs. Basically, I understand your need to keeping things like fans off, to keep it quiet, but modern PSU's are really quiet as long as you are not maxing them out and you won't max it out with that at all.
I am not a huge Intel cpu fan anymore (although I do own several) because they are expensive for what you get from them compared to AMD.
