Hi

I have been trying to design my first PC.

Here is my build so far [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

Are any of the parts unnecessary or are there better alternatives?

Is the stock cooling of the CPU plus the fans in the case sufficient?

The only part I truly have my heart set on is the case as it is gorgeous.

My main usage for this computer is gaming, it needs to be able to handle AAA games with twitch open on another monitor.

Thanks for any help you can give

That case is sexy and other parts look good, I'd add an extra fan if I were you things can get pretty hot when running games at high quailty.

Added in some fans, saw the case was compatible for another 200mm and a 140mm fan, don't know much about fans but these ones seem good, any thoughts?

Do you know if you could fit a cheap liquid CPU cooler in there as well? I'd go with two of the bottom ones if you could

Details on the case:
High Performance Cooling Advantages - Phantom's extensive cooling capabilities include 7 fan cooling options with dual 200mm, single side 230/200mm (NZXT only guarantees fitment with NZXT's FN-200), triple 120mm, and front 140mm fans. For enhanced control and expandability, NZXT includes dual radiator support, quad watercooling cutouts, and an integrated fan controller with up to five 20W channels.

So I could have 2 of the 200mm ones, if it says there is no space for a fan can you just work a spot for it?

It says quad watercooling cutouts, aren't watercooling systems quite difficult?

I don't believe it's to hard Id proably fill out some of the smaller fan spots two aside from the dual 200s if you don't do the CPU cooler

I didn't go for a CPU cooler because the Ryzen has a stock cooler, heard the cooler on the Ryzen series is pretty good
