Editing / After Effects Build

If someone could give me some advice on how this build looks and any potential issues I would really appreciate it! This will be my first build, so if anything here looks like it will create some difficulties I'd love to know your thoughts. Curious if there would also be a better case choice I could go with, or if this one will do sufficiently / if this cooler will keep things cool enough. Thanks!

That's a very expensive motherboard. You could save some money buying a cheaper one. Are you going to be overclocking? The cooler should keep it cool even with decent overclocking, but I'm just wondering. Also I don't like the look of that case very much, but it has good reviews so go with it if you do.

Only thing I wanted to make sure it had is Wifi primarily and some appropriate ports for hard drives (thunderbolt would be great but I couldn't find anything with wifi and thunderbolt) as I can't run cable through our apartment, is there any easier way to do this? (Sorry if this is an obvious question). Also would you recommend any other cases? I don't need anything flashy, ideally not flashy just with good airflow. Thanks ninja!

Glad I could help! I like the look of this case, and it looks professional. The motherboard I picked out has wifi, and plenty of ports (for me at least).

I forgot the motherboard can't overclock, but are you planning on overclocking?

You could always buy a PCIe wifi card, and just get a normal motherboard though.
