Dang, that's a hella tight fit! Looks super clean and I love the white black aesthetic.

Nope, it's a GPU cooling attachment made by NZXT. In the description he mentions it, look for "Kraken G12" which is the name of it.

Oh boy if that's the case (pun intended) then that should definitely be fixed. I'm not an expert on fan orientation, but maybe front intake and rear and top exhaust would be able to meet the standard for positive airflow.

1600af for sure. But go with the Ryzen 3 3300X if you can, it has better single core performance which is going to result in higher framerates in games than both of the cpus you mentioned.

If possible, maybe OP can try ordering a MSI mortar MAX mobo. For some stupid reason they’re only available out of the US but I imagine with some Amazon.uk or another way it’s possible to get one. However it definitely is a good point to consider waiting a bit with Nvidia’s 30 series cards and b550 coming out.

This one is very similar to srgo's, but it has a bit better performance cuz I squeezed in an RX5700XT by going a bit overbudget. I also decided to go with just 1tb NVMe, but the final storage is up to you. Also went for slightly cheaper RAM that's still 3600, but has higher timings. Hopefully with some RAM OC it can be lowered, but it can definitely changed out for a diff kit. Also, if you can afford to wait a couple months then I think it would be worth waiting for the new Nvidia RTX 30 series cards to come out.

IS that 5500XT a placeholder? It seems a bit underpowered for that kind of CPU, unless you're not doing any gaming and only going for CPU bound tasks.

MSI's sub $200 x570 boards are known to have poor vrms. Here's a link to a YT Video from Hardware Unboxed that tests your particular motherboard's vrm temperatures, and that board runs hot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7PkZwY9PWM The particular timestamp is 9:35. If it's not too late, you might wanna swap it out. Sorry to bring the bad news, but there are better alternatives for around $200. Here are some models with a reliable vrm: the Asus TUF model or the Gigabyte Aorus Elite or the MSI MAG Tomahawk are all really good, with the latter the best (but it's not available yet). Hope this helps!

I think two 140 exhaust on the bottom would help to even out airflow. With all 3 fans intake, there's probably a ton of positive pressure. (pls correct me if im wrong)

Dude you're going to get you're comment taken down. It's against PCPP rules to encourage 3rd party windows keys. Also, this build may have been built earlier, before relatively new products like the RX 5700 or Ryzen 5 3600 might've released.

Rather than watercooling, it's probably better to flip the GPU horizontally. The window is absolutely choking airflow to the GPU.

Nice clean build! Great parts selection, clean cables (at least for the front ;) and pretty powerful. Also, that Supernova G3 you got is a very nice power supply, and it'll last you a couple years before you would need to upgrade.

noice. Solid parts with great color scheme, and very clean for a first build. Maybe some sleeved cables in the future (you can get some on amazon for around $30), and this would be perfect! +1

IDK about airflow, but maybe they're there so that the hot air from the GPU doesn't linger? It seems like the front fans will be bringing in cool air for most of the components, along with the top rad fans. I honestly have no idea, just speculating.

Depends. Some people like to play fast paced FPS games, where smooth high refresh rate really helps. Other games like RPGs may not be as fast paced, and a higher resolution and more screen estate might help. To each their own, and the RX 5700XT is suited to 1080p 144hz or 1440p 60hz.

Phanteks P400a and the P300a look like good options. They're both good in terms of airflow, with a new mesh front, and have a decent aesthetic. Note that if you go for the P400a option, then there is a digital RGB version available and a non RGB version available. The latter is around $20 cheaper.
