Air flow is fine and the temps are great, no issues at all. You could put some extra fans up top but I didn't need to. Only complaint with the case is the rear exhaust fan seems to get off balance and make a loud noise for a minute sometime when you first turn on the PC. You can tap on the case where the fan is mounted and it stops. For what i got with the case that fan is a cheap fix if i have to replace it.

Get on Ebay and scour through the site until you find something. I was able to get 2 GTX 1070s for $250 each a few months back that were brand new never used. Not saying to look for a 1070 just using my purchase as an example. I saw 1080s and 1070tis for great prices as well. The deals are out there.

I just bought that same board for my brother for a similar build and if you can still get it for $104 thats the best bang you are going to get for your buck. It even has built in WiFi. I got it for $104 while it was on sale a week ago. Not sure if it is still on sale. My current build from a few months back is also close to yours and i went with the Asus ROG Strix B450 and really like it but it costs a tad more.

Yes it should work fine. I am doing another build for my brother in the next month or so with the same specs except using the stock cooler and i will post the results, I mainly bought the cooler for appearance but it did provide better cooling as well.

Yeah i have watched most of his videos and remember seeing something about that. i cant remember exactly but wont there be a permanent watermark and you cant change the background or did he actually get a legit copy just for free?

Yes it was for the CPU Cooler. The C7 doesn't come with the correct bracket for AM4. You either have to contact Cryorig for a free kit or buy it on Amazon for $5.

Being that I couldn't get the the last nut on the screw on the backside of the bracket, yes i would have went with something else that natively supports AM4 instead of trying to install an upgrade kit. Thanks!

I literally just built the same build this weekend minus a different case, Would you mind telling me how you got your RAM up to 3200 MHz? Mine is running at 2133MHz and cant find any XMP Profile settings in the BIOS. Thanks

Yes, the only thing i saw in there was this under AI Overclock Tuner. Maybe this is the same thing? I did change it to 3000mhz here but not sure if it actually worked.. I have went through everything in the bios and have not saw XMP Profile anywhere. Maybe this setting is the same thing, I am a noob.

Chapter 3: BIOS Setup Memory Frequency This item allows you to set the memory operating frequency. The configurable options vary with the BCLK (base clock) frequency setting. Select the auto mode to apply the optimized setting. Configuration options: [Auto] [DDR4-1333MHz] - [DDR4-4000MHz]

Check out Redragon keyboards. Probably the best thing you can get for a budget mechanical with the media controls. Specifically the k550 YAMA. $65 bucks

No I definitely understand, nobody wants to buy junk lol. According to their website yes the key caps are replaceable. There are some reviews on YouTube as well. Once I receive mine I will get back with you and let you know the quality

It's 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon? Alot of the negative reviews were over the color options. Idk just seemed like a good budget option with all the right features. All the big names are $100 plus

Haha no it was weird. I paid with PayPal and it completed the order and I got a conformation email and all. I had ordered two things together and the payment went through to the seller for the one item but not for the ram. A little while later I clicked through the email to see what was happening and it wouldn't go to the item and just said canceled or Something like that. Not sure if it was relisted or not since he had a bunch for sale. I messaged several times but no response
