Hello dear building pro's! I am fairly new to the PC-Building thing and would like to hear your advice about my build. I already posted some builds in Reddit and this is the updated version with added Feedback from the Community. My Goal is to Build a PC for 4k-Gaming with all the latest High-End Tech, while staying in 6k Budget. If a Component is overkill but adds some Performance Bonus I am willing to pay more. I would like to make it as future-proof as possible. That's one of the reason i chose this particular Motherboard. The other one is the great soundcard, but if there would be a similar Board (Performance-wise) with the possibility to add NextGen GPU's I would go for that and buy an additional external Soundcard.
As a side note: : I have two cats, so Dust buildup is sadly a thing, that's why I choose this particular case which I have read it has filters and great Airflow.
Thanks very much for all the advice!

Great system, if you want to throw your money away. $650 for a motherboard? For a 7800X3D? Wow. Also, if you're going for an RTX4090, it would make sense to go with an ATX3.0 PSU.
Is there a reason you're going with 2x2TB SSD, rather than a single 4tb? The larger the SSD, generally the faster it will be.

I just switched my case to a torrent compact and with the two 180 fans in the front it's good on airflow.

Noctua fans are a waste when you can get arctic 5 packs of p14 pwm pst for about $45. Same goes for the cooler where a peerless assassin 120 for $35 will do the same thing.

As for future proofing with gaming focused you're always a year away from a new GPU being released.

How about this?

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 7800x3D
Mainboard: Asus Rog Strix X670E-E Gaming WIFI
CPU-Cooler: Noctua ND-D15 Chromax black (I don't know if the ak620 would be better here)
RAM: G.Skill DIMM 64GB DDR5-6000 Trident Z NEO (CL30 40 40 96)
GPU: ASUS Geforce RTX 4090 TUF Gaming OC
SSD: Samsung 990 Pro heatsink 2x 2TB
Case: Fractal Design Torrent Black RGB
PSU: be quiet! Dark Power Pro 12 1200W Platinum

I dumped the case fans cause stock should be enough. Sadly there are no peerless assassin available to me, how about ak620? Im confused though cause almost every Benchmark I see the DH-15 is superior

Agree with all that. You arent going to be overclocking an X3D so just get a solid motherboard.

I'd be tempted to get an AIO water cooler, I'm still not comfortable with 1kg dangling from a motherboard.

I agree with the others on the motherboard being overkill but the ROG line looks quite nice so I get the appeal. I prefer MSI and the AsRock boards are getting a lot of praise in the Zen4 builder's thread in the CPU section.

While the Torrent is a great case you may want to check a little more on how well that 1200W PSU will fit. The Torrent has a top mounted PSU section that has a ramp where the cables come out of the PSU. It's fine for most PSUs, but when you get into the 1200W variety they tend to be deeper and you won't have as much room for the cables. Another case with great air flow and filters is the Lian Li 216. I used that case on my daughter's PC and it's great! The stock fans move a ton of air. We didn't add any additional fans. She has a 7600X with an ID Cooling SE226XTand 6800XT and her temps are excellent. No dust in the PC in about 10 months. We just vacuum the front mesh occasionally.

Don't worry about the cooler choice. Pick which one you like best and go with it. All of them will perform fairly similar on the Zen 4 platform. You might see a few degrees difference between a handful of coolers. Check out this video which shows a 7950X with different coolers from the AK400 all the way to a 360mm AIO. The performance difference is not that much between the cheapest air cooler and the 360 AIO. In fact gaming frame rates were identical between all the coolers.

@Joekerer SE226XT as @In2Photos mentioned does work well. I have one on my 12700K and even full tilt the CPU doesn't budge over 60C very much. It's nice cooler that just gets the job done w/ nothing fancy. I skipped the stock fan though and put the Arctic P12's on instead and put a graphite pad in between and idle in the mid 20's.

I've thought about reusing it in a potential 7900X rebuild I was thinking about doing for storage reasons. I've since hit pause on the AMD conversion while sorting out the drive issues I've run into w/ Micron x 2 and waiting on a Kioxia drive that's supposed to show up tomorrow.

The 226 though is a 6 pipe and the only gotcha is the length of screw driver needed to access one of the screws to clamp it down. Other than that it's a solid performer.
