Heat/performance won't be an issue, but the after market coolers/fans can be a lot quieter. They're ugly, but I've switch all my non-gpu fans out with Noctua fans. Either way, it sounds like fun. My only critique is that it needs more RGB.

I've always heard from PC builders that mail in rebates are a hassle.

FWIW, this is what I'm using now (I don't overclock and probs never will). But this was from a couple years ago https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Vwd...h60cw9060007ww
Why do you use liquid cooling if you aren't going to overclock? A cheap aftermarket heatsink will be just as quiet and cool if you aren't overclocking and would be much cheaper.

Manipulating women...now THAT's hard. Probably because most woman have no clue what they like.

Yeah, I got a Phanteks LED strip to go around the border, but didn't add that in to part list. Tried to keep it a silver/grey theme, and will probably use a type of blue LED coloring for the window.

Ah, read that wrong. Typically RAM is bought in pairs to increase the memory bandwidth.

I have never gotten a rebate without a follow up Historically I wait a month or so after it's supposed to be delivered, then complain. They direct me to the cc company issuing the rebate and I go through 50 layers of press 5 for more options until I get a person who agrees to resend the rebate card. Huge pain in the ass all around
