I am new to building computers, though i know a few things. I have made a setup on pcpartpicker but i would like for you guys to check it out and tell me what you think. I would really appreciate it.

I would like the ram to be at least 8 gigs and i'm not too picky about the motherboard. Also if there is a comptability issue please tell me so i can fix it. Thanks

Also i am not a big fan of watercooling :/

It wouldn't be bad but that motherboard doesn't support your RAM.

I don't really need to have that ram or motherboard im just looking for something that is good and in my budget that will also be compatible.

I would up your budget a bit on the motherboard and get something that supports 1600 MHz.

If you're capable of spending that much I would definitely go with that board, one of my friends uses it and he's never had any problems out of it. He's the AMD guy and I'm the NVidia/Intel guy so we're usually arguing about that sort of stuff, but I have first hand observation of it in use and it's nice.

Alright thank you for replying, but i'm a bit worried about the placement of the ram and the cpu cooler. It looks like the cpu cooler might be too close to the ram slots making the ram be unable to fit. Here is the link to the updated parts

That's the same ram I have except it's 2133 and I have no problems fitting it with a bigger cooler than the 212 Evo.
