Thoughts on this build. It's been a few years since my last build and I'm a bit rusty. I'm just looking for feedback on potential compatibility issues or anything I missed. Thanks!

Everything looks to be 100% compatible.

Edit: Scratch what I said. It's not a compatibility issue, but if you are going to get a HDD in a desktop you should really get a 3.5" HDD instead of a 2.5" HDD. The 3.5" desktop oriented HDDs should be faster, cheaper, and have more capacity (for the price). 2.5" HDDs are typically intended for a laptop, SSDs are the exception as there is no point to them being 3.5".

Thanks for catching that. I accidentally selected the 2.5" drive on pcpartpicker.com but I had the correct 3.5" drive when I was piecing things together earlier.

Alright. In that case I see nothing wrong.
