This is the new build I received help with on this forum. Just wondering if anyone has had personal experiences or knowledge of any of these components and any tricks, tips or pitfalls to watch out for when we are ready to assemble this system. Also, could anyone direct me to a DIY guide for a build like this. I used to have one bookmarked but that was three years ago and I could use some help with these newer components anyway especially the CPU placement with the cooler.

Thanks in advance!
