Hello all!

This is about the 4th or 5th time i've posted here lol. I am pretty happy with where this is at, just would like one more look over by y'all to make sure im not making any glaring mistakes.

I am a web developer for work and am looking to build a home workstation. Most of my day is spent compiling java, updating javascript code, and checking slack. I have a 1440p 34" 60Hz ultrawide monitor and plan on gettting a 27" 1440p 60Hz secondary monitor. I will be running Arch Linux as my OS and am very excited to get building!

Here is what I've got.

I like the build and think that it would suit you well, but you might want to consider getting a better CPU cooler just to ensure that everything runs smoothly and you have no problems with overheating.

I would recommend the Corsair H100i (AIO) or the Scythe Mugen 5 Rev. B (HSF).

I don't think too much needs to be done, although some reviews have stated that the Sabrent NVME tends to run at quite high temperatures, so I'd probably swap that out

Also, the 3700X's stock cooler is quite good, so you don't need to buy an aftermarket unit (despite the suggestions of the other repliers)

You could also cut back on the PSU (the rig won't really draw 600W)
