Yep because he said the case is a placeholder for price not more - but the 2700 has no price, unsure
nearly identical list to his, just the tomahawks and mortars seems to have sold out because of shipment lockdown
HP EX950 seems to be a good compromise between price and perf
looked at the crucial MX500 , but it's sata
Sata for m.2 is a bit of waste, even more when the difference is only 10 bucks between nvme and sata
changed the case to corresponding option + going for a B&W build, as some like nzxt cases (i'm not one but why not)
Fans i'm in a bit of conflicting position
Either he gets an alphacool or swiftech AIO - soo HP (high pressure) series would be better
Oor he let's that room unused, where high airflow HF - ones would make more sense
Anywho, board should add range between 98-120$ up to when it comes back
3600XMP can run on 2nd gen , the Asus X370 Prime pro run it without issues
