Hello there!
I'm looking to build my first PC, and these are the specifications I'm looking at. Please, let me know basically if everything would fit together!

Fractal Design North
Asus Rog Z790-E Wifi II
i9 14900K
Nvidia Rtx 4090 Founders Edition
Ram sticks:
32Gb (x2 16Gb) DDR5 Corsair Vengeance 7200MHz
M.2 SSD:
Crucial T700 2 TB M.2-2280 PCIe 5.0 X4 NVME Solid State Drive
beQuiet! 1600W Dark Power Pro 13

Still need to decide in cooling solutions that will fit. Was looking for MSI MAG Coreliquid P240.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

That's not the case you want for that cpu. You want a 420 AIO for that cpu seeing how it's a heat producing power hog that should only be recommended for high end productivity builds with high end boards. What will be the primary uses for your PC, what is your budget, what country are you located and what is your resolution?

Hi there, thanks for your reply!

That's a pity, I really liked the wooden accents on that case. The primary use for the pc would be gaming, 3D modeling, photo and video editing; and I'm trying to focus on future proofing as much as possible as well! The budget would be between £3000 to £5000, allowing for a bit more if needed (it would just take longer to be able to afford). I'm on the UK and the resolution would be 4K whenever possible.

Here's a cpu that's a bit easier to tame while giving you similar performance. You can go with a 240 AIO on the top of that case or a 360 front mounted AIO if you prefer water cooling.

Hi there!! Thanks a lot for your input. Changing the case for a Hyte Y70 Touch would make my original setup idea work better, wouldn't it? That case has better space and airflow, plus giving the functionality of the 4k touch screen to the build
