Looking for feedback on this build

Here's the DDR5 version of that build with a few cost cutters. btw a 240mm AIO is more than sufficient for that i7. You can top mount this 240mm AIO down below with that Lian Li case for a clean look.

Nice, a 3080ti for 1099? Prices really are coming down lol. I would try to find a windows 11 key somewhere else, it may save you some money. 160 is a lot.

Is the ram a lot better? I mainly chose the ram i had for aesthetics

DDR5 is "better" ie its "faster" but it depends on if you want that at the price you will pay for an aesthetically pleasing looking DDR5 Ram stick. You can get one like i have for 90 (16gb), but its bare bones and has no RGB on it. Heres what i have in mine (x2): adata 16gb ddr5

Its worth it imo to have DDR5 esp. when your board supports it but youll be paying more for rgb ones, at least right now.

Also, this pc i just built is in the case mentioned above (Lian Li Cool Mesh 2) and its fantastic and very roomy and would work well with a 3080ti and an AIO or Kraken Z63
