Additional Comments:
So I got RTX 3080 Founder's Edition and Intel Core i5 12600k and Im looking to build a computer around these two,
So far I got the following build and I'm unsure if the parts are compatible or if I can get cheaper parts without losing on performance, if so which parts can I buy instead?
I'm looking for an opinion on this build:

The cost savers would be this board.

Hi, thank you for your input so just to make sure I will get the same performance on both of the motherboards?

As for the cpu cooler, the one that you suggested actually costs more than the water cooling one in my specs, is the one in my specs not good enough?

Unrelated question, will it be possible to OC the system? Also everyone been saying that the prices are about to drop, should I wait till the end of July or just purchase now?

The Z690 boards allow for overclocking but not the B660 boards. You shouldn't have a problem overclocking that cpu with the Z690 board and AIO in your build. Not sure when the prices will drop tbh.
