Not a big fan of RGB seeing how it usually adds cost and complications to a build but with that said I'm going to explain this build. Intel allows the board manufacturers to set their own power limits. Inside the bios of every B560 board is a power limit setting which allows users to remove said power limits. It's a round a bout way of OC these locked cpu's as it keeps them in turbo boost mode for longer periods of time and it's become the thing to do for gamers. What you want is a board with decent VRM's along with a decent cpu cooler. The VRM's in regards to B560 boards doesn't get any better than the two boards listed on here. You can go air cooling or an AIO. I put the air cooling in here for cost. 3200Mhz is the sweet spot for Intel 10/11 gen cpu's.

Okay cool, I’ve made a build up using pc parts picker what do you boys think this one would be intel build

Z590 board for unlocked cpu's and B560 board for locked cpu's .. change up to a i7 11700F for that B560 board and no need for a $175 cooler. Solid board but if you don't need wifi then you can cut the cost on that also. Same goes for the psu wattage. 650w is fine. Intel 10/11 gen cpu's don't benefit from 3600Mzh vs 3200Mhz. Samsung makes a solid SSD but there's cheaper out there such as the WD Blue. With the money saved you can size up to a 3060 Ti or even a 3070.

I like the fact of liquid cool is it really not needed?

I think we’re getting somewhere 😂😂sound though mate
If you go with a Corsair psu then look at a better one such as an RMx or TX series 650w.

On sale atm ...
