I know the cpu only supports up to or close to 2933 ram and is it when you use 3000 ram can you only push ram to cpu supported speed

AMD recommends 2933 but I haven't had any stability issues at 3200.

Sounds like a solid build. If building mid or late 2019 maybe take a look at the R3 3300(x) or R5 3600(x) when they come out. Should be similar in price with better performance.

Yes, with the most AIO's thermal paste is included. I would suggest air cooling btw... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23vjWtUpItk

Killer build! I'm using the same case and wondering if the GPU and CPU Aio cooler have good clearance? Does the CPU keep cool with the 240. Why did you chose to mount top Vs front. Kind regards Tom

Thank you! Yes, I have good clearance with the Gaming Z. Though with the AIO cooler being 280mm it only fits in the front of the case so it does limit GPU options (cards get too long). If I were to change one thing it'd be to go with the 240mm AIO cooler and mount top of case so more options available for GPU. And yes the AIO cooler keeps my CPU quite cool. Never above 65°C and that's with it OC'd to 4.2 GHz.
