Thank you for your suggestions! I have never overclocked before and so I am hesitant to go that route but I will certainly look into it and consider it as I am fully aware of it's benefits.

I did attempt to piece together the 1700X with the Fuma and the ASRock X370 Tiachi motherboard on this website and I received this notice "The Scythe - FUMA Rev.B 79 CFM CPU Cooler may require a separately available mounting adapter to fit the ASRock - X370 Taichi ATX AM4 Motherboard." Would this be an issue or would I simply need to buy a small piece to make them compatible?

I really appreciate all your help with this as it has given me a lot to consider and helped me tremendously.

After a good deal more research and looking into the parts you recommended, I came up with this slightly altered build. The Ryzen 7 seems like the better route for me and this new build even cuts down on the cost slightly allowing me more dough to throw at fans or cooling should I need it.

Thank you for that recommendation on the PSU.

What processor would you recommend upgrading to to sub out the 9600k then to better suit streaming?

I had no idea, thank you very much. If I stuck with this case are there any case fans you would recommend or would it be optimal to search for a new case entirely instead?

The only reason I'm going with that specific keyboard is that it comes in a bundle with the headset and mouse listed for only $100. If I end up not liking it I can switch that out no problem. Thank you though I appreciate it!
