I have a royal kludge (this one specifically, which seems like the same board as the RK71 but wired) with brown switches, and it’s been working well for me! I love the RGB and the keycaps. It’s not hotswappable, and I find the switch feeling to be a liiiittle inconsistent across some keys, but I don’t really care. I wouldn’t recommend it for keeb hobbyists, but for some1 like me who just needs a cheap keeb that’s satisfying to type on, I recommend it. Just thought I’d give my 2 cents about the RK board I own lol!

Ah I love these kinds of builds – white airflow themed.

Cooler – all white Arctic eSports Duo. Fantastic performance, looks great. One-tier up than what I’d normally recommend for the 5600X, so it’ll be dead quiet most of the time.

Mobo – I like the pick. White theme, and lots of connectivity. One thing, though, is that you’d be sacrificing front USB-C if you went with this motherboard, which isn’t a major dealbreaker, at least for me, for the sake of the theme.

SSD – if you’re primarily gaming, the SN550 will be plenty for your needs. I stuck with your idea of a 1 TB SSD, which I like, but you definitely don’t need to throw away money for the 970 Evo.

GPU – whatever you can find for $1200. White themed ideally, like the Gigabyte Vision or the white ASUS Strix models.

Case – 4000D Airflow looks amazing and has great airflow, as the name suggests, with a vented front panel and two included (black) fans. It also has top-notch build quality and easy cable management.

PSU – I know you already bought this but holy cow. First of all, it’s way overkill for your components, but holy shit that’s a good price for an RM850.

Fan – I’d add one fan for more airflow and positive pressure, which will reduce dust buildup within the case. White of course. You can replace the stock case fans with two more if you really want.

Keyboard – I’ll recommend an enthusiast-level keyboard over a typical “gaming” keyboard 99% of the time. This RK68 has better build quality (stabilizers, keycaps, sound) than pretty much any gaming keyboard in its price range. The compact 68% form factor maximizes desk space for your mouse. It has options for Red/Brown/Blue switches so you can choose whichever you prefer.

Mouse – I’ll list a bunch of options for you. Of course, they’re all white:

Let me know what you think 🙂
