    So I was able to get a hold of a Ryzen 5 5600X and RTX 3060 TI FE.

    I'm in the process of building a new rig and wanted some in-puts regarding the components.

    MOBO: ASUS TUFF B550M-Plus
    Case: Lian Li 011D Mini
    PSU: Corsair SF600, 80 Gold Plus
    AOI Water Cooler: ID-Cooling Auraflow x 360mm
    Ram: DDR4 Ballistix Crucial 3600
    SSD: M.2 Samsung 970 Evo Plus, looking for an additional 1TB SATA SSD
    Fans: Asia Horse FS-9002

    What I want to know is, what other components am I missing? Is the PSU enough watts for the rig? And any other in-put or suggestions for improvement. However, I would like to not exceed a budget of $1,500.

    I would go 750 watt psu and if you are planning on adding around 9 fans in your case, you probably need a fan hub. I have the lian li dynamic and I have 10 fans in mine

    Thank you for the input. I was concern that the PSU wasn't going to supply enough power, however, I believe the Lian Li 011D Mini calls for a SFX PSU and as of right now, a SFX 750 Gold Plus unit is hard to find. Would a SFX 600 be enough to sustain the rig?

    Personally I would go with this:


    600 watts may be "just" enough but ever in the unlikely circumstance the power draws above 600 watt, then you can probably say farewell to your entire rig. I always tread on the side of caution

    I am currently using a 1200W supply in my 3090 rig, I went for this because I don't really have a budget, but it is always safer to be have more room for more power

    Very true. Thank you for the link. 700W is definitely better than 600W lol.

    Also I would look into getting a power bar for surge protection, so if your power ever cuts out then goes back online your devices such as PC would not be affected. computers are filled with voltage sensitive components, a power surge could potentially damage all your components, a certified surge protection bar would protect it
