    Just started to build a PC for me after building one for my son earlier this year and wondered if I will have any compatibility issues with the following products?
    Started building buying parts a couple of weeks ago after managing to pick up a GPU and have the following so far. Budget was around £1200 but have gone slightly over as some good buys came up.

    Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070ti FE £529
    Gigabyte B550 Aorus Elite AX V2 £71
    AMD Ryzen 5900X £350
    M.2 WD SN850 1tb £115
    Corsair RM750X £55
    Corsair iCue H100i Elite 240mm Capellex £76
    Dell 27” monitor S2721DGFA £255

    Will be purchasing a Meshify 2 compact case as used one in my sons build and I like it a lot.
    Unsure on ram but will be going 2 x 16gb.
    I have seem some G Skill C14 but unsure if I will have problems as it’s 1.45v?
    Also will my 5900X require a bios flash if it starts with s/n 2106 which I think is week 6 21?
    PC will mainly be used for light video editing and the odd gaming as it’s replacing my 11 year old iMac.
