First time build advice




I'm looking to build my first PC and would appreciate some help looking over my proposed build.

I plan to use the machine daily for 3D modeling & rendering from C4D & Octane + others. Things that are important to me in this build are viewport speed, render performance and fan noise. I'm located in the US and my budget is $5000+ (thanks to GPU shortage :S ). I would probably consider upgrading parts in 3-4 years.

With this build do I need an upgrade on the CPU cooler and Power Supply?

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 3.4GHz 16-Core Processor ($1034.99)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 ($89.90) Is there a better fan I can get?
Motherboard: MSI X570 Tomahawk ATX AM4 ($262.13)
GPU: EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Graphics Card - 24G-P5-3987-KR - 24GB GDDR6X - iCX3 ($3000.00)
Memory: 64GB (4 x 16GB) G.Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4-3600 C16 ($364.99)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 2TB M.2 Solid State Drive ($299.99)
Power Supply: Corsair RMx Series RM750x 750W Power Supply ($143.19)
Case: NZXT H510 ATX Mid Tower Case ($128.63)

Thank you and I love the site! has been super useful :)
