My first build with help from my friend "YouTube"

First thing , I had a blast building this it only took me a few hours and it booted up first time, that feeling was amazing!

I did a ton of research and still didn't feel like I know to much about what I was doing , but we needed a computer and I knew I wanted to build one so away I went.

Its used for Interior design for my wife and gaming for myself. we had a "all in" budget of 800-1000$ Canadian.

I wont go over each part in detail as I feel like I wouldn't be saying the right things.

CPU- seems good , the stock fan is really loud when I play certain games. I am not sure if that's normal or not? seems fine with the design stuff so far. - I am not sure about all the temps and stuff i did have the ryzen master running I looked up temps and it seemed normal but i read that its very buggy and my EDC% goes all over the place not sure what that's about?

Mother Board- Was cheap but works, light are ugly greenish color, BIO's is confusing and not sure what do to with that lol.

Video /Graphics Card- seems to be ok , all games over 60 on like mid-high settings not sure if there is anything extra i should be doing to get more out of it or not?

Case- is fine, I just wanted white with lots of room for me as it was my first build and I was scared about things not fitting.

Power- I got mine from a Memory express and I can't figure out what one I actually got. it was cheap and all the cables were attached together and it really made parts of my cable management a pain in the ***. -The cable that goes to the GPU had another plug in on it and it dangles right in front of my GPU and it really bugs me but I couldn't figure out any other way.

Any tips for maximizing this build would be great. Any tips of where i could upgrade would also be great.

Thanks so much please be kind.
