B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Max would’ve been my mobo of choice since X57p really isn’t intended for this budget.

Could go Micron E-did for not much more, you get more flexibility with timings and OC which as shown by recent RAM tests to deliver a considerable performance boost.

MSI Max mobos will be our soon, there’ll be better options.

Getting 3000MHz up to 3600MHz will need 1.375V probably, I would just stay at 3200Mhz and see how much the timings could be tightened. https://youtu.be/CloyuBw_E_0

If he is mainly playing Fortnite then I would downgrade to RX 5700 and get higher quality components like an aftermarket cooler and higher PSU capacity for longevity and efficiency.
