I5-12400F is a very good choice.
If you can get the non-F version with integrated graphics for a small upcharge, so much better.
It helps to have integrated graphics available if you should ever have a gpu issue.

Coolermaster hyper212 will work, but I had to install one and installation was difficult. Instructions were worthless, even for an experienced builder.
I think there are better 120mm tower coolers out there.
Noctua, scythe, bequiet for example.

Do some research on the graphics cards.
I seem to have heard some negative comments about the 6700XT units.
Perhaps 3060ti or 3070

On the psu, buy a quality unit.
One with a 7 to 10 year warranty.
Newegg has that unit with only a 30 day warranty.
Look at seasonic focus or corsair rm.
The cpu is strong enough for a much stronger graphics card; you might want to look at 750w which is usually not much more.
