Hello lovely people.
Althought this will take some time because of all the shortage stuff going on, id love some help what you guys think about this build im planning:

CPU: Ryzen 5 5600x
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S
Motherboard: MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk
RAM: G.Skill Trident Z Neo 36GB DDR4-3600 CL16
GPU: RTX 3070
PSU: Corsair 750W 80+ Gold (2019). - Heard the 2021 version had some issues.
Case: Fractal Design Meshify 2

Im planning to probably just buy pieces when there are good discounts. Getting a GPU these days will take ages anyways.

Im a big noctua fan, and if im correct the DH-D15S should be compatible with most (maybe all?) RAMs because of increased clearance?
About RAMs, there are so many different ones, i just pick the Trident Z NEO because iirc it had best reviews on pcpackpicker. It seems like there are many around same specs, but a lot lower pricings. Im really confused about what to pick here. Is there a performance difference with for example corsair vengeance or kingston fury beast?
From googling it seemed like the B550 tomahawk was a good pick, but i read some people had issues with updating bios for the 5 5600x? What would you guys suggest?
Then theres the GPU.
Id love to get my hands on the Asus 3070 Noctua edition, if thats not possible i might just go for the Asus 3070 TUF one.
I was thinking a little about a 3070 ti, but it might just get too expensive.
For the GPU, most important for me is noise level/ heat level, id like it to be as low as possible. Running my old R9 290 from 2014, currently make me go crazy when the fan goes up to 70% and reaches over 3500rpm on regular games (cleaned it re-paste etc everything a few months ago and it did drop some C's but still... T_T).

I wont be doing any overclocking. Its pretty much for gaming/programming etc.
Budget would be around 2k. If possible, not over 2.5k
Id love any advice from you guys about the parts, what could work better/more compatbile for example.

Thanks!

You won't regret using a Fractal case, Using the Meshfy C here and love it. Rest of your rig looks solid, can't go wrong with the Z neo, I went with Corsair RAM because i'm using their LL fans ans AIO and it lets me control all the RGB in one software.

Good look finding a 3070. :D

Yeah my current is the old define r4, really been good! :)
The motherboard is good to go as well? Seen a few different B550 types.
Haha thanks, finding a 3070 will be a big challenge
