Question Building new pc

You might wanna get a 360mm rad for the 5800X,the new AMD cpu's tend to run hotter than the previous gen's,and i think it looks cooler in this big case you have.
If you have a 3rd gen cpu,or know someone who has it,then the X570 TUF u picked will work,but if you dont,then i advise you to get the mobo i picked,since it has Q Flash Plus,which bassically means u can update the bios without ram and cpu.
Other than that i see no issues

Thanks. Regarding the cooler, is that a good one? i know it is, else you wouldn’t have chosen it, but i don’t want you to have chosen it as it is cheap. If there is anything where spending a bit more, will make a huge difference, i am happy to consider it.
 
So i managed to get myself a 3070 and i am doing a new build. I also have a corsair RMx850w psu.

These are the other components i am looking at getting. Can anyone spot any issues?

I’m not really a fan of that case, in terms of visual aesthetics.

i was looking at the 5600x and was always planning on going for that, however i have dabbled with streaming in the past and if i were to go back, i think the extra £80 for the 5800x, would be worth its weight in gold.

thanks anyway for the input, I appreciate it.

cases i like are 570x, 500d se (too expensive) etc

Also this may seem silly but... will i be able to get temp reads? My laptop when i go into task manager, shows me the heat of my CPU and GPU, but my outgoing old desktop does not.
