OLDER build has been deleted and EDITED into the following:

Processor (CPU)AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12 Core CPU (3.7GHz-4.8GHz/70MB CACHE/AM4)
MotherboardASUS® ROG Strix X570-F GAMING (USB 3.2 Gen 2, PCIe 4.0) - ARGB Ready!
Memory (RAM)QUESTION : will the Corsair Dominator Platinum 3600 MHz 2x16 be compatible with this build? i saw this RAM on Amazon for £160
Graphics Card8GB ASUS ROG STRIX GEFORCE RTX 3070 - HDMI, DP, LHR I was also looking at the RTX 3080 but www.PCSpecialist.co.uk has stated that these are mostly ZOTAC and rarely Gigabyte, and that it is completely random which one i get
is ZOTAC worth going for or should i stick with the ASUS ROG STRIX ? its a £120 Difference, but i know for a fact that Asus Rog Strix has the best GPU Temps out of the 3070's
1st M.2 SSD Drive1TB SAMSUNG 980 PRO M.2, PCIe NVMe (up to 7000MB/R, 5000MB/W) OR should i go with the 970 ? is there a big difference?
Power SupplyCORSAIR 850W RMx SERIES™ MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET Should i go with 750W ? thinking if this is overkill or not
Power Cable1 x 1 Metre UK Power Cable (Kettle Lead)
Processor CoolingCorsair H150i ELITE CAPELLIX RGB Hydro Series High Performance CPU Cooler Any other recommended AIO or do you think this one is one of the better ones?
Sound CardONBOARD 6 CHANNEL (5.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)
Network Card10/100/1000 GIGABIT LAN PORT

I would also appreciate it if you could tell me if all this will be compatible with the new Lian-Li O11 Dynamic EVO
Would appreciate it if you could help me with the RED colored sections especially. All other help is welcome and appreciated too!

Hi, I have included it in the original Post to avoid any further complications when someone reads it ^^
The name doesn't have the brand included, (unless it's the Nvidia Founder's edition RTX 3070) ,if it is the Founder's edition definentaly go for the Asus Rog Strix one if you can afford it and it isnt too pricey for you

the Founders edition is ranked on the lower tier of coolinh

your view on it is appreciate, i will check with the live support on Monday to discuss this further.

The main topic of this thread still remains with the Motherboard and PSU Cooler
I know that the hyper 212 evo is a pretty good cooler out of air coolers, from liquid coolers i'd recommend corsair h115i

Noctuas are at the upper end of quality generally and they have an excellent mounting system that will not leave you rending your flesh.

They make dozens of coolers and dozens of fans. The fans noted for low noise.

Which single tower would depend on several things.

1; height limitations imposed by the width of your case. You need to research that at your case manufacturer's web site. Look for some spec like "maximum CPU cooler height" in millimeters.

2; budget

3; your typical use for the PC. If hammering it hard constantly, maybe overclocking, temps will be higher and maybe you would need a tallish and more expensive cooler that moves more air.

4; case ventilation and other case fans. If poor, the CPU cooler would have to compensate.

5; ambient temps. CPU temps will be roughly 10 degrees cooler simply by reducing your room temp by 10 degrees.

I have used a Noctua U12S and currently use a U9S. The latter is shorter and I had to switch to it because I got a new narrower case. Temp differences between the two are only about 4 degrees.

Well, lets stick to choosing the motherboard first i guess, according to the dimensions of the MB we can then start considering a Case and look at the dimensions of it i guess.

You may well be able to use a Micro ATX motherboard, which is slightly smaller than ATX. Any case that can accept an ATX board should also accept a Micro ATX.

Noctua makes many coolers that are designed for narrow cases (left to right dimension). Typically, you would use them only if you must due to your narrow case....they don't cool as well as a standard "tower" cooler.

I'd probably decide on a case first. Cases generally will accept any ATX motherboard unless specified to the contrary. Cases vary quite widely in build quality, noise level, weight, and the nuances of installing components. Quite possibly you wouldn't want to use the included fans.

i see everything's is good, just make sure once you have the parts on your hands and it could boot up, update the bios to the latest, and make sure ram is inserted on slot 2 and 4. then you're good to go.

You should keep to one post instead of making anouther.
For your build it depends on what the PC will be used for.

I thought it doesnt matter if its 1+3 or 2+4, Does it make a difference if its 2+4 instead of 1+3 slots?

Also i am really worries that it could potentially not fit into the Lian-li o11 Dynamic EVO case. I am looking to install 360mm radiator.

My apologies, just thought that if there is a complete change in the system conponents that i should just make a new post rather than edit and then cause confusion with the already existing "Replies" from the community

If you go AMD go threadripper.
I have an Asrock X399 Tai Chi with an AMD Ryzen Threaripper 2950X, Iceberg Thermal Fan for CPU, 64GB DDR4-3597 / PC4-28700 DDR4 SDRAM UDIMM (generic), EVO 860 250GB SSD, 4TB storage HDD, 1000 watt EVGA Gold psu. I started with 2 Asrock RX570 GPU in crossfire and it handled everything.
