Question Does this motherboard and cooler fit this case? Anything else I need to know in terms of compatibility?

carbide spec-03 midi tower case (i currently have it, hence why I want to keep it if possible)

Noctua nh-d15

x570 Asus Rog Strix-f

Not 100% sure on the motherboard or cpu yet.

is there anything else I need to worry about in terms of compatibility, other than the gpu's size. :)

Once you figure out the motherboard and cpu you can use pcpartpicker.com to check to see if everything is compatible. If you go with a new AMD Ryzen processor, it will come with its own heatsink/fan.
 
Nice case.
The motherboard fits, both are ATX capable.
The NH-D15 will not fit. It requires 165mm while the case allows 157mm in height.
Most ryzen processors will come with a perfectly adequate cpu cooler.
I would try that out first.
