Your HDD will make PC operation feel slower, and load times will be longer etc... But it won't deteriorate performance to an unusable state.
SSD for boot is recommended nut not absolutely necessary.

Which RX590 are you using? Most of the RX590's run hot to begin with, even some of the 580's do.
The MX350 shows that it only comes with two intakes pre installed.
Having at least one exhaust, preferable two, is pretty much necessity. Without them, any air you draw in to cool your PC will just be forced into the case and bleed out anywhere it can but not always move across your components.
this will leave hot air lingering above your cpu cooler and in the gpu pocket. If you have a top down cooler, like the stock stealth coolers for the r3/r5 ryzen units, it's even worse as the air they push down through the heat sink will disperse through the areas around your motherboard due to not having exhaust fans drawing warm air out the top and back.

TLDR you need exhaust fans to draw warm air out and help pull cool air across your case for components.

An upgrade from your HDD to an SSD would improve your system and I also noticed that you havnt initiated the XMP for your RAM so it is running at 2133 mhz as opposed to 3200 mhz.

last time i went to bios i messed up whole computer and messed up allot stuff so i havent went back since i fixed it
Yeah, the BIOS menu can be pretty scary but it is the only way to enable XMP, your motherboard handbook should explain how to do it though.I have a gigabyte motherboard too but it's an x570 so im not sure if the menu is the same? But on easy mode it should appear right there on the screen,click on XMP Profile one, save and exit and it should be done. But I think most of your problems is because of the HDD.

I would recommend you to undervolt your GPU; it will probably reduce the temps significantly.

There are a lot of guides that show you how to do this on YT and some forums (including Tom's Hardware).
