[SOLVED] Final Thoughts on Build?

So I just finished up adding everything that I need to my cart, hoping for some smarter fellow smarter than me to critique this build, having everything co-exist in my case, and all that dandy stuff, the only thing I'm in need of at this time is a heatsink for the CPU, I'm not sure whether to go fan or AIO, any input would be appreciated.

So I'll cut to the chase:

CPU:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SXMZLPK/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Motherboard (Debating if I should use a x470 board or not, but I'm not SLI'ing cards so I think it's pointless for the most part. Only thing I could use it for is a the better VRM, but I'm still not sure):
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FKTZC4M/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

RAM:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07X8DVDZZ/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_3?smid=A3TOECTKC4OEBD&psc=1

SSD:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07K8X85Q6/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_4?smid=A2UXO5LPTDY3LN&psc=1

HDD:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H2RR55Q/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_5?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

GPU:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TYWQ1SW/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_6?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

PSU (ORDERED):
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07N7V8JM5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Case (ORDERED):
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N9JPUYW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I'll go down the list of what I need the PC for, and what my budget is.

Needed for: Mostly gaming, and some content creation through YouTube and Twitch.

My budget as stands is $1,500 USD. That's about the most I'd like to spend, and I will be buying these parts throughout tomorrow, and finishing with buying the GPU on Friday next week.

I appreciate any and all input of what I should change, besides the PSU and Case of course seeing as it's already on their way, but anything else I would really appreciate it!
 
Thank you for the help! If I'm not necessarily worried about the sound, so if the stock cooler can have decent temps that's sounds good to me.

I'll go ahead and send back the PSU when it gets here, I would usually stay away from Thermaltake PSU's but I heard pretty good things from their Tough series, so thought it would be a decent buy, wanted to go with Seasonic from the beginning but they were sold out, should have checked Newegg before ordering, but no big deal.
Tough series has many variants and the GF1 is one of the better ones, but too pricey. The Seasonic unit is equally good but lot cheaper. If you can spend a little over, then the ASUS TUF is a good quality board for its price...

Can't agree more with the Seasonic power supply - it does NOT get better than a Seasonic. Thermaltake, Corsair, etc do not make their own power supplies - Seasonic does, and they make the best. I have Seasonics that have been used for 10 years, zero issues, still put out above rated power on both 5 and 12v rails.

AMD cooler is really good, I dont see the need to buy one. You are better off buying a better motherboard for example.

I have a similar build. It’s a fantastic gaming pc. I’d suggest the Asus TUF too.

Again, thank you! Glad I had some input before ordering everything. Since it's only 30 bucks more, I'll order the TUF motherboard!
