Hey, This is my first system I'm making. Purpose is a gaming and streaming rig.
https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/FYJfJ8
Any help will be much appreciated.

Things I need help with:
Where should I mount the radiator for optimal air flow and leaving clearance for my GPU?
Is there enough space in the case for all components?
Are there any compatibility problems?
Any key information Ishould keep in mind?

Thanks for the help!

Use a different case or change the AIO to a higher end air cooler. The only spot to put the AIO is in the front and for a gaming build it's really not a good idea to do so as you'll be dumping air into a already warm system. I would change the case to the Fractal Design Meshify-C if you want to keep the AIO.

Mount it on top as exhaust.

I would change the SSD to the Intel 660P 512gb M.2 NVMe, it's faster for a little bit more.

Would probably change the PSU to the EVGA G3/G2 or Seasonic Focus Gold 650W as it's better quality then the GQ.

Everything else looks good.

Thanks for the advice! As that case you suggested comes with 2 pre installed cans (one front intake, one rear exhaust) and I'm installing the aio as a top mounted exhaust, will I have to install any other fans or will that be ok?

Those should be fine, the front should stay as intake and the rear as exhaust but you may want to add another in the front as intake.
