Question Is it worth it ?

It's a nice case for the price (I have one) although if your looking at AIO's for your CPU there's better cases as the only spot in the H500 is in the front as Intake which will end up heating up your GPU if this is going to be a gaming system and smaller 120/140 are kind of pointless compared to larger air. It has a very clean look and is super easy to work in. Plenty of room for cable management and the glass side displays the hardware well.



The front case fans were facing the wrong direction when I took the pic, there fixed now.

Another really nice case around the same price is the Phanteks Eclipse P350X.

Both cases benefit from additional fans.

I took a look at the Phanteks Eclipse 0350X and I really like it but, is it good for air cooling ? The system I want to build is this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/CRistianLOL/saved/tMRTCJ

Your part list is set for private.

Either case handles air cooling well but only comes with a couple of fans so I would try to add in a couple of 120 or 140mm fans for intake and exhaust for good airflow.
Ok, I made the part list public. I was thinking of getting some 120mm fans but some don't have a 4-Pin connector and I dont evdn know how many fan connectors my motherboard has.

B360 motherboards will only run RAM at up to 2666MHz. Also, that power supply is poor quality. Get the SeaSonic S12III 450W instead. And I would get at least a 240GB SSD.
Storage: Kingston - A400 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($29.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: SeaSonic - S12III 450 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($39.98 @ Newegg)
 
For about $700 this is what I'd get.

Better CPU & better GPU.

The build could be even cheaper if you live near a Microcenter.

Thanks for the idea. I'll probably just buy what you'd get. I actually didn't think about a Gtx 1660.

Does the CPU come with a stock cooler or do i need to buy that separately?

There is a problem. I live in Germany so I can't order it from those sites and I can't find thr motherboard and the ram on Amazon? Do you have any idead for a replacement?
