Question Is there anything missing or anything that would cause a problem?

Just made this build and was wondering if I'm missing any components or if any of the components are too overkill or not good enough for the rest of the system?

Thanks, any replies are helpful
PSU isn't good.
3600MHz CL16 RAM is a waste of money. You are paying a large premium for 0-2% performance gain at best.
CPU cooler is too small for the 9700k. With a 125W max power draw you want a cooler that can dissipate around 190W of heat. The Hyper 212 is about a 125-140W cooler so at max draw the CPU will be in the 90C range which is too high.
Going 9th Gen is a waste of money overall. For a $35 extra dollars you can get the 10700k with is 8c/16t instead of 8c/8t. Or the 10700 for $35 cheaper. Alternatively the Ryzen 3700X $100 less than the 9700k and will have near equal gaming performance but better application performance.

Right okay so would this be a better build

I excluded the power supply because I'd prefer an educated opinion on which one to choose i.e. from you :D
Cheers

Here is another option that ends up $5 cheaper than your original design but will game within about 5% of the second build.

While the Samsung 970's are great SSDs, they are overall way too expensive. You will get similar performance from the WD SN750, ADATA XPG SX8100 or XPG SX8200 Pro, Sabrent Rocket with all of them being $30 or more cheaper.
The Ryzen 3700X doesn't need a cooler as big as the Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4. With a max power draw of 88W the 250W cooler is definition of over kill. Most people use the included Wraith Prism cooler first and if it proves to be too loud then they change it. The Wraith Prism is a 125W cooler so if it is too loud going for something like the Be Quiest Pure Rock 2 is an upgrade.

So with all them changes, will there be a problem with case size or cable management or am I all good ?
I chose a PSU from the guy who also replied on this post.

That is a solid build. You shouldn't have any issues with cable management. The Fractal Design Focus G is my go to "budget" case recommendation. The Seasonic Focus Plus Gold is a good choice on a PSU. It is a high quality PSU with the ability to do semi-fanless operation. That means that unless the power requirements are over a certain percentage, it will run without the fan spinning making it quieter.
