Hi everyone I have a microatx pc and now i want to change it with an itx project.
My current configuration is:

I recently won an auction for a Silverstone Sst-RVZ02 and would like to purchase a suitable motherboard.
Gigabyte B450I Aorus could support a ryzen 3600? And 3700x?
I use the Adobe suite to edit FullHD videos, Is the ryzen 5 3600 equally good for video editing / gaming?

Thank you!
 
I suggest you look at some reviews of builds using that exact case.
ITX builds are challenging.
One issue is likely the need for a sfx power supply.
Another is what to do with a 3.5" HDD.
You may not be able to fit one.
A cooler less than 58mm will be required.

Any of the R5 processors with 12 threads are going to perform about the same.
Probably not worth changing.

Ok perfect.

But my old Toshiba p300 2TB 3.5 "HDD doesn't fit in the case.
Using an external SATA converter cable is not detected ... does it need to be powered?
Do I need to buy a powered external box?

A 3.5" HDD needs more power than a single usb port can deliver.
You will need a powered adapter or possibly an adapter with two usb connections.
If you will use this hdd on a regular basis, buy a powered usb enclosure. They are not expensive.
If the hdd is to be used as a backup device(a good thing) look for an enclosure with an on/off switch to isolate the device after backing things up.

As to coolers, noctua nh-l9I is one of the best.
Scythe big shuriken 2 would also work.
