I wouldn't use a 970 evo, in such a low budget rig. It's a great drive, but you could make other improvements, just using an intel 660p. Going with an x570 board will alleviate bios issues, that some are having trying to use B450 boards, with third gen ryzen. Water cooling is a waste, on a 3600. A decent air cooler is more than enough. Even the one I selected, is probably overkill, but it should be quiet silent.

Well, then maybe you could do 3700x instead?

3700 is a great CPU but i dont think its worth the 100 euros difference cause i mostly playing games.So i think 3600 will be super enough for me.

Yeah if you're just playing games with a GTX 1060 6GB a 3600 will work great.
If you want fast start times, a 970 evo is not a bad choice over sata SSD's because of how much faster it is and how little the price difference is.
