Caution, make sure MB comes with BIOS compatible with 3rd gen Ryzen.
Cooler not enough for any serious overclocking.

What about these?

Asus Prime X570-P (AMD AM4) DDR4 X570 Chipset ATX Motherboard

CoolerMaster Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 120 AIO CPU Cooler - 120mm
 
If you need X570 features then look at them but a 3700x will run just as well on a good B450 as it will on a good X570.

I wouldn’t use a 120mm AIO, they are always outperformed by similar priced air coolers. The only time to use a 120mm AIO is when working in a small case and you don’t have room for an air cooler.
