I would advise against that cooler. Get an Arctic Freezer 34 esports duo instead.

That PSU is good. But 750W with a 1070? ehhh wouldn't a higher quality 650w be a better pairing? But no harm either way. https://linustechtips.com/topic/1116640-psucultists-psu-tier-list/

Here's a link to find best PSUs

Also why not ryzen 5600X? If it's for gaming, that will serve you better. $300 cpu

I would also suggest this, or the 5600X instead of the 10700K. Cheaper option is this. Expensive should be the 5600X if you're gaming
