The 10700K makes absolutely no sense and has been labelled dead on arrival by 99% of reviewers. It's more expensive than the 12-core 3900X, needs an expensive cooler and can't even compete against the 12-core Ryzen options. The 3700X in contrast is MUCH cheaper for virtually the same performance.

Here - VASTLY superior motherboard
better power supply and MUCH better SSD/HDD

I also removed the AIO - Ryzen is very efficient so even the stock cooler is more than enough

Thank you for helping. I'm not really into gaming too much. So maybe swap out the motherboard? Or idk. I'm fairly new to pc building so you tell me. my budget would be around 1300-1350 euros. Also I think I will go with a greater wattage power supply for upgrading headroom.

I'm more into multi-threaded performance as I won't make this machine a "gaming" machine. It will be for work/sometimes gaming ofc.

The board you had is mediocre - the X570 TuF is one of the best motherboards on the consumer grade market (it's incredibly good)

The power supply is fine - get 650W if you're REALLY worried but that system wont use more than 400W

The 10700K itself is not good value or good for what it is - the 10600K is superior in games and Ryzen alternatives are superior for everything else.

Ok thank you. I'm thinking of removing the hard drive. Because I will put everything into the ssd. After I'm done with my projects etc., I'm going to archive them.

You'll be fine with just the SSD - it's a good one too. The Sabrent Rocket is also a great PCIe 4.0 model if its available at a good price.

As for that guy - ignore him :)

Thank you for being nice and helpful. So you think a 600W psu will do it?

Yup - the 3700X uses about 100W and the 2070 Super another 250W. Factor in board, RAM, fans, externals and drives (all should be about 100W max) and you have a total of 450W under 100% load on everything.

Ok, thank you. Also why did that guy even laugh about me for a 3700x and a 2070 super?

Because he's a young lad stuck in quarantine with nothing but the internet to vent. It's our reality at the moment.

Even if he is running stress tests all day, the power supply will still only be at about 80% usage. The TXM 550W is rated to provide 550W 24/7 for 5 years according to the warranty papers.

Ok thank you but pls don't make fun of newbies. What can I do if I don't know much about pc building?

if you never built pc before, and u plan on ordering these parts soon, id highly recommend u watch few PC build guides on youtube, but while its not hard, its easy to screw up, so just follow guides and u are fine

Follow a guide based around your components. Read the manuals and don't rush. Gamers Nexus have incredibly good articles and videos on the subject.

24/7 for 5 years at full load, and probably 10 years at lower load, thats what i am saying

I'm not that kind of a newbie. Although I haven't built one in my life yet, I still know quiet a bit, at least so that I know what I'm doing.

5 years is the minimum. Most live well past that even at 100% load. Again, these power supplies are very good units and even have overload headroom that can be sustained for prolonged periods. The power supply will easily last 7-8 years at 100% load at which point, if you're upgrading, might as well get a new ATX12VO model.
