Motherboard and Cooler for 5600x/5800x

I am planning to upgrade my current rig and switch over to a either a 5600x or 5800x (depending on availability). I have my other parts picked out, but I'm still looking for a good motherboard and a cooler. I'd like to stay under $200 for the motherboard and under $100 for the cooler. I am also planning on overclocking, but nothing extreme. 

 

Here are a few requirements for the motherboard:

1. ATX

2. Wifi - I'm not sure if I'd be better off getting a mobo with integrated wifi or getting a USB adapter in the future. Only reason I need this is for college

3. Ability to overclock (Nothing extreme)

 

Here are the parts I currently have:

1. Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro

2. Meshify C ATX Case

3. 1TB Samsung 970 Evo SSD

 

Thanks!

your best bet is probably the Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi)

as for the cpu cooler i would get the Noctua NH-D15, there is a brown version and a black version

Any msi b550 board or any decent b550 board will be great for overclocking. Mayby msi b550 pro vsh wifi, mortar wifi or gaming edge wifi.

 

Also meshify X and samsung evo plus are odd choices. there are better products.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

I am up for suggestions if you have any alternatives to these. I don't necessarily have a set budget, but I'm looking to stay in the $1300-$1500 range. Overall, I was planning on pairing a 5600x + 3070
