the 7700k has a higher turbo even if he doesn't OC, its still faster.

It also runs a lot hotter.

If he locks the voltage to idk 1.25v? and sets and all core multi to 45 it should be fine.

So...a lot more work for someone who prefers plug and play? Yeah, sure, you're really thinking about what he's after.

To be honest, plug and play is more my style. After years of owning an unlocked CPU I have still never felt the need to overclock, either because of satisfaction or laziness. My current performance is quite fine, and anything past a tier up/ a minor upgrade would be overkill

Instead of focusing on the CPU, is there anything else I should change? Case? GPU?

Hahaha, yeah. Exactly like me.

Maybe to something Vega based? Not sure yet, we'll know more on that at the end of the month.

Are you looking for slim and long? Or just small? I know some other decent cases that are on the smaller side.

Generally console-style, but I will consider other styles. Portability is key.

The Ghost S1 is coming out this month. I'm not sure on pricing but it's tiny.

CPU
For Ryzen there's only the Biostar X370GTN ITX and in about 4 days (according to newegg) the AsRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming ITX/ac. Stay away from the Biostar with anything bigger than a Ryzen 5 as the VRMs and Chokes really get awfully hot with a Ryzen 7 and OC (see review on Hardware Canucks). The AsRock Fatal1ty might be a good option (at a good price according to newegg) but I'd wait for proper reviews with regards on VRM design.

At blue camp I wouldn't bother with anything below a i5 7600k for a gaming rig that should last like 2+ years and even then you're probably better off with Ryzen 5. So then there's the i7 7700k for about the same as a Ryzen 7 1700 setup. It's basically up to you.

 

GPU
Thanks to the mining hype 1060s are a bit overpriced and people start going after 1070s so it's a bit tricky to find some cards. You might not go for liquid cooling yet but have an eye on ekwb's compatibility list for their new fluid gaming kits. That way you keep your options. 

 

PSU
A system like yours won't use more than let's say 300–330W peak so a 450W psu should be enough.

 

SSD/HDD
Why not going for a M.2 drive? The Intel 600p series is pretty affordable for being M key M.2. Saves space and gives you better performance.

Case

There are several people using all that in extreme SFF cases (way smaller than a Node 202). Personally I'd rather go with Silverstone's RVZ01(-E) or the new RVZ03. Personal favourite: RVZ01 because of the design that allows a full custom loop inside of it. 

 

What's your budget for a case? There are several great SFF cases out there, like Zaber SentryNCases M1 and DanCases A4-SFX. Sure, they come at quite a premium, but they are really small. The M1 is also made to accomodate watercooling or at least an AiO so there won't be any thermal issues.

 

Cooling

For high performance low profile air cooling suitable for high TDP CPUs there's not that much to go with. Don't know the Cryorig cooler but I'd probably go with Noctua's NH-L9… coolers or Noctua's NH-L12 (if it fits your specific case).

Generally looking for air cooling. I would like to keep the case under 100 USD. I'll look at those cases.

Thanks for the help!

Uhm, in that case … don't bother with those 3 I've linked. They're more like $180+. ;)
