Upgrading my old intel to ryzen.. parts inside the case right now. 140mm Front Fan with 2x M.2 NVME 2TB, 32gb DDR4 Ram, Intel i5 CPU, GTX 970, Silverstone Strider PSU 750W (made my own custom cables) . Only thing im swapping will be the Cpu and Motherboard. Dont use 2.5 SATA Drives anymore. Strictly M.2 NVME for Fast and Cleaner setup. A lot of Motherboards now have multiple NVME Slots :)

I'd get a better CPU cooler; I have a Cryorig C7 and it does it job perfectly with Ryzen 5 2600. Also, some filters for that fan is something I'd get.

Otherwise, looks good!

Make sure that power supply is healthy, oh and i noticed your motherboard its an itx size.
X570 hardly have any itx size motherboards i think asrock is the one that comes into mind that has it.
X470 has a few, the asus one is quite good but you miss out on pci-e 4.0
B450 has a few, msi has some good boards here

i think i might be wrong here but the itx motherboards only have 1 m.2 slot

I got the Asus x470-i itx it has 2xM.2 nvme slots. pairing it with ryzen 3800x

Needs more cleaning! :p Otherwise looks good! X570 might be the Chipset that will suit you best if you like NVME? and like Chloe said a better CPU cooler would be a good idea, what CPU are you looking at getting?
