First SFF, Sliger SM560 build, opinions?

I've been patiently waiting for the Sliger EU distributor to be set up as I've been eyeing up sm560 or cerberus ever since I first laid eyes on them, and I've noticed distributor's website has been updated (but is currently out of stock).

This will be my first build, and I will unfortunately NOT have custom cables now, maybe in the future I will be able to get them. I'd like advice on any compatibility issues that might arise from the below build, I'm happy to take suggestions on alternative components :).

This will be purely a gaming build, I do not plan to overclock at any point in the future.

Two questions:
1) Will it be possible to build the below without using custom cables in a sm560?
2) Is Asetek 645lt overkill considering I'll do no overclocking? I'll be moving this case around a lot to LAN parties, so I'd like to avoid liquid cooling as I'm afraid the constant movement will eventually cause a leak, but I'd (reluctantly) get a 645lt if it's deemed worth it for the better cooling.

EDIT: I notice that Sliger have an option for a traditional power cable or a pigtail cable, what's the difference between them?

The pigtail is for graphics cards that are over 133mm, the PowerColor is 132mm so you should be fine. Overall your build looks solid, custom cables are not required but make things much easier.

I don't think you need the Asetek for the 3600. If the Black Ridge is compatible (I think it has some issues with some X570 boards, may also with the B450I going by this thread, though he doesn't give specifics) that would be plenty, though I think it's easier to go with a better compatibility cooler like the L9a or other high-performing, low-profile air coolers.
