    The have tested most of the best / easiest to get coolers for CPU. You can see in their PDF what they recommend. You can go liquid or air both works great.
    You can also read what GPU will fit. So basically you just deside your budget and performance you need. Quite straight forward.
    You will need to use a sfx powersupply. you can just Google best sfx Power supply and their is a handful of good ones.
    You are going with the Ł top hat ?
    I would probalyponly use that for a AIO water cooling for the CPU. Buy sure some fans won't hurt.

    would G.Skill Trident Z 3600 MHz CL15 (F4-3600C15D-16GTZ ) be compatible with x470-I?

    Depends on what cooler you get. With air-cooler you probably need low profile ram. If you have water cooling you can probably use the ram you talked about
