Hi all,

Planning to have the below parts for my upcoming NCase M1, the PC will mostly be doing light work like music and browsing and mild gaming a couple days a week, priority is for the PC to be silent in most situations.

Case: Ncase M1 Silver
Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 I Aorus Pro Wifi ITX
CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x
CPU Cooler: Noctua U9S
Fans: Noctua NF-A9 PWM (Rear Exhaust) & 2 x Noctua NF-A12x15 (Intake under GPU)
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce® RTX 2060 SUPER™ GAMING OC 3X 8G (rev. 2.0)
Memory: 32GB ADATA XPG GAMMIX D10 DDR4 3200Mhz CL16 (2 x16GB)
Storage: Samsung M.2 SSD 970 Evo Plus 1TB
PSU: Corsair SF600 80 Plus Platinum

Please let me know if there's anything I can improve or whatnot, any comment is appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

-You don't need the x570 with you don't use pcie gen 4 drives (which almost nobody needs). The Asus b450i can take a stock 3950x.
-highly recommend the noctua c14s if you want silence. I have a rear a9 fan which produces a high irritating pitch above 38% fan speed. My undervolted 3700x runs on the c14s a14 fan on 35-40% fan speed if do long game sessions. So the a9 fans on the u9s will get somewhat loud and high pitched and an a14 fan will be inaudible below 50% fan speed.
-600 watt is enough for every system, even a 2080 super, if there is a chance you go high high-end, consider the 750.
-what resolution and settings/fps are you aiming for with the 2060 super? The 1660 super is waaaay better on price performance, if you go higher hz monitor on 1080p then go the rx 5700 or 5700xt for 1440p. The normal 2060 just got price cuts and also has great price/performance if you want better than 1660 super but worse than rx 5700.
