Do you think that this build is fine for gaming? I travel a lot, will it get to hot?

IMHO the MSI B450I Gaming Plus AC will perform just as well as X470 Strix, and the B450 strix too, for about $60 less. The only downside is that it only has one system fan header which you can fix with a cheap fan hub if you need it. Shouldn't really be an issue in an HTPC.

As to will it over heat, maybe with the 2700X. You will likely be fine with the cryorig cooler but may have to replace the stock fan. I would also suggest a more robust thermal paste like thermal grizzly Kryonaut to help with temps.

Do you plan on overclocking? If not, the stock air cooler is sufficient. Also, I’d look into a 7200rpm hdd, a better psu, and you can get m.2s with more storage for the same price from other companies.

What’s your budget?

I don't think so, yeah i would like to use the stock cooler but i'm not sure if it will fill in the case, and what do you mean with a better PSU? like higher capacity? and thank you for the tips
