Silverstone ML08 paired with a Ryzen 3700x, is it a good idea?

Hello everyone, this is the first build I'm going to do!

Currently, this is my build:

Currently, my largest doubt is regarding the case. I was willing in spending something around 100$/€, and so, Silverstone has cases which are good options on this price margin.

I'm looking for a case with good thermals because the temperature really affects Ryzen's performance. So my first option was the RVZ03/ML07 but since I want to travel to my home country, I was looking into something slimmer and then I've found the RVZ02/ML08.

Since this is a somewhat powerful build, I don't know if these types of slim cases are good options. I simply can't find anything on the internet regarding this. Usually the builds I find for these slim cases are builds with much worse specs or simply from some years ago.

I eagerly await for your feedback since I'm still a noob on this thing :) Thank you in advance!
