Final config, just need to dot the i's.

Why am I building another PC, because I am going nuts hanging around the house.
(to old for Rossetta Stone.)

ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz C16 DDR4 DRAM
Nivida GeForce 1030

Those look fine. I have used corsair vengeance ram in a LOT of ryzen builds; works great. Be sure you have a quality pw supply.
If you intend on overclocking, you will probably need a better cooler than the stock amd cooler. If you are going to run at stock speed, the amd cooler is fine.

No overclocking.
Am going to use the Corsair cx550m, because I have a new one in the closet.
I have extra ssd's, hard drives and the power supply, so the total is $600.

Post a picture of it when your build is done...we'd love to see it.

Will I be able to connect this cases usb3.0 to the an asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS

The case states 2 x USB 3.0 (internal 20-pin connector to M/B)

Looking at the Asus motherboard states 2 x Front USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports
The documentation shows connect a USB 3.2 Gen 1 module for additional USB 3.2 Gen 1 front or rear panel ports.
purchased separately. SB 3.2 Gen 1 connector (20-1 pin U32G1_12)


Can I assume that the case can just connect to the 20 pin on the motherboard for standard usb 3 and SB 3.2 Gen 1 is just if I want to increase the number of usbs ?connector

Installing the Asus Tuf x570, finding these rgb options confusing.
There are rgb addressable connections
rgb Aura connections
many of the fans come with an rgb controller.

I just want blue, with the fans controlled by the motherboard.

Is there an rgb for dummies anywhere.

I've installed an asus TUF x570, below it is a Corsair cx550m power supply.
I won't be overclocking and am using a low temp Nividia Geforce 1030
(3 fans)

The clearance between the PSU and the motherboard is only about a 1/16th of an inch.
Does a power supply case get hot enough where this would be an issue ?

Shouldn't matter as long as they arent touching. If they were touching you would have to worry about shorting or vibration (noise) and not heat. Depending on how the power supply is installed, the power supply and the video card may be blowing hot air onto each other. So there could be a cooling issue. That would be my only concern in this case.

Not that I've seen. If you are using RGB fans, you will need something to control / change the color. Doesn't matter if it's a fan controller, the motherboard, or a standalone controller.

If the motherboard is vertical you should be fine and the PSU fan should be pointing down if that's possible.
What case is it ?

What case are you using? To have that little clearance between a standard atx motherboard and a standard pw supply is highly unusual.
