I soon will build my own pc soon from these parts (This is my only oppertunity since black friday is coming and I just had my birthday, so I have to be sure its compatible) , and I am pretty sure there are no compatibility issues but I wanted to be sure since I am not an expert. I would love for someone more experienced to check on my parts and if they are compatible with each other. I would also like your general opinion on the parts like if the case is good for dust, and if my psu is good enough ect.. Also I wont be buying the i7-7700, I would be taking it from my old pc. Its also the first ever pc I am building. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/FantasticKru/saved/#view=Hd37TW

Thanks

Will reply with a improved build later:

120MM AIO's are of awful value.

You don't need extra thermal paste.

Don't buy like a 3/4 year old for MSRP, that is insane. Buy used.

You can get faster RAM for the same price or less.

Assuming that is is for gaming you would be much better off with a cheaper NVME SSD.

The 5700 XT is better and costs about the same.

The PSU isn't bad but at this budget I would suggest getting something better and bigger (~550W)

They may need extra thermal paste because their moving this CPU from their old PC.

Thermal paste comes with all coolers.

Then again, if they want high quality paste, this is fine, but I honestly don't think they'll need it.

Paste comes on the cooler if it's also used then need more paste.

AMD has cheaper prices with awesome performance, but both are incredible brands.

Why. Choosing parts by brand ain't gonna do you any favors since you are just ignoring other viable options such as the 5700 XT which performs better.

https://pcpartpicker.com/user/FantasticKru/saved/#view=gfYk6h this is my build after i updated it, I still might need to change the cooler because of what you said, and I now remembred I do need the thermal paste for something else. and I might consider the amd gpu.

Went with a HSF that will be more than plenty for a locked CPU. No point in dropping big bucks on a cooler when you don't need the extra cooling capacity.

Don't pay MSRP for yesterdays tech. Buy the board use. Not this exact board, any half way decent Z270 board would work and honestly you could get a low end one (well at least relatively) such as a ASRock Pro 4 or something similar.

It has RAM that is faster and cheaper.

A lower end NVME drive is already overkill compared to a SATA SSD, there is absolutely zero point in dropping a extra ~$50 for benefits you won't ever see when it comes to load and boot times. Why go NVME still? A decent NVME drive costs about the same as a decent SATA drive, why not.

Since we went with a used board I got a better GPU. Also its not a founders card either.

It has a better and bigger PSU.
