  1. yes they are compatible
  2. Compatible, yes.

    Good buy, not so much. Personally Id take a Ryzen 1600 over any i5. Games are starting to utilise more than 4 threads and the 1600 just offers a much better long term opportunity in my view. I agree the 7600k is a great cpu but when compared to a Ryzen setup I just see no reason to pick the i5. We already know the next gen i5's will at least have some 6 core variants so Intel are aware of this.

    ^ this.
    Going for a Ryzen 1600 costs about the same but offers you better performance in the long run.
    Also your PSU is pretty much mediocre at best.

    Managed to replace these parts and fit in a nicer case as well:

  4. Ditto.
    About a 900-950 budget I assume?
    Improved list over the one above, same performance for much less.

    I wouldn't call that "much less"...
    The change to the case I fully endorse - the 100R is more than good enough for most cases - sorry.
    taking money away from the power supply though. I don't think it's worth it.
  6. Eeeh, I reckon $40 is pretty significant. :P
    The power supply is a very high quality unit which can drive a 1070 or even a 1080 no problem.
    450w is way more than needed for a 1060 system that'll only draw something like 250w under load.

    the PSU change is alright
    Seasonic uses better caps, but is group regulated. it's a tie imo.

    as for the case however, doesn't the 100r come with only 1 fan? or am I mixing things up?
    1 case fan is not enough imo, and adding another fan I can go for another case all thogether...
