Is this build compatible?

Im trying to build a computer! i made a thread before about it and really got some good help
i came up with this build :

Intel - Core i5-7600K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor
Cooler Master - Hyper 212 LED Turbo (Red) 66.3 CFM CPU Cooler
MSI - B250 GAMING M3 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
MSI - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB GAMING X Video Card
ADATA - 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
HDD 1TB + ADATA - Premier SP550 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Cooler Master - Force 500 ATX Mid Tower Case
Corsair - Builder 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
ARCTIC - MX-2 4g Thermal Paste


Is this good? and compatible? Do components fit in that case? Do you have any suggestions?

    You need a Z270 motherboard to overclock the unlocked CPU you selected and the 3000MHz speed RAM.

    The OC'able i5-7600K (as well as other non-OCable i5's) have lowered its value due to the release of the Ryzen 5 CPUs which are all overclockable and all have multi/hyper-threading (better price/performance). Nowadays, games start to use more cores/threads, so, you might want to consider getting the i7-7700K (4-core/8-thread) but at such a higher price. If budget is a concern, the Ryzen 5 1600 is a good CPU (to be paired with a B350 motherboard).

    Get a better SSD (such as a Samsung 850 EVO or a Crucial MX300), at ~250GB/~275GB, as it has faster speed and better price performance.

    I suggest a better-quality PSU such as the Seasonic M12II-520 EVO or Corsair CX550M/CX450M.

  5. Yes, grab a b350 board and you'll be able to overclock

  6. I read that the i5 7600k is way way better than ryzen 5 1600X when it comes to gaming! So im really nervous about picking the cpu ( and eventually the motherboard also ) , i dont want to regret later and change the cpu and also the mobo
    I mainly play FPS games ( csgo, overwatch )

  7. Its not "way better" they perform about the same but you get more value with the 1600
