Is this PC build fully compatible?

the asking is clear, i don't wanna see incopatibilities or errors of volt or freq.
will this build work? (I'm almost sure that is everything okay but you know, is better to have someone elses opinion).

Motherboard: Asus Strix H270f Gaming S1151
CPU: Intel Core i7 7700 KabyLake 3.6
RAM: Kingston FuryX DDR4 2666mhz 16gb (2x8gb)
GPU: ASUS GTX 1050 ti Dual Cooler
PSU: Sentey 500w 80plus snp500-hs
HDD: one of 1tb and another of 2tb (this is irrelevant but just in case)

i will use stock coolers nothing of deepcool monsters or wc cause it scares me to introduce water inside my rig and i don't have much money left, here in argentina is everything so expensive.

  1. What are you planning to do with the PC? If it's 60 FPS gaming(it certainly looks so from the GPU), get a Ryzen system instead, it'll perform much better and will last much longer for the same price.

  3. The only thing that bothers me is the PSU. Never heard of it. And like shektron said, go for the ryzen 1600 if it's cheaper than the 7700 there. 1 more thing is that both h270 and b250 supports only upto 2400mhz rams.

  4. Sentey is actually well known, but it's not exactly a good psu, not totally miserable, but close. The Only decent psu Sentey ever branded was the Sentey Jumper, which was surprisingly good quality and very well received. All the other lines were pretty close to junk. If there's any possible way to avoid that actual purchase take it, it's not a reliable unit.

    Go with a Ryzen cpu, 1600 or better. It's cheaper overall (usually) and with 6c/12t, your dad will have an easier time with the production apps, some of which can be almost 2x as fast as the i7-7700. The ram for the Ryzen will be just fine at 2666MHz. You'll only need the cheaper B250 board, and the cpu can be overclocked on the stock cooler, usually upto @3.8-4.0GHz and stay within voltage/temp tolerances on the stock cooler.

    *B350 board.

    And yes, for your uses, the Ryzen 5 1600, paired with a good B350 board will be good. Overclock it to around 3.8 GHz, and you're set. Fast RAM would help both in games and some workstation use, and 2666 MHz or 2800 MHz should be enough.

    but they will work at 2400 right? on internet specs says that it can be pushed to max 3300 mhz trough oc

    i have installed in another rig, another sentey 80plus and it works like a charm, never had any trouble and it feeds a evga gtx 760 sc 2gb ddr5, not the best gpu but it uses a lot of energy, i have to plug 2 pci e to it 1 of 6pins and another of 8pins, and never happened something strange

  9. Only the z270 is oc capable and enables xmp supports for ram beyond 2400mhz. And to answer your question, yes those 2666 rams will run @ 2400 speeds. I said that since 2400 is usually cheaper than 2666. Didn't know that you have your components already.
