Is this build compatible?

Ram: Corsair Dominator Platinum Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz (PC4-25600) C16 Memory Kit

CPU: Cooler: NZXT Kraken X62 All-in-One 280mm CPU Liquid Cooling System, Black (RL-KRX62-02)

PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G2, 80+ GOLD 650W, Fully Modular, EVGA ECO Mode, 7 Year Warranty, Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply 220-G2-0650-Y1 by EVGA

Case: NZXT CA-S340W-W2 S340 Elite ATX Mid Tower Case, White

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Processor (YD170XBCAEWOF)

GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Turbo Graphic Card TURBO-GTX1080-8G

MOBO: ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero AMD Ryzen AM4 DDR4 M.2 USB 3.1 ATX X370 Motherboard with AURA Sync RGB Lighting

I already have storage from my previous PC.

It looks like these parts are compatible but I just wanted to double check.

The only concern I have is the cpu cooler not fitting in the case, is this true?

Also is there any parts that I should sub out for better ones?

  1. No problem, NZXT s340 elite case is very spacious, you have a very good build :) Just to be safe, is the ram listed in MB QVL list?

  2. You would be crazy not to go for intel coffee lake that got released today, it absolutly destroys everything.

  3. How much is it though?

  4. Depending on the major usage, if video editing/streaming, 1700X is better

    That should all work. pcpartpicker.com is a great way to figure out if parts are compatible, find prices, and keep track of your build. I'd look into the new Coffee lake processors and maybe wait for the 1070 Ti which will be a around $70 less then the 1080.

    NO coffee lake is better. in rendering (single threaded) and certainly gaming.
