*CPU- Intel Boxed Core I7-6700K 4.00 GHz 8M Processor Cache 4 LGA 1151 w/ Arctic Silver 5 AS5-3.5G Thermal Paste

 

*Cooling- Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan

 

*Power- EVGA SuperNOVA 650 GS

 

*RAM- Ballistix Sport LT 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR4 2400 MT/s

 

*Motherboard- Gigabyte LGA1151 Intel Z170 ATX DDR4 Motherboards GA-Z170X-Gaming 3

 

*OS- Windows 10 Full Retail Disk

 

 

 

If any of these things don't work with each other PLEASE let me know, thanks -Matt

Looks like everything is compatible.

 

Here is a link from PC Part Picker of what is compatible with your future build.

They are compatible but I'd take at least better PSU.

Also 6700K price is horrible considering it's only quad core and I see no valid reasons to buy GTX 1070 as it lacks proper DirectX 12 and Vulkan support.

And Windows should be FPP/Retail.

What about the Corsair RM850x, would that still be compatible with the rest of the build and would you recommend it?

+1 with post #3: Having a retail system installation disk gives you a big advantage in the event of problems. And...do yourself a huge, gorilla-size favor: after you have the OS and your desired programs installed make an image of the whole partition using Macrium Reflect free and keep it on a backup drive off-computer. If you need suggestions on how to set this up post back. It's easy, and will save you countless headaches when you have problems down the road.

Too expensive. EVGA 650 G2 (or GS) is more than enough.

Even 550W is enough.

Also EVGA Supernova G2 or GS. There are many models from EVGA.

You sure there wont be any power problems even with the 1070 and i7 6700k? if not I will most likely go with the 650 GS. Sorry, i just want to make sure there arent any problems with power before I buy it.

Why there should be power problems? There's total power consumption from wall with i7-5960X (that is 140W part), efficiency is not taken into account so total power is about 8% lower.

So even good quality 450W PSU would be more than enough for your system. With overclocking, 650W is surely enough.

 

As I said, I still don't recommend those parts but that's your choice.
