Yes, everything will work with that cpu.
it's a nice leap in performance over the old i5 6500 as it's much higher clocked, unlocked and has 2 more cores.
You'll need an aftermarket cooler for it though as it doesn't come with one and Intels stock cooler wouldn't be enough anyway.

You could sell the old I5 aswell as they still can be used for lower end systems.

An 8600k and z370 will work together well and the 6 threads will be great for games and decent for rendering tasks, although it would be better for rendering if it supported hyperthreading.

Id suggest a hyper 212 as a cheap aftermarket cooler for stock clocks or a mild overclock. A bequiet dark rock pro 4 would be my choice for a good looking tower cooler for overclocking.
