Hey I'm thinking of building my own gaming PC I wanted to know if all these parts work well together

These are all of the components that I will be using:)


Case: SilverStone Primera Series SST-PM01BR-W

Graphics card: ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Dual-fan OC Edition VR Ready Dual HDMI DP 1.4 Gaming Graphics Card

Power supply: Rosewill Valens-600

MEMORY (RAM): CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB)

Motherboard: ASRock B250M Pro4 LGA 1151 Intel B250 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX

Processer (CPU): Intel Core i5-6500 6MB Skylake Quad-Core 3.2 GHz

Solid state drive : (Team Group L7 EVO 2.5" 240GB SATA III

 
Man that's an expensive case. You do know there are more budget friendly options, right?

GPU should be fine for medium gaming at 1080p or high quality on older games.

Very poor power supply. Please don't use it.

Corsair Vengeance LPX is not enough information. What is the model?

Why B250 for a Skylake CPU?

I can't say I have any major complaints about the SSD, but I'd like to see you get a Samsung one because of the quality they offer.
 
I mocked up your build in PCPartPicker in USD for the United States and came up with about $775. We can do much better for the price. My recommended parts list follows:

Note that 80+ is just an efficiency certification and does not represent actual PSU quality in any way. Even though the Seasonic unit is only 80+ Bronze, it's much higher quality than the Rosewill one you had planned.

Also note that the 6GB version of the 1060 is significantly more powerful than the 3GB version. IDK why Nvidia does this, it's so confusing to new PC builders.

EDIT: You'll want this PWM splitter so that you can run both intake fans off of the motherboard.

Nice is this a more better pick than my one for price?
 


The threat of your PSU failing and taking the motherboard with it is gone, CPU performance will be about equal, graphics performance will be greatly improved, and it's all priced out right in front of you.

If you'd like to save some money, you could stay with the blue fans included in the case and not buy red fans. You'll still need the PWM splitter either way.

If you use our "SMART" (CASE-V06) PC case, the included fans can actually be daisy-chained to work off a single connector on the motherboard. No splitters needed! :D
 


I've been recommending this case for mATX boards for quite awhile now (very impressed with the build quality for the price) and I never knew this.

Will the motherboard still be able to control fan speed?

This will depend on the motherboard. Many do control the fan speed automatically, and some may not. Newer boards do seem to have full control through at least one of the 3-pin headers more often than not. We've used the daisy-chaining feature on a few of our internal office computers built in our cases, and the speed control from the motherboards has worked well with this.

Thanks for the recommendations for our case! We always appreciate the positive feedback!
 


The board I recommended has voltage control for 3-pin fans and PWM control for PWM fans.

You're welcome. In all honesty, I haven't explored your website (yet) and am only familiar with a handful of your products. I happened to stumble across the CASE-V06 on PCPartPicker once for a budget build for myself, really enjoyed building in it, and have been recommending it ever since.

Great, then the motherboard will have full control of the fan speed!

We're glad you liked building in the case! CASE-V06 is our best design at the value price point, and has been very well liked by most. If you try any of our other products, we hope you'll like them just as much!
