So i have been shopping for new parts for my rather old PC. CPU and RAM are still to be decided, so they are excluded from the list. I am sorry if i am asking any stupid questions, as i am still rather new at building PCs.

My list of parts are as follows:

Cooler Master Hyper 212X CPU cooler

MSI GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING X 6G

Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus

Cooler Master Elite 430 - ATX

Corsair Builder Series CX430 - 430W 120 mm

Seagate Desktop HDD ST1000DM003 - 3.5" SATA-600 1TB

It's currently a pretty tight fit in my Cooler Master Elite 430 with a different mobo, but it definitely works. Will i have problems with this new setup?

Thanks a ton!

edit: I just realised my PSU might not be usable with the new mobo. Any suggestions to what i should repalce it with?

Yes it should all work no issues though you are right on the PSU as it is not a great PSU and I would look to at least a 550w and preferably Gold...Also if at all possible grab a NVMe M.2 SSD something like the Crucial P1 which is on sale at just under $100 for the 1TB version or pick up a 500GB version for a lot less. This will make use of the M.2 slots on your motherboard and provide far better speed. Shop a round a bit as Black Friday should have some very good deals...

Thanks a lot. I'm unfortunately not from the US, and black friday is not as big of a deal here as it is overseas. I'll probably get the PSU, but hold off on the other things for a while.

Sorry - additional question. Do you think my PSU coould handle it with a 3600 or 3600x cpu? I'm a bit confused about pins and voltage requirement for my parts.
