Hey guys I am going to buy a computer in a few days and I wanted to know your opinion on the build. The budget is around 1500€ in Portugal and I have an Asus VG258Q monitor (1080p 144Hz 1ms) to go along with the computer.

Motherboard - Asus ROG Strix H370-F Gaming
CPU - Intel Core i5 8600
CPU Cooler - Corsair Hydro H60
Graphics Card - Asus Strix GeForce GTX 1070 8GB OC
RAM - G.SKILL Trident Z RGB 2x8GB DDR4 2400MHz CL15
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB 64MB 7200RPM
SSD - Samsung 970 Evo M.2 250GB
PSU - Corsair RM750x v2
Case - Phanteks Eclipse P400S Tempered Glass Black

Let me know if you find any incompatibilities (and yes I went to PCPartPicker to check for them and nothing major came up). Thank you!!

This is slightly over budget. It has plenty of OC headroom. The 1TB NVMe SSD will mean all your games load fast. It has better liquid cooling. The Ryzen 2600x and GTX 2070 will provide a much better gaming experience.

Neither of those builds would actually benefit much from water cooling. The i5-8600 (non-k) is a locked processor, so you wouldn't be overclocking on it, and its stock cooler should be sufficient. The Ryzen 2600X is unlocked, but pretty much pushes itself near its max clocks at the stock settings, and it comes with a decent stock cooler. Either way, the money for an all-in-on water cooler would probably be better put toward components that will actually have a more notable effect on gaming performance, like the graphics card.

Yeah I know, the cooler is just for the swagger, I hate the stock cooler
