I'm building a pc for myself the first time. I have checked part compatibility on pcpartpicker.com, but I'm not sure as some of the parts (case for exc.) cannot be found on those lists, so I wanted to come here and check if they all will work together.

I have personally checked on top of pcpartpicker.com that the dimensions and all that would be okay, but wanna make sure before buying.

Here's a link to the Amazon list: amazon list
(on the German website as it is easiest to ship the parts from there)

Kind of an odd choice to get a 7700k and an H270 motherboard nearing 2020 when there's no real price benefit at Amazon.de compared to a 9700k and a Z390. And I'd much rather use pre-applied paste and get a better quality PSU than get a worse PSU and aftermarket thermal paste.

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor (€395.00 @ Amazon Deutschland)
Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PLUS ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (€130.18 @ Amazon Deutschland)
Power Supply: SeaSonic FOCUS 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (€88.84 @ Amazon Deutschland)
Total: €614.02
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

(You certainly don't need 750W either)

I'd personally be inclined to look at a Ryzen build if I was building at this moment.

Thanks for the answer! I mostly chose the 7700k because of the base clock as I do not want to overclock, but it might a bit too old for 2020 :D

I added the thermal paste tecause I wasn't sure if the AIO had some already on it.

Don't worry about the base clocks. The 8700k and 9700k are better CPUs. Having two or four more real cores is a very big deal. The automatic turbo for the 7700k only gets up to 4.5 GHz and 4.4 GHz on two or more cores. The 9700k can boost to 4.6 GHz when on eight cores.

Pretty much every AIO will come with thermal paste preapplied.
