Can you tell me if these Pc parts are compatible?

Hey Guys!

I was just wondering if any of you could tell me if these parts don't work together (And if you could tell me which parts don't work and some that I could replace them with that would be great!)

Parts:

CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I74790K

Motherboard: ASRock Z97 Extreme 4 LGA 1150 ATX Intel Motherboard

Memory/RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 8GB Memory Modules)

Hard Drive: Kingston SSDNow V300 240GB SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) SV300S37A/240G

Case: Corsair Carbide Series Spec-02 Mid-Tower ATX Gaming Computer Case

Power Supply: Corsair CX Series CX750M 750 Watt ATX Modular Power Supply

Graphics/Video Card: MSI Radeon R9 270 Overclocked 2048MB PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card

Operating system: Microsoft Windows 8.1 32/64-bit Full Version

If you could tell me if these parts are compatible that would be great!

More about parts compatible
  1. they are compatible but i would get a different case With more fans. i would get a different Board than Asrock as they tend to be less reliable. i would also get a after market cpu cooler so you could overclock good
  2. You may want to think about a different PSU. I heard the CX series Corsair PSU's used poor capacitors. I could be wrong though. Someone better in the know can chime in on that.
  3. Thanks guys! Still open for suggestions!
  4. If you guys said the case isn't good can you give me some suggestions?

    I was referring to the power supply and not the case. I have no clue about the case. Usually the case a personal choice.
  6. for around that price you should look at the Corsair carbide 200r or the Graphite 230t but i can also reccomend some more expensive cases too

    I wouldn't be a good source for that suggestion really. However, I do know EVGA G2 series power supply (PSU) is a good one to go with. I just ordered a 750W EVGA G2 myself and in the process of putting that into my new build. It is a bit pricey.
  10. That's fine :) Thanks for the suggestion!
  11. chrisb99 do you think I should replace my motherboard with this one? ASUS Z97-AR LGA 1150 Intel ATX Motherboard
  12. Your build is way out of balance if this is a gaming build ...
  13. Wisecracker can you tell me why?
  14. AMD FX-8320
    Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P
    G.Skill 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
    $274 before $10 rebate

    Put the $200 saved toward a GTX 970 graphics card if you are gaming at 1080p or less --- if you are gaming (or have future plans to do so) above 1080p, snag a Radeon R9 290.
  15. Here how about this gaming build?

    CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor

    Motherboard: Asus H97-PLUS ATX LGA1150 Motherboard

    Memory: Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

    Video Card: PNY GeForce GTX 970 4GB XLR8 Video Card

    Storage: Kingston SSDNow V300 240GB SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) SV300S37A/240G

    Case: Raidmax Vampire ATX Full Tower Case

    Power Supply: Corsair Builder 750W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply

    Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32/64-bit)

    Does this work?
  16. looks better btw you cant overclock With that MOBO
  17. Best answer
    i agree, build is unbalanced. judging from the parts i'll assume your budget is 1000USD so i'll build from there. and also assume your desired resolution is a single 1080p @ 60 Hz.

  18. TofuLion can I make the CPU a intel Core i7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I74790K
    ( I'm going to play minecraft and I LOVE lots of fps) And the Memory a bit better (I need 16GB pls) and the SSD to be 6GB/s writing speed
    Everything else is GREAT thank you SO much!
    if you could see if that would be alright you would be AWESOME
    -Henry
  19. well is your max budget $1000 USD? if so, then not without lowering you GPU which is essentially more important than anything else. also, if this is just to play minecraft, you don't need any of those parts, and could get just as much performance for half the price. it would be the difference between 100 FPS and 300 FPS (which wouldn't matter most displays are 60 Hz meaning 60 FPS max).
  20. Well I can go over 1000 USD (Not like +400) but like 100-200 more bucks I could do :D So I can switch the CPU?
  21. Best answer
    again, this is quite overkill for minecraft. but as you wish.
