  1. It all works together. Only very small thing is your RAM will only work at 2133 but prices on 2400 are about the same so no issue. Fire cuba is costly with little perpose on a system with an SSD but it does work. You could save $30 with a regular 1tb driver.
  2. It's compatible, yes.

    Some comments though:
    1. You could do KabyLake opposed to Skylake, at the price.
    2. 2400MHz is wasted on H110..... max 2133MHz
    3. PSU is overpricedl for what you need - quality PSU though.
    4. FireCuda hybrid is a little wasted when paired with an SSD - mechanical would be fine as secondary storage.

    While performance gains are only marginally better (newer CPU, slightly higher clock, 2400MHz vs 2133MHz RAM)....... there are gains, and it comes it a tiny bit cheaper (and the board fits your Red/Black colour scheme a little better IMO)

  3. since the mini itx mobo has 2 ram slots, i would advice a 1x8gb config to start with. also, 3gb vram now is pushing the limits. i feel rx570 is a better deal here with its overclocking headroom.

  4. Just throwing this out there..... I still like my original build, but I'd switch out the PSU for the CX550 Lucky_SLS linked.

    Have you ruled out mATX as an option...... sure, adding wifi (assuming you need/want it) is an added cost ($30 or so), but it does give you some more options.

    I put this AMD option together quickly, just to give an idea. Colour scheme is there, 8GB RX580 opposed to a 3GB 1060, Ryzen Quad/8threads (albeit the 'budget' chip)....

    u sure the op doesn't want to upgrade to 16 gigs later? a 1x8gb ripjaws 2800 is what i would recommend. it can be overclocked to 2933 easily in that b350 mobo. op can add another stick if he wants later. lol,

    clocked higher than the 1400 and comes with a beefier cooler.

    "Adding" RAM can be problematic, and dual-channel ha performance gains.. Regardless of what configuration used to start with, I'd always recommend replacing with a new "kit" (so in this case, replace 2x4GB with 2x8GB), but the additional may simply work.

    Personally I'd opt for the 1400 + 8GB 580, but you've given a solid alternative with the 1500X + 4GB 580.

    Dont get the 1060 3GB because it booms on doom and hitman. Its even slower than the 1050ti if you really want an issue. Plus if you look over the review its got some massive low min fps in more than a few games.
