Is this PC good enough for 1080p 144hz gaming?

I just bought these parts and a 144hz monitor and I am ready to build. My question is very simple, can I run games like Rainbow Six Siege, PUBG, BF1 etc. at 1080p 144hz with this rig? Or these parts were a complete mistake?

CPU: i5 8400

CPU COOLER: Cryorig H7

MOBO: ASRock Z370 Pro4

GPU: MSI GTX 1070 GAMING X 8GB

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 3000mhz DDR4

SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200rpm

PSU: Corsair CX650M

  1. ~100 FPS is reachable, I will drop the cooler, stock cooler is fine for 8400.

    The build looks good, to get 144 FPS your probably going to need to adjust settings but you should be fine around med-high settings. FYI PUBG is poorly optimized so I wouldn't expect good performance until it's patched.

    OHNO, so you are telling me I f***** up choosing the parts???
  4. Keep the H7, while the stock cooler is sufficient the H7 will keep it much cooler and is much quieter.
  5. your build is outstanding man. at least, you can keep the cooler in case you will get an overclockable or more demanding CPUs in the future.
  6. H7 is good for 8600k, just an FYI. I am not saying you mess up but that extra cost is not a must for 8400 :)
    PUBG is just poorly optimized, ~100 FPS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3LQNs0q8VM
    BF1 should get ~140 FPS, similar as rainbow 6
