Will this build work?

I'm upgrading my PC from way back, I'm reusing the PSU and GPU from it which I've added onto the list but everything else I'll be buying new. Will everything be compatible with no issues? Many thanks for your help! :)

PC part picker has a feature where it will do a compatibility check and alert you if any items on your list are incompatible. It looks like it should all work to me.

only the tips

- You can get a 2600 for 10$ more

- Do you really need an H100i?

- Try for at least a 250gb SSD, 120GB's will run out very quick

- Add a hard drive for mass storage

Yeah I saw but I guess I wasn't entirely sure if I trusted it completely haha. Thought I'd come here for clarification, many thanks

- Damn I had no idea! Put this together ages ago so I hadn't come across that, will definitely get the 2600 - thank you!

- Well it isn't that I need it whatsoever if I'm being honest, just after RBG loveliness and I've always wanted the block to sit over the CPU instead of an air cooler

- Again, thank you. 250gb is only £10-15 more vs a 120gb so I'll upgrade that

- Already have one, left that off of the list

 

 Anything else you can see that's glaring out at you? Would appreciate any advice :)

Id maybe get a better motherboard, considering you'll have the equipment to overclock you might as well, and a better motherboard will help.

Don't be daunted by it either, I was too. Its super easy.

Just posted on the MB section about that, because when I changed the 1600 to 2600, the partpicker website said I might have to go through the BIOS update bullshit since the one I chose is a B350 board. Would like to avoid that at all costs which I believe means I'm after a B450 board, any advice on good options for as cheap as possible?

B350 boards should have updated bios' by now. Though I understand. 

 

ASrock pro 4 b450m board is fairly decent, though if you can, shoot for the B450 Mortar from MSI. It has great VRMs for overclocking.

Right, d'you think I'd be fine with the original B350 one that's on my build then? Because the B450 boards are a good £15-25 more which might be a bit too much since I've added in the additional £30 into upgrading to the 2600 and 250gb SSD
