This CPU and Motherboard are not compatible 🤔🤔

 

Correct. you Need a motherboard with Intel Z170 / Z270 or H110, or B150 / B250 chipsets. Those support 6th and 7th gen Intel CPU's.

 

Other than that, try something like this for your parts:

 

(this is all the bare entry level stuff from manufacturers I respect). You could go cheaper on the case if you wanted, personal preference.

Airflow is complete garbage, unless you want your pc to catch on fire dont buy the h510

 

Get a mesh case instead like p300-400a

IDK Paul from Pauls Hardware keeps using it for his builds. I have never used it personally. I believe they came out with a high airflow version with front mesh, H510 Flow.

 

Perhaps the Fractal Design Meshify C, seems to score highly, but is 85 pounds or 99 USD.

Cooler Master Masterbox Q300L perhaps for a smaller case, 42 pounds

H510 is only good for low end stuff that doesnt output much heat cause it is a literal oven

 

The new flow version is just a pricier h510 with holes drilled into the front

 

Meshify is a great case cause easy to build in and good quality though expensive

 

 

Just get a p400a instead, theres a digital version with 3 rgb fans in the front and a cheaper non rgb one with 2 fans (1 front, 1 back)

 

Though since op is in the uk those corsair rgb cases are pretty cheap, go for a 220t airflow cause mesh, rgb, and cheap

 

Just turn of the  rgb if you dont want it

Good suggestions, the only thing is that those cases are rather large, full ATX I believe. Since the OP has a micro ATX mobo, he might want something a bit smaller. 

 

What I like about the Meshify C and Masterbox Q300L is the smaller form factor. 

 

Do you know any other micro atx cases with good airflow?
