I am finally going to build my PC, and i have one concern...

After a long time of wait and save money i'm finally going to build my first PC ever, this is my part list:

Motherboard: MSI Pro Z690-A DDR4

CPU: Intel Core i5 12600k

Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock 2 Black

PSU: Corsair 750w something something 80+ gold

Ram: Corsair vengance LPX 16GB 3200 CL16

Storage: Crucial P2 500 gb m.2 nvme ssd

Case: NZXT h510

 

As you can see, i don't have a graphics card (the absolute state of the graphics card market), i will stick with on board graphics for a while until i can save for someting decent, i don't want to pay 300+ dolars for a 1050 ... It is most likely that i'll be buying something like a RX 6600xt or 6700xt, but it is not a priority for the moment, since this pc is not likely to be used as gaming right now.

My only concern is that, i know Intel CPU's are great, but i also know that they tend to run a little hot so, will that cooler be enough to handle the CPU?

 

What do you think about my selection? Any suggestions or tips i should be aware of? Keep in mind, this is my first build ever hahaha

you can probably step down to a 660 or other board for a good bit less money and not lose anything 

I was considering that! but there are not really decent B660 mobos where i live, and the one's that are available are really expensive for what they offer, so i decided to go for the Z690 MSI which is at a great price

The cooler's fine for a 12600K, if you ever decide to step up later to a 12700K or 12900K you may need an upgrade. If you have a Micro Center near(ish) by they've been pretty well stocked with AMD cards.

If you can find the scythe fuma 2 on a good price, I would get that. it would be a bit overkill for the 12600, but it would be able to cool a higher end CPU if you plan to upgrade it in the future. The current cooler would work though.

 

I would go with a NVME SSD with a dram cache. I'd also go with 1TB if you can afford it cause games get too big now 😞 . Here are some options:

 

Storage: ADATA XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  ($119.99 @ Amazon Canada) 
Storage: Western Digital WD_BLACK SN750 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  ($164.99 @ Canada Computers) 
Storage: Team MP34 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  ($140.99 @ Newegg Canada) 
Storage: Mushkin Pilot-E 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  ($142.99 @ Amazon Canada) 
Storage: Silicon Power P34A80 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  ($124.99 @ Amazon Canada) 
Storage: PNY CS2130 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  ($146.25 @ Amazon Canada) 
Storage: ADATA XPG GAMMIX S7 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  ($176.40 @ Amazon Canada) 

 

Maybe get a case with better airflow? If you plan to put a 6700xt in there in the future or whatever future GPU that's available, the lack of air flow will cause the GPU to overheat and lower your overall performance.

I think it is just within my budget but, is it LGA 1700 compatible or do i need to buy some bracket adaptor? I live in Mexico, so it is kind of difficult to find those adaptors here.
I've seen amazon sell noctua ones, but i have absolutely no idea if those are compatibles.

You would have to speak with the manufacturer to get the compatible bracket for lga 1700 if it isn't with the cooler. I think it  should be in the description in amazon, but I'm not 100% sure.
