Solved Is this a yah you're good? or a this is not gonna work.

Specs: Windows 10, AMD - Ryzen 5 1400 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor / G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
I this is my first time building a pc and I wanna make sure that before I buy all the parts, all is compatible and everything will work fine. The mobo has only one fan header and the case has 3 fans so, if I could get some help on that too that would be great. Also what are some suggestions on what I could add or take away from the build, I'm new.

I have done more research for you. I think you should get a MBoard based on the B450 chipset. i am including a number of links below that cover the differences in the chipsets.

The CPU you listed is based on older technology. Pinnicle Ridge core is newer and should be faster and run cooler. I am listing a CPPU from Newegg.com that is newer core, and faster speed for about $17 bucks more. The Corsair PSU listed below is 80 bronze and is &30 after rebates.

The motherboard I am linking below supports the newer/faster PCI 3.0 x 4 M2 drives.

The case you listed is out of stock at Newegg.

The WD Blue SATA drive you listed is OK but only a 2 year warranty on Blue series. The Black series has a 5 year warranty. I am linking one below as well as a M 2 drive.

I will let others advise you on a graphics card and RAM.

As stated above, you can use the included cooler to start. If you decide to OC and temps are an issue then you can always install the 212. That is a good cooler. I am using one on this rig. You do need to verify the case you buy will allow you to use the Graphics card and cooler you install. The specs for the case should provide the GPU max. card length and the cooler height and clearance to the RAM slots. That is all I can think of right now. Let us know what you decide to buy.

Looks like all may work. You need to verify the cooler will fit in the case you picked. You can do better on the PSU, see the link below. Not semi-modular but lots cheaper and more power. You don't mention installing an M2 drive although the board has an M2 slot. Lots faster for the OS. Also, the B450 chipset boards should perform slightly better than the B350. I would also consider spending the cash saved on the PSU to upgrade the CPU. Case is out of stock at Newegg.

If you are on a budget you probably won't use all 4 RAM slots. There is a Biostar board with B450 chipset but only has 2 RAM slots. You may even consider first running the stock cooler at first and see how that works. See the links below

Do I need an m2 drive for the pc to work or can I just use like two hdds or something?
Thanks for the psu suggestion, I haven't even researched about m2 drives so I don't know how to install it. :/
Aw man, I bought the motherboard before I sent this so... I hope I can still use it, right?
I will get it sometime in the future, but any cpu suggestions for my mobo?
Before I build this, will it be fast enough to run games like cs:go?
case suggestions too, im really new to pc building but I did reseach

You might wanna consider a different graphics card. Not that there's anything wrong with the R7 370 (that's what I have) but it's several years old. If you prefer Radeon cards, look at the RX 570 for about the same price.

"Do I need an m2 drive for the pc to work or can I just use like two hdds or something?"

Considering the cost of SSDs - under $50 for 240/250/256GB, whether SATA or M2 - you should consider getting one for the OS & a few of your more important apps. You can put your games, other programs, & data on a standard HDD. Also, the aftermarket cooler isn't absolutely required. Try the stock one at 1st, you can always upgrade later if necessary.

Soooo all I have to do is just buy an m2 drive, plug It in, and I’m good? Then just add an hdd in for some extra storage? I don’t know.
I just checked the Rx 570 on pc part picker, has no reviews.
I just want to know if the gpu is descent or not

Oh wait, do you mean I could get either an ssd or an m2 to store my OS?

Ok thanks for the links.
I’ll try all the parts out.
The only part I bought before asking is the mobo, I’ll replace with your suggested mobo it soon after, but is it simple enough for a first time build?

"will it be fast enough to run games like cs:go"

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a 6 year old game so the system requirements are pretty low by today's standards. https://www.game-debate.com/games/i...

"I just checked the Rx 570 on pc part picker, has no reviews"

You should broaden your search. Part Picker is not the best source for reviews. Try reputable hardware sites. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviewd...

Blue hard drives are OK
Black series hard drives are better and faster for storage purposes.
SSD drives are faster than hard drives to a significant degree but M.2 SSD drives are at least twice and up to three times the speed of SATA SSD drives.
On boards supporting it and as long as you are going with Windows 10 there is no significant difference installing your operating system, just leave the other drive unplugged until after Windows is fully installed and operating. (important reasons for this)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You picked a Midtower case that can't hold a full ATX board. That made the choices leaner. I also assumed cost was important. Boards based on the B450 chipset are less costly than the next step up.

Do you still need help with your case selection.

You'd better look at the recommended (not minimum) requirements.

As per #7 above, that motherboard will work with the Rysen 5 2600 I listed above but ONLY with BIOS version F20 or later. If you still intend to use that board, look at the packaging to see if the BIOS version is stated. I am not sure if you can update the BIOS while running the Rysen 5 2500. Perhaps others can advise.

Most cases will work with the Rysen 5 2600 stock cooler. If you decide later to upgrade to the EVO 212 you need more clearance. The EVO is 6.26" or 159MM. That means the case width must be wide enough to hold the cooler and install the side panel. The max. dimensions for both the cooler and graphics card should be in the specs for any case.

The GPU that riider suggested, Radeon RX 570 Form Factor ATX Max GPU Length 232 mm
Card Dimensions (L x H) 9.13" x 4.57" Slot Width Dual Slot.

I suggest you search for a Mid tower case that can hold either ATX or mATX motherboards. That will provide a little more room, even if you stick with an mATX board.

If you find something you like, look at the specs for fan headers, front port connectors and read the reviews.

Riider, from the looks of your post, it sounds like my pc won't run bo4 well

OtheHill, I think the nzxt h500 supports ATX, does it not?
