The Fortress mini wouldn't be my first pick for mITX case but to each their own.

Corsair makes an RF600 which is something to consider.

No point in a K processor if you're not getting a Z board.

Most important part, you should have an SSD.

I changed the case, CPU and the SSD but I can't find out what a corsair RF600 is.

So I changed the old power supply with the SF600, any other things I should change? Maybe some of the parts are over-kill?

For a gaming rig? No. Didn't you add an SSD?

If you're not doing any video rendering or that sort the i7 isn't necessary. You could probably use the i5 6600 or 6500 in turn for a slightly higher quality PSU. I play games daily on an i5 6500 and an M5000 (980 with 8GB basically) with no issues.

So you could at least maybe go up a tad in PSU quality like a Seasonic M1211 520 or a slightly better model eVGA.

The H60 will sufficiently cool one of these stock CPUs.
