Parts I have
Case: Be Quiet! DarkBase Pro 900 v2
Mother board: MSI MEG Z390 ACE
Boot Drive: Sasmsung 970 EVO SSD M.2 1T
RAM Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 3600
NZXT Kraken x72 AIO RGB cooler
3rd be Quiet Silent Wings 3 140MM fan for front intake
Parts yet to order
Intel i9-9900KF (the F means no integrated video on the chip)
Corsair AXI Series AX1600i wat PSU
MSI Gaming Geforce TRX 2080 TI Gaming X Trio
Samsung 860 Evo 2tb SSD for secondary HDD
For this build I'm not going custom water cooler yet. Maybe down the road I'll add that on but for now the NZXT looked pretty nice and with what I'm spending already more in my budget. Hoping after the first of the month to get the power supply and processor. Then last will be the video card. Then after that the crown for it all will be a 49" ultra wide gaming monitor! I'll post pics when I start tearing this case appart.
I plan to remove the optical drive cage and install the 3rd front fan. Need to see if my radiator will fit on the top or if I'll need to front mount it.
I have been rocking almost that exact same combo for about a year and it's fantastic (MSI MEG Ace mobo, 970 evo + nvme OS drive, Corsair V RGB pro 32gb, 9900K @ 5Ghz all core, EVGA 2080ti, Corsair RM1000i PSU, 280mm Corsair AIO with ML140 fans).
I play pretty much every game maxed out at 4K 60fps and have no complaints.
Best of luck!
