3700X on the way, NOW WHAT

My 3700X should be here this friday. I'm going from a 1700x clocked at 3.8 ghz 24/7 with stable option at 4 ghz. I've never tried/needed to OC the EVGA 1070ti FTW

I am considering upgrading one of my monitors to a 4K panel. Suggestions appreciated. I am waiting for the PowerColor 5700XT to come in stock. Or maybe the 2070 Super is worth the premium?

Some youtube reviewers claim in games there is barely any difference between these CPU.

Last question. Should I use the included Wraith Spire RGB, CM Hyper 212+ EVO, DC Gammax 400, or Corsair H80i AIO water cooler (I have all 4 on hand).

The H80i will probably give the best temps. I personally like the Wraith cooler, so would choose that one. If not, you can always sell it.

I have 5 UpHere 123-5 RGB fans coming for this system. I may check temps but am considering putting one of the UpHere RGB fans on the cooler I end up using.

Why do you prefer the Wraith?

Basically my wife wanted a "Albino Build" so I'm giving her my 1700x and replacing it with mine.

I like the way it looks. Cools reasonably well. Was originally mean to be temporary, but I hit my peak boost clocks with it, so it's good enough for me. My H105 didn't fit right and performed worse. There may have been something wrong with the mounting kit I was sent, though.

I've never seen one in person. However if anyone uses the Wraith RGB it will be my wife in the Phantek 300. I prefer the best cooling so will see how
