Please sanity check my build

Hi all,

I'm in the process of putting together my first build since 2013. My current rig just isn't quite keeping up anymore. I've thrown together the following parts list:
  • CPU - Intel Core i7-9700K
  • CPU Cooler - be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 (might wait for the black version of the Noctua NH-D15 due soon)
  • Motherboard - Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro
  • Memory - 2 x 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200MHz
  • Storage - Samsung 970 EVO 1TB
  • Case - Fractal Design Define R6 Blackout
  • Power Supply - SeaSonic Prime Platinum 650W
  • GPU - EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC Ultra
I'm going for an all black theme. The rig will be for 1440p 144Hz gaming and some transcoding work (Handbrake). I also run a couple of development virtual machines so the 32GB of RAM is necessary.

Please do let me know if you have any suggestions or improvements. Thanks!
