New Build - Community Advice

I've started the process of spec'ing a new build. Still on paper but it's time to ask the Overclock community who helped me immensely the last time for sage (and bad) advice once again. The system in my sig was the result of that advice and it's been a great unit for over 6 years. While it still has life, I have the itch you all know too well. Without further adieu, here's where I am and am headed.

Purpose: A strong home entertainment, gaming, maybe VR system that can still crunch large data sets for work (not video or CAD/CAM, but primarily numbers in spreadsheets database etc). With a full fiber connection it should not be the choke point for Internet access. Willing to spend a bit of coin this time on high quality but not stupid money. I've no interest in bragging rights, just want to satisfy my own standards

Current thinking on spec (and where I need advice/thoughts on all):

PROC: Looking at the Intel i9-10980XE. Yes, willing to wait until it's been in the wild long enough to prove there are no fatal flaws. It's an interesting proc to me performance wise but am also hearing the siren song being sung loudly here on Ryzen. Be it cautiousness or more likely prejudice of having known flawless, even bulletproof performance from my Intel procs for decades I'll have to be convinced there a difference to Ryzen that a human can easily detect. Specs are great but if I need supernatural senses to discern the differences I'll probably stick with Intel.

GRAPHICS: The RTX 2080ti. Pretty settled on this one though naysayers are welcome to poke holes if the objection is beyond price.

MOTHERBOARD: Obviously it'll have to be an LGA 2066 but after that am open to quality based suggestions. Beyond proc and graphics, I want to plug a couple of 1TB M.2 SSD's (Samsung) into the board in RAID config. Have heard whispers though that boards with the lanes near the graphics card can heat up the SSD's and shorten life. May park the SSD's off the board if the performance difference isn't worth it. Am reasonable happy with how my ASUS Maximus V has functioned though some of the engineering was ragged in design and support outside of user forums was basically useless so open to other manufacturers that improve on both.

MEMORY: 32gb DDR4-2933. Been using Kingston for a long time but am completely open to the best quality recommendations you have

COOLING: Have cast an eye to full on liquid cooling but going to take a pass. I'm going to go with closed loop cooling for the proc (probably Corsair 100i?) and also a hybrid cooler for the 2080ti. Will stuff the case with all the quiet fans I can get in it to chill everything else. Recommends on quiet fans anyone?

OTHER: Am considering salvaging other parts from my current system, principally the power supply (Corsair 1200i) and my midtower case (Corsair Graphite 600T).

The power supply certainly has the watts I need to support what I have but wondering if there have been any leaps and bounds improvements in power supply tech. Or is it a bad idea to resuse a 6 yr old power supply?

I like the form factor of the 600T case and with the mesh side filled with 4 fans air cooling has been fine. Principal concern are the rads. The rad for the proc ALMOST fit the case (but not quite). Adding in a hybrid cooler for the 2080ti may mean I have to reconsider the 600T?

I'm one of those neanderthals that thinks computers should neither be seen nor heard so quiet fans and zero lighting, NO RGB unless it can be turned off. You would be hard pressed to point out the PC if you were standing in the same room with it.

So that's the back of the envelope sketch of my new system. Anything I've missed? Help me flesh it out more? Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? Buehler?

Hi,
10980xe is not a gaming chip
Cache/ mesh is a handicap.

High core count I'd be more looking at 3950x or even 3900x either will out game 10980xe easily.
Productivity will still be high as well.

memory wise use this app for the best available for the brand/....

Well if you plan on going RAID M2 SSD's then I think the new Threadripper platform coming out is going to have what you need with PCIE 4.0
