I'd use this tool and grab a set of B-Die since the price premium usually isn't much over non-B-Die and OCing headroom is a lot higher.

Otherwise looks fine, maybe grab a non-NVME drive in a higher capacity and swap for Gelid Extreme or MX4? NVME drives make little difference for most people and Arctic Silver lost the thermal paste crown ages ago (though admittedly the difference between great paste and meh paste is ~5c max).

And why no 9600K/Z390? Soldered die and more features on the motherboard/generally beefier VRMs for roughly the same prices.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)

I'd only get the 8600k if I had plans on delidding it. I'd also buy a used 8700k over a new 8600k and a used 9700k over either.

I'd also swap the drive for SATA if this is a gaming rig, the load times are the same and SATA (last I checked) boots faster.
The board I'd swap for a Taichi, UD or Aorus.

Okay apparently RAM is more confusing than it was years ago. I spent a while yesterday on MSI's page trying to figure out which ram to get

The H115i is not that good of a cooler and my best friend had one and it was super loud and did not cool very well, he upgraded to a NH-D15 and saw a 20c drop in temps

Also if this is a pure gaming rig you can drop the NVME drive as its not faster than a drive with AHCI protocole

H115i fine on a 9900K, seems like we have this conversation 50 times a day. If you got 20c drops from going from a H115i to an air cooler then the AIO was faulty.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)

I've had a bad experience with MX4. It would consistently segregate all of the particulate to the sides and leave nothing but what looked like mineral oil in the contact area. After a month or two the temps would rise. It happened 100% of the time with the tube I got. Maybe it was a bad batch or somehow somebody slipped me some fake junk from Amazon. AS5 didn't cool as well at first, but it was forever in my experience.

Yeah I bought a few air coolers and the fan died so they're over priced terrible performing pieces of junk and you should never buy one and because my friend's uncle's neighbor had the same issue.

Do you at least understand how stupid that sounds?

I could care less about changing your mind, air coolers are the better buy for most people but your reasoning for it is silly.
