How can I improve this 9900k build?
I am going to replace my old 3770k build with a new 9900k build. Are there any components I should change before I buy everything? I don't mind spending a bit more on components that will be a better choice, but I don't want to hugely increase the cost of the build. I want to get this right first time as I will probably not change these components for another 5+ years.
GPU: 1080ti (from old build)
MB: Asus Maximus XI Extreme
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 32GB 2x16 3200MHz (CMK32GX4M2B3200C16)
SSD: Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB
Case:Fractal Design Meshify C
Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
Fans: Noctua NF-A14 ULN, NF-A12 ULN
PSU: Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 1000W
I know the PSU is huge overkill but I want it to run in fanless mode for silence and have a lot of wattage headroom. Only thing I'm keeping from the old build is the 1080ti. I will upgrade the gpu later down the line, probably skipping the 2080ti. I'm not going to run a custom watercooling loop like my old build as I want less maintenance with this one, so I'm going to put a NH-D15 on the CPU and call it a day.
I only use this PC for gaming. Silence is also important to me.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
