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.

CPU: 9900k
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!

If this build is for gaming and nothing else you can drop the NVME 970 Evo and get an 860 Evo M.2 instead as NVME is at most only one second faster when it comes to game loading times


The 860 Evo 2 TB M.2 is almost $200 cheaper than the 970 Evo 2 TB on newegg

On the 27th, the Ryzen 3000 cpus will be launched. I advice you wait.

+1 for a gaming rig you can save some money on the M.2 and purchase SATA SSD do to the negligible game load times performance gain with M.2. See why with video below.

Last i heard the launch was around E3 so the 27th is only the unveiling
But i agree buying a new system right before Zen 2 is unveiled/launched is stupid

Paper launch maybe to get more concrete info if there will be 12 and 16 cores along with specs and prices.

A bit more factual info on the motherboards but none about the cpus. We do know they are 7nm.

Thanks for bringing that up. I've not been keeping up with AMD in recent years because they have been behind in single core performance. The articles I've seen about Ryzen 3000 look very promising though. I'm going to wait for Ryzen 3000 before I make a decision on the CPU/MB.
