In any case, my concerns are focused on the existence or not of preferred outputs to be used for the 2 CPU 12vEPS cables and the 2 PCIe cables for the RTX2080ti, while the rest is just an observation.
If you are ever adding more devices to your system that require additional PCIe power connections beyond what has been discussed then it would be necessary to upgrade to a much higher wattage PSU as you would be exceeding the limits of the AX1000 at that point anyway.
