Woah! New Build-Old Guy Needs lots of Advice!

Good Day to all!

I am new here, so a quick rundown...
I have built over a half dozen, as my wife calls them, Game Boys, In my life.
Not many compare to most of you but quite a bit for me.
I have never gone all in, just kept them simple and as powerful as I could.
This will probably be my last build as I am over 60 now and won't have the $$$ to do this after retirement.
So I am diving off the deep end and going for the something that will probably last me till I can't "Play" anymore!
I am hoping you have the patience to help me through the trials I am sure to come up against.
I have started to design the system and that is most of what I have in my specs.
I will be ordering these parts at the end of the month, Black Friday/Cyber Monday and through to Christmas.
Her's what the wish list has so far:
1000d Of course!
ROG Crosshair VIII Hero(WiFi) 570
AMD 9-3950x (Should be out this Month)
ROG Matrix Platinum(Doubt I will be able to get this but really want it)
Second choice Zotac 2080 ti Amp Extreme then Aorus 2080 ti Xtreme!
AX1200i PSU W/ Blue Corsair Cabling
32g of 3600 Dominator Platinum with Cooler.
MP600 1tb OS drive
MP600 1tb Data drive

Now onto cooling...
2 ea 480mm corsair Radiators
16 LL120s Push/Pull up front
3 LL140 exhaust on top
2 LL120 intake in back
16mm Hard Line Acrylic tube
2 corsair Pump/Res.
EKWB Mono Block for Hero
Depending on Video card/ WB/Backplate
Going with Fittings and Straight tubing rather than Bends.

Add some SSD in Raid for Data/Backup.
K70 Rapidfire KB

Dual ROG PG278QR Monitors.

I will post next some questions about the wiring for the Fans I have been trying to figure out. Back to work for me now.
Thank you in advance for your Advice and Assistance!
Look forward to this project!
