Looks like an awesome system! I've read a lot about the processors and people are saying that the 9900k is a waste of money and it's better and cheaper just to go with the 9700k or even the 8700k, but it's personal opinion. I would also save some money on the m.2 drive...if you want to make that just your system drive, I would make it smaller and then just buy another SSD for your games! Just make sure the case you are getting can fit the rad you are getting where you want it, good luck!
