Welcome to the forum Traumahound!

Nice strong Aventum X build. Excellent 8-core/16-thread CPU, top GPU, top mobo and cooling.   I do have a couple suggestions as DS will allow changes if you decide to do so...just ask.   

Either way this rig will do the job!

Be aware that the Samsung 970 Pro 512 GB M.2 NVMW SSD you selected is not as new or as fast read / write speed as the new PLUS model.   Both are plenty fast, but if you intended on selecting the best, it's now the PLUS.

With AVentum X and HydroLux Pro cooling in the best case on the planet for water cooling everything... I recommend you go Stage 2 Overclock on the excellent I9-9900K processor.   Intel makes the K and X Class processors to be fully Overclocked, and there simply is no better safer water cooling solution than having the 2x huge 560 mm rads and a big 280 mm in the DS Aventum!   Get all the CPU performance Intel designed for just $99.

Case fans are a bit more important when there are 14 of them keeping everything frosty.   A fan upgrade here to the better Corsair LL Series RGB fans or the best Corsair Ml Series RGB fans improves performance and gets you longer Corsair warranties.   It also includes however many Corsair Fan Control Pro Nodes are needed. You would sub in the Corsair Commander Pro control module instead of the DS Thermal board, and all your fans would Sync RGB design and get managed via Corsair iCue software.

The Corsair AX1200i PSU is better Platinum efficiency, is all modular & digitally controlled, and has a 10 yr warranty.   DS parts only carry the 1 yr DS system warranty.

The same goes for the DS RAM...Corsair Vengeance or Dominator RAM have longer MFG warranties and both are RGB equipped and controlled via iCue. Inexpensive to switch to Corsair.

If any of these suggestions appeal, to you, don't wait to ask DS about any changes you wish...They are very flexible...

+1

The RAM upgrade takes you so inexpensively from 1 year warranty to Lifetime from Corsair.

Thanks for the info and thanks for contributing so much to this forum. Actually I was going to do the same upgrades but the 400 shipping fee curtailed that. Thanks again.

Lol....Aventum rigs only get shipped on Fridays due to the special packing they do!
The big iconic wooden DS Shipping crate will be a keeper!

Let us know how it all goes for you. We enjoy seeing the photos too...
