I'm not sure why you posted your build without comment on what you'll use it for, or why you think the parts selected are good choices.

Assuming you sorta-kinda know what you want/need, the only comment I have is you have sold your build short regarding the choice of CPU. The best word to describe the 10980 XE is obsolete. Not only does it underperform the latest chips from both AMD and Intel, it doesn't even support PCIe Generation 4. Gen 4 doubles the bandwidth from Gen 3.

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i9-10980XE-vs-AMD-Ryzen-9-5950X/m935899vs4086

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i9-12900K-vs-Intel-Core-i9-10980XE/4118vsm935899

The 12900K opens the door for DDR5 RAM. DDR5 provides up to 50% more bandwidth over DDR4.

It seems the 10980 is more expensive than either alternate choice, but falls woefully short as a number-cruncher.

As usual, @Cretae hits the key points.

...Including that CPU and chipset combo not being able to fully stretch the performance of:
Storage Set 1: 1x SSD M.2 (2TB Samsung 980 PRO) (NVM Express) (Gen4 PCIe)
Storage Set 2: 1x SSD M.2 (2TB Samsung 980 PRO) (NVM Express) (Gen4 PCIe)

Again, very key point. I'll add that DDR5 is still in infancy and RAM speed importance/benefit varies by software/task.

If DDR5 isn't substantial for your use/you will replace the system before DDR5 has matured as well as need great multithread, the Ryzen 5000 series CPUs are a solid choice. If you
"White lightning": be quiet 500DX white, Asus ROG Strix Z590-E Gaming, Intel Core i7 11700K, 64GB HyperX Fury, EVGA FTW3 Ultra RTX 3090, 2TB WD_Black SN850, Corsair iCue H150i Elite Capellix white
