I pretty much know what I want so I'm not looking for feedback, but would greatly appreciate if someone could answer a few questions I have.

Regarding the Corsair LL RGB fans. Does anyone know how many of them are included, is it 6?

If it's 6 i'm assuming i'll be able to control all of the fans in my build with the Corsair Commander Pro once I download the iCUE software, right?

Lastly, I already checked the specs on the Lumos case and you can place a 240mm AIO on top. If I leave a comment in the 'Build Comment" box telling DS I want the Corsair H100i PRO AIO placed on top of my case with the Corsair LL series fans beneath the AIO pushing air through it will they be able to do it or do I need to call them for something like that?

Thanks, can't wait to be part of the DS family...

Welcome to the forums g2700!     Pretty strong build here.

Yes the Corsair LL Series fan upgrade should ba 6 matching LL fans.
DS can build your rig however you want.   Comments section at end is for that kind of stuff, but I would definitely double check by calling or emailing to make very certain they see and can follow those add on requests.   

In my recent Lumos build, I used the HydroPro Light Swiftech 240mm cooler...and DS placed the LL fans on top of the radiator in a pull exhaust Config.   I believe Corsair H100i instructions will of course prefer them on top in a push Config to benefit their cooler with fresh air only, but I would want pull Config to help balance & vent the case air with 3 front intake LL fans and just one LL back exhaust fan.. DS can do it any way you like.

Now you should ask DS about the necessity for your add on selection of a Corsair Commander Pro, because I believe the Corsair LL fan upgrade includes that module...it did come with my recent Lumos build.

Yes you use iCue software to control all your Corsair RGB products. Easy to use.

Gotta comment on the proposed build...

While the strong RAM and PSU are overkill here, there’s certainly no rules against it if that’s what you want....lol.    You get the goodies you like and can afford!

Perhaps you need the extra RAM for other uses, but you should know that gaming won’t require or use more than 16 gb these days.

I have one, and do like the strong uber efficient 80% Platinum Corsair digital 1200W PSU...but you could always use a less expensive 750W, 850W or 1000W...just sayin...

OS and video card overclocks in this case are quite unnecessary.   Your card isn’t water cooled, so why stress the already top of the heap RTX 2080 Ti video card when not much video performance is gained?
Suggest you water cool it if you must OC that fine video card...

You already have a top line Asus Maximus mobo with solid 8-channel HIgh Def on board sound, and Intel 1219V LAN chipset, and Asus on board WiFi...why would you want the add on the sound card and add on a LAN board?

BTW...the gaming performance of the also 8 core excellent i7-9700K cpu rivals the i9-9900K if you don’t require hyperthreading with the extra 8 threads.    

There’s potential to rearrange this build a little and spend the savings on something like stronger water cooling solutions... Either way the build will slay all opponents...lol...

Lol I just got a similar config to what g2700 has ...
I think I also spent some unnecessary money on that sound card.
I picked up the pro version of hydrolux cooling solution though. Had learnt lessons that keeping a good temperature is key to performance.
