Welcome to the forum pmic1987!

Nice strong Bolt X build...These components should do very well for you! Top I9-9900X CPU and RTX 2080 Ti GPU under water is a great combination for uber gaming performance.

One thing you should consider correcting ASAP.

The Drive 1 DS M.2 drive is a standard SATA III 6 GBPS type M.2 SSD.   You really should take advantage of M.2 NVME for your Drive 1 that is 5 times faster and uses the PCIE bus.   If you contact DS promptly they can make the change to an excellent Samsung M.2 NVME 500 gb Drive 1.   Definitely worth the effort.

Also...just be aware that when we hear of occasional leak problems in shipping, it's usually the hard line tubing.   Looks very cool but its not flexible at all, so it doesn't handle movement (or maintenance for that matter) well.   The soft tubing is the most reliable and easy to work with coolant choice.

Going to slay all competitors with this nice white Bolt X rig either way!
