Very happy with this build so far. GPU doesn't get bottle-necked, as I thought it would. I just precision boost overclocked seeing as a flat OC on all cores doesn't make much of a difference, would rather save power. Highly recommend going AMD for this year, Zen2 will be on the AM4 socket. Intel will only stay with its current business model if you keep supporting them. I game in 1440p so even if i did go with a 9series, I'm only looking at an increase of 10 average fps at most, obviously not worth it. I was a bit worried going with AMD gaming/fps wise, but after gaming and using the system I am very happy with the FPS I get in all games.
Edit** Upgraded CPU to 3700x and working great.
Some helpful side notes if you are getting some of these parts.
*If you go with this Lian-Li case its not quiet. Wasn't made for silent builds, so a fan controller and push-pull on the radiator will help keep Fan RPM's low. I have a total of 12 fans in case all around 800RPM and pretty quiet. Any higher RPM sounds like a JET engine.
*MSI trio is a really well build GPU, with that said... go with the 2070 or any other company's. Not sure why I went with the 2080 to lazy to return or swap.
*Get decent ram for Ryzen, don't go cheap on ram.
*The Carbon Pro MB has two 4+4 cpu power connectors. You only have to use one. Not sure if this is for show or what but a single 8pin can power any of the Ryzen cpu's just fine.
*pulls around 350w from wall at full load, cant really think of anything else atm. Any other questions feel free to ask.
If anyone was wondering, why all the RGB? Increases overall system performance by 10%
