Hi,
I am looking to build a new PC. I plan on using my current RTX 2080 and that's about it.
My other components are old. Really old.

I have set my eyes on multiple components but technologie is changing and I am mentally outdated.
I need help filling the blanks and or giving advice/suggestion. This would be my Ideal Build.

CPU: i7 11700k
CPU cooler: probably like a corsair H100i dual fan watercooling
*Mobo: I have no idea what motherboard to choose, one that will fit my pre-existing ideas (LGA1200 ready and NVME M.2 PCI4 ready, dual m.2 would be be great)
*Memory: I want 32gb of ram, probably RGB. I don't know if I should stick with 2x16gb or 4x8gb and I don't know if I should go with 3200-3600 or higher.
*Storage: Very important to me, I've set my eyes on the samsung 980 pro ssd 2tb. I want to be able to plug in 2 of those bad boys in the motherboard if possible
GPU: Asus ROG RTX 2080 8gb
*Case: I don't know what case to use, something that wont be too restricting and that will fit all my parts
*PSU: 850w or higher, im not sure

Hi,
Thank you for the suggestions. Do you think the case will fit the 2 fan cpu watercooling without getting restricted by the RAM or some other components?
Also I see you suggested 2x16gb 3200, any particular reason you chose 2x instead of 4x and 3200 instead of higher or lower ?

Always go with two sticks instead of four if possible. 2x8GB, 2x16GB, etc ... As far as the 3200Mhz is concerned, AMD cpu's are far more memory dependent than Intel hence the reason 3600 is the go to for AMD builds. Much easier to lock in your timings with 3200 on an Intel build and you don't take a hit in regards to FPS.

As far as the case goes ... it supports up to a 360mm AIO.

Okay, thank you for this.
As far as the case goes, I think it comes with 3 120mm in the front, none in the back. I have trouble deciding if I should swap 2 of these on top, one in the back, and get a 3 fan AIO... What would you do?

Also I just realised how expensive it would be for 2 samsung 980 pro 2to, what would you recommend instead of these ? In 2to aswell

Leave the three front fans where they are.

If I understand the motherboard, it supports only 1 gen4 m.2 and the rest are gen3
I will go with the case, ram, motherboard, psu and PNY 2to M.2 that you mentionned, I guess I will have to buy an extra exhaust fan for the rear.

Looking good so far

A single rear exhaust fan is fine. The psu also exhaust out the back not to mention heat rises to the top .. and out of the case.

Extra because the case doesn't come with an exhaust fan but I will make the purchase for 1.

Thank you for your recommendations !
