Question In need of guidance, is this new custom build optimal or will I experience throttle in some way shape or form?

Hi guys, I don't know much about throttling when it comes to pc setups, I only really know the basics about gaming PC's (GPU, CPU, RAM and whatnot) so I was just wondering if anybody who knows a bit more could tell me if this setup will experience any problems like throttling or if the setup is future proof, can I add SSD/more RAM/what RAM speed can I reach and so on?

If anyone knows stuff about motherboards I'd really appreciate their input on whether this motherboard will let my other components perform to their max capabilities.

A hyper 212 is not enough for a 9700k. The 9700k needs a bigger cooler to run cool and be quiet.
A Corsair VS650 is a budget PSU. I would STRONGLY reccomend upgrading to a TXM650w at least for a 2080ti.
The motherboard is fine. Nothing special at all. I would go for a little better board since you are using a $350 CPU, but you really don't need to.

You could drop the 32gb ram for 16gb and spend the saved money on the above improvements. 16gb is all you need for gaming.

Thanks for the speedy reply, would a Noctua NH-US14S Ultraquiet performance CPU cooler be okay for the 9700k or could you recommend another?
Also I can amend my order to add a TXM650w, thank you sir!
 
NH-U14s is a great cooler.
What is your new case, and why did you need one?
NH-U14s is a bit taller than most coolers at 165mm.
As an alternative, the noctua NH-D15s is a similarly priced cooler that is stronger and is only 160mm tall.

And... I urge you to replace the 1tb HDD with a 1tb ssd.
I suggest Samsung evo in either m.2 pcie or 2.5" format.
