i currently have an i9 10900k on the way (should arrive in a few days or so) i didnt think i would actually get an order in so now i need to hurry up and pick the rest of the parts for a build and i need a bit of help.

i currently have a pc with i7 4790k and a gtx 1080 but i might as well build an entirely new pc at this point instead of keeping the old case and psu.

what i mainly need help with is choosing a good motherboard and case for my new build. However, advice on ram, psu, and cpu cooler would be much appreciated.

I was thinking of an AIO liquid cooler but not sure which are reliable, this would be my first time getting a water cooler.

For motherboard i was looking at maybe the MSI MPG z490 gaming edge but im not super knowledgable when it comes to motherboards so i would like some advice before i get it. If there's a mother board that's more worth it and not much more expensive i might be able to stretch a little more for it. My current pc has an msi z97 gaming 5 which is why i went look at MSI boards for the new build.

I would also like some help choosing a pc case as i didnt even choose the one i had, preferbly one with a little more room that the one i have (NZXT h440) because i have to slide my 1080 in at an angle to get it in or out. and i plan on getting a 3080 eventually and from what i heard will be physically bigger than the 1080.

Also its pretty much a given with most boards but i will need the case and motherboard to support a lot of storage drives, i currently have an m.2 ssd, regular ssd, and 3 HDDs im gonna transfer over to the new pc.

If yall could recommend a good 32GB ram kit that would nice, otherwise i would just buy the first one i see that seems decent.

And the last thing i would like a bit of advice with is what PSU to get, i was looking to maybe a 1000w so i can have extra room to add more to it since the new parts im getting already have a higher powerdraw than the build i have right now.
 
Something like this should be pretty good...

Not a bad idea to use pcpartpicker to spec out your PSU. As for the case, I could be wrong but I believe few modern cases support that many 3.5" HDD slots... Personally, I prefer a mesh front cover for better airflow, and I don't know any such cases with 3 HDD slots (plus a 2.5" one for the SSD). Perhaps someone else can offer more insight.

This does seem pretty decent thanks, but out of curiousity, why choose that air cooler over an AIO liquid cooler?

Some good air coolers can outperform AIO liquid coolers. That Noctua in particular is a nice choice, though the black version is $10 more expensive than the standard.

AIO wont give you anything extra unless you are pushing extreme clocks or looking for bling factor. Then you would need a way better board with excellent power phases and VRMs and way better AIO doubling the price of that combination for a little extra performance, which is not worth it IMO. Also, even if its very rare, when a AIO pump fails, it tends to take away other hardwares along with it more often than not.

The Noctua cooler is one of the very best out there on par with some of the best AIOs.
