Budget around $3K (USD)
Key components:
i9-9900K or 3900X
Asus 2080 Ti OC edition
Corsair HX850i
Please suggest the remaing components to go with the ones mentioned above. Also, which aio is better among these: corsair 115i RGB Platinum vs NZXT Kraken X62 vs corsair 150i pro vs Coolermaster ML360 R RGB?

P.S. This budget includes MnK and a headset but not monitor.

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor
Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM 97 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Gigabyte X570 AORUS MASTER ATX AM4 Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws V 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL 16 Memory
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
Asus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB ROG Strix Gaming OC Video Card
Corsair RMx (2018) 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply
total: $3054.94

Definitely go with the Ryzen if you are into video editing
the 9900K is only better if you are into competitive esport games at 1080p
AMD do recommend that you use 3600mhz ram

The Aorus Master is the best high-end X570 unless you want to go really high end like the Aorus Extreme but at $700 and a lot more than the CPU itself that's just silly...

As for the cooler
according to this
some of them are very similar so whichever you like
As for PSU if you really want a Platinum get the Corsair HX Platinum 1000W and add around $110 to the total but personally i think a good 850W Gold is enough

None... Well, it depends on what you want out of the cooler.
1)Performance: It'll be nearly identical between all 4 models, because the 3900X is well within each model's cooling capacity.
In the worst case scenario, a 3900X can dump around 200w of waste heat. 280 and 360mm AIOs are designed for 300 and 350w respectively, so neither is going to break a sweat with that cpu.

2)Noise: that's going to depend entirely on the fans.
They're all PWM, so you could run any of them below 1000rpm if you wish and they would all be fairly quiet.
At max rpms though, the ML360R and H115i are likely tied, because their faster fans will expel heat just a teeny bit faster than the other 2 models.
But if you don't care to run fans that high, then it doesn't matter.

3)That's pretty ridiculous of Cooler Master only having a 2 year warranty on that AIO, when the other 3 are rocking 5 and 6 year warranties...
