Well I made this build. My concerns:

Should I be using a different motherboard? I like MSI and I will admit I had a super bad experience with an ASUS motherboard catching on fire (maybe it was the PSU's fault idk?)

Is my powersupply the most reliable possible? As mentioned above my last power unit ended up possibly catching my computer on fire (or maybe it was the motherboard) and I want a super reliable brand.

Also, what 120mm fans would you reccomend? I need four more. I do play Fortnite and I don't want the anticheat software banning me for a fan controller or something like that.

As far as the 2080ti goes, I am willing to spend more money if it is more reliable. I chose the EVGA one because it looked better then the reviews on the MSI ones and it is semi cheap.

Finally, the newegg link to my case is below, it is slightly different from the PC partfinder one I think.

Titan
Herald
A ton of stuff.
A good amount of gaming (Fortnite, Total War Series, Battlefield Series, League of Legends, New titles)
A little video editing
High Resolution Map Making and Image Making
Using NVIDIA CUDA
For the editing I'd probably get a higher resolution monitor, you can go 1080P/240 for gaming & 4K/60hz for editing.

And yes you need a better CPU cooler.

If it were me this is what I'd get for that budget. I would setup the AIO on top as exhaust, the 3 side fans as intake and the bottom 3 fans as intake (with filters).

You could also go AMD Ryzen and save a bit of cash.

I would not be trying to use a tiny little heat sink with a single tiny fan on a 9900K..period...; your efforts should be spent deciding on choosing between the best AIO or a NH-D15....not a little low profile micro cooler 1.5" tall, even if from Noctua.

I was considering a Ryzen for sure I just have never had one, and for sure if I wanted that it changes the RAM and motherboard options drastically lol. I was also even considering doing a custom loop or something nuts like this Youtube video

Something like a ryzen 9 3900x or upcoming 3950x would whoop the poor i9 for video editng, but the i9 would yield higher gaming performance.

The much cheaper ryzen 7 3700x would be on par with the 9900k in video eding and fall behing the i9 in gaming.

Ok I will use a better cooler lol. At first when I was making the build I had it in some insanely small cube thing from azza that the CPU cooling clearance was low on haha.
