Hi all, hope you're well! I'm trying to put together a strong editing build for 4k and 6k video + high refreshrate gaming on the side (work first)

I've selected my parts and am ready to pull the trigger, but wanted to see if anyone can spot any potential issues/better opitons for any of these components?

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/Fsgtk6

I need 10GB ethernet to connect to my NAS, lots of USB 3, some USB C, 128gb ram eventually (64 to begin with) and I'll be adding in a load of Samsung 860 Pro 4tb SSDs I already have.

CPU cooler, I've never used anything with water before but saw that one was good - anyone have experiance?

Thanks in advance for any oppinions or advice, I'm not clued up on parts and am a bit tentative about my choices!
 
It sounds like your usage would be better served by going with a Threadripper 3960X. Here is a suggestion.

I ran the PSU through a PSU calculator and it showed only 1KW was needed for the entire thing with 8SSD, 8x32GB RAM, etc... I would suggest you take a look at using a PSU calculator yourself since you know what exactly will be being powered off of it.

This motherboard comes with an integrated 10GBase-T port. Plus a LOT more PCIe lanes than normal Ryzen.

That's great thanks so much! I'll have a look into these parts now. I was looking at the 3960X too and thought maybe it's overkill but paired with that board it looks like the computer will be able to do more for a lot longer, so justifies the investment. Appriciate your time bud
