Building first time,so wanted to hear your opinions if im building a mess of a pc or w/e

Motherboard : MSI Motherboard Z390-A Pro ( bought this in a rush,but saw people suggesting this Z390 GAMING SLI }
GPU : Asus GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB ROG Strix Advanced Gaming
CPU : Intel Core i9-9900K Box ( box is cheaper than tray )
RAM : Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB DDR4-3600MHz 2 x8
PSU : Corsair RMx Series RM750x (2018)
WaterCooler : Corsair Hydro Series H100i RGB Platinum

Mostly building for a 1080p gaming and have it as "future proof " ? is the word ? anyway,to have a strong build for couple years

Keep in mind : amateur,first time build,etc

Thanks

Apologies if anything I respond sounds low IQ'ish

Current is 60hz but definitely will buy a 144hz once i have completed the build
1080p is like a safezone in case the build cant keep up with 4k or 1440p

My thoughts:

1. You could build as is.

2. If I can assume that your primary purpose is for gaming and not for batch apps, then a i9-9700K is going to be cheaper and will game just as well as a 9900K.

3. Past a year or two out, there is no such thing as "future proof"
There will always be something better/faster/cheaper coming out.
You have little idea of what you might want to be doing a few years out.
Best to build what you need now and for perhaps a year or two.
If things change, then do something about it.

4. What is the make/model of your case?
A good case will have at least two 140mm front intakes that are filtered.

If you have 160mm available for a good air cooler for a 9700K I would use a noctua NH-D15s.
OTOH, if you insist on a 9900K then I think you need a280 or 360 aio cooler.
My canned rant on liquid cooling:
------------------------start of rant-------------------
You buy a liquid cooler to be able to extract an extra multiplier or two out of your OC.
How much do you really need?
I do not much like all in one liquid coolers when a good air cooler like a Noctua or phanteks can do the job just as well.
A liquid cooler will be expensive, noisy, less reliable, and will not cool any better
in a well ventilated case.
Liquid cooling is really air cooling, it just puts the heat exchange in a different place.
The orientation of the radiator will cause a problem.
If you orient it to take in cool air from the outside, you will cool the cpu better, but the hot air then circulates inside the case heating up the graphics card and motherboard.
If you orient it to exhaust(which I think is better) , then your cpu cooling will be less effective because it uses pre heated case air.
Past that, A AIO radiator complicates creating a positive pressure filtered cooling setup which can keep your parts clean.
And... I have read too many tales of woe when a liquid cooler leaks.
Google for "H100 leak" to see what can happen.
While unlikely, leaks do happen.

I would support an AIO cooler primarily in a space restricted case.
If one puts looks over function, that is a personal thing; not for me though.

About the case its an Turbo-X Erebus II Tower Midi Tower ( greek one ) , its supports 120mm fans
Front 3 x 120mm ( pre installed )
Back 1 x 120mm
Top 2 x 120mm
Haven't bough it yet.
+ I dont think it supports 140mm

The 160mm you're talking about is the air cooler size,right ?
So,like combining x2 front 140mm fans with a 160mm air cooler ? ( if going i9-9700K path )
 
Looks like a very nice case.
3 120mm front intakes is fine.
You can always, if necessary, replace the fans with higher rpm units to increase the amount of intake air.
The intake air is used for both the cpu and gpu cooling.

I can not read the specs, but it looks to me that the room available for a cpu cooler is at least 160mm, sufficient for a noctua NH-D15s that would be my recommendation.

Ah damn,dont worry I re-read the case's specs and yes,It does support cpu coolers 160mm (Damn,apologies on that)
Thanks!
