Hi,

I am upgrading my computer, this is my first time so I want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

Parts I will be using from my current computer in my new build:
CPU Cooler: Corsair H80i (Will I need an adapter plate or something?, my current CPU is 4790K)
SSD/HDD (Obviously these don't matter and should be fine)
GPU: ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
PSU: Corsair AX860i
Case Fans: Noctua NF-F12 PWM x5 (2 On the CPU cooler, 3 for the case)

New Build
Case: Not Sure yet, thinking Fractal Design Define R6 or Corsair Obsidian 750D
CPU: Intel Core i9 9900K
Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS PRO WiFi
M.2 SSD: Samsung 970 EVO 1TB (Not 100% sure if I want to get this or not, I already have 2 500GB Samsung 840 SSD's)
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16GB 3000MHz (Would really like 32GB but it's just too expensive)

Does all this look like it will be fine? I already purchased the CPU and motherboard because I suspect prices are only going to go up for the rest of the year and not go down until next Feb/Mar.

Is there anything I am missing? I know I will need thermal paste but any other random things I wouldn't think of? I have SATA cables from my current computer but I might get more anyways.

Thanks!

You should be fine, I suggest you get some decent thermal paste, I like Arctic Silver.

Make sure you clean all old thermal paste off the HS base before re-fitting.

As the new mother board is Socket 1151, you should not need a new adapter as the only change was electrical pin out and not physical size (compared to your 1150)
