Review my parts list please

Hey all, I need help with some advice on compatibility for the parts I've chosen. This will be used for gaming and music production. I'm open to any and all suggestions or changes. My location is US. This is pretty much my max budget so the cost can go down, not up. I already see I may have issues between the mother board and CPU?

How about this.

I think 32 gigs of ram is plenty for almost all systems. I upgraded your cooler because the 9900k is a really powerful chip. Your CPU/motherboard incompatibility should be fixed with this z390 board. I took out the 2 Sata m.2 drives because they were driving up the price and 1 terabyte of SSD space should be enough. Instead of those, I added a 4 TB HDD.

I'd also suggest using Cosair LL fans since they'll sync with the rgb on your watercooler and they just look really nice

I just looked. They do look nice I think I'll do that.

You're right. That may be a better option. Thanks!

That looks great! I do still want to keep the 2.5" SSD so I can RAID the two 960 Pros.

I'm liking this too. I'm not too up on monitors so I chose these based on refresh rate and ratings on Newegg. Any other suggestions, or am I good?
