You may need more than 32Gb of memory. Don't buy a motherboard that can't be upgraded to 128Gb.

What Atom said, that amount of memory is inadequate for a workstation nowadays. Everything else looks okay,

Do you have a NAS at work?  Otherwise you might run out of disk space pretty quickly with only 1TB of storage.  Maybe throw in a 7200RPM HDD or a SATA SSD for medium-to-long-term storage.

Yeah, we have a 8TB SSD NAS for cache purposes! Thanks!

I would have gone for a watercooler instead of the fan. I have a 3900x at home with a "nxzt kraken x62" cooler in a "fractal design define r6" case. Not satisfied with the temperatures, goes into the high 80's. Have a i9 9900k at work with a x72, and have never seen it above 50c. I can accept the temperatures at home, but i dont think it would last long as a workmachine. Another thing is that it boosts for everything, and with a fan it would ramp up and down all the time.

Does it need a lot of manteinance? I've heard you have to change the liquid every 4months or so and check tubes, etc....

Thats mainly why i go for fans, low manteinance! haha

Boooooooo, get off the stage. High end air coolers are just as good (some are actually better) and when they fail there's no collateral damage.

Around 3 years ago i built my home workstation for freelancing with exactly the components you pointed me. I must say its the best workstation i've ever had, 0 problems since then and im running windows on it!

I'm just following what this guy says blindfolded hahahaha

Thanks man!
