Unforseen Upgrade

So, I was watching the EVGA 12-hour charity livestream, and I won an X299 DARK motherboard. Time for an upgrade I guess.
New parts include:
Intel i7-7800X
EVGA X299 DARK
EVGA RTX 2070 XC Ultra
Lian-Li O11 Dynamic in Acrtic White
Intel 8260 Key-E WiFi card

Re-used parts include:
16GB Crucial Ballistix RAM
EVGA G2 1000 Modular Power Supply
Fractal Design S36
Samsung 960 Evo 500GB NVMe SSD
AMD Radeon R7 240GB SATA SSD
Various 120mm Noctua, Corsair, and Fractal Design Fans (9 in total)
Deepcool RGB Kit - 2x 500mm LED strip
Magicforce 108-key Mechanical Keyboard with Kailh Brown switches
Corsair M65 RGB Mouse

I've pushed the CPU to 4.9 on all cores, which I'm very happy with. :)
Just kidding. The only reason I stopped at 4.9 is because I seem to be at the limit of the S36's cooling capability. The MB/CPU are probably capable of 5.0+
