The storage drive Samsung 990 Pro is having problems, mainly marked loss of health after a short time and with much fewer reads/writes. Can consider the 980 Pro which also debuted with issues but has been stable for past 2+ years.

The timing isn't great but if one wants to wait 6-7 month until Samsung get it right, that may have to be it. My experience with firmware flashes via the Magician UI has not been favorable.

Tech News - Samsung 990 Pro SSDs Report Rapid Health Degradation

Thanks

Aiming for those PCIe 5.0 SSDs. I can wait.

Overall, your build looks quite impressive! Here are some thoughts:

- The i9-13900K is not currently released, so it's difficult to assess its performance potential. However, based on previous generation Intel CPUs, it is likely to be a powerful option.
- The MSI RTX 4090 Suprim Liquid X 24G is an absolute monster of a graphics card, and is certainly a great choice for demanding workloads like video editing or 3D rendering. Just keep in mind that it's extremely expensive and may be overkill for some use cases.
- Both the MSI MEG Z790 Godlike and ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 Extreme are top-of-the-line motherboards with similar feature sets. It may ultimately come down to personal preference or aesthetics, as both should perform similarly well.
- Your choice of RAM - 2x16GB DDR5 G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB - looks solid, with plenty of options in terms of speed and latency. Just be aware that DDR5 is not currently available for consumer use and may not be available for some time to come.
- The Samsung 990 Pro NVMe M.2 SSDs are very fast and reliable options, and will be a great choice for anyone who needs fast access to large amounts of data. Just keep in mind that they are also quite expensive.
- The MSI MEG Ai1300P PSU is a solid choice that should provide plenty of power for your components. Just be aware that it's also quite expensive and may be overkill for less demanding builds.
- The cable sleeved extension kit from Antec is a nice touch for aesthetics, but won't impact performance in any significant way.
- Your choice of CPU AIO cooler will ultimately depend on your preferences, as they should all provide similar cooling performance. Just be aware that they are typically quite expensive and may be overkill for less demanding builds.
- The Lian Li SL 120/140 V2 RGB fans should provide solid performance and aesthetics, and will be a great choice for anyone looking to add some extra lighting to their build.

Overall, your build looks like it should perform very well, with plenty of high-end components to ensure fast and reliable operation. However, it's worth keeping in mind that with such high-end components, the total cost may end up exceeding your budget.

Lately, Samsung 990 Pro (and other series) NVMe M.2 SSDs are giving many problems.

So, waiting for PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2 SSDs and will likely go for an AMD setup with AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D CPU as long as the PC setup don't use N2 cooling i.e. use of CPU AIO 360mm cooler

I gave up on building a custom pc.

Got a Pre-Build one from Lenovo Legion with Premium Care On-Premises Warranty for 5 years. Had bad luck with hardware and RMA is such drag but since I got the Lenovo. I am happy with this system. Something happens just ring up the support and done.

Sincerely
Val.
