I9 7980 ex processor
asus x299 motherboard
4 x 16gb cosair vengeance ddr4 memory with option of updating to 128gb
12gb nvidia titan xp graphics card
10tb seagate barracuda pro secondary hard drive
what primary ssd would be suitable as a systems drive
what case would be ideal for this set up?
Do i need any additional cooling? and what?
i know computer basics but a newbie at everything
so i would really appreciate all the help and advice anyone can offer please.
this will be an expensive system so want to be comfortable with all the parts and decisions first.
Also if you think i should use something different and why.
Anything else i should add? Was thinking of the titan v but was told it was not worth considering.
my previous computer was very unstable and though fast was noisy and had alot of the blue sceen of death
i appreciate your time and advice

I’m basically looking for an acer Orion 9000 style configuration
I think Toby got all of it down. Let us know what the machine is used for, but if you're using going all out and getting the best hardware money can buy, so be it.
CPU coolers I suggest getting something like the Corsair Hydro series AIO liquid coolers, great cooling capacity for overclocking and silence or anything in between. I personally have the H115i
Primany drive without a doubt you will need a SSD, min 240GB depending on your usage. But if you're a content creator I would suggest getting M.2 nVme drives, they are more expensive per GB, but you will benefit from your day to day workflow. On the other hand, Gaming or juse general usage SATA-based SSDs will do.
Personally I still perfer a full-tower case with lotsa of 140mm fans. I suggest checking out Corsair, NZXT or Phantek's offerings for cases.
4K and 8k content.
The 10tb hard drive is because I think I'd probably go through that easily. I have a 2tb hard drive just now and it's already full and use mostly external hard drives.
I know it might be overkill but if I'm investing in a system I'd rather it over perform than I waste £2000 or £3000 for a system barely better than my old one.
I know I can get a decent system for that price. But from my point of view it's just wasting money.
Most of the major system builders were showing off systems at the ces 2018 with liquid cooling. And i9 7980ex processors with 64gb or 128gb ddr4 memory.
I'm basically trying to build a system like or better than them with some modifications.
Hence why I'm asking the experts on here about their opinion or advice.
