100% agree. You could do 2666. The amount of ram is what matters....not the speedAlso, you could probably save some money going with 3000mhz RAM. Someone else can chime in on their experience, but I don't think you will notice a substantial difference with faster RAM (for the price).
+2 for Fractal and Noctua
good advice.Yes, you will be update RAM to 64 GB. There's also some talk about 9900K supporting up to 128 GB of RAM, but you'd need 32 GB modules for that, and see if that motherboard supports that.
I would suggest a Fractal Design case. Also that 1000W power supply is probably overkill, 750W Platinum should be perfectly fine, considering you don't have a graphics card in that list (and you don't need one because 9900K covers it decently for our purposes).
I also recommend getting Noctua NH-D15 cooler. It's a beast, but it's also quiet and cools really well, it can outperform many liquid cooling solutions. Should have no problems in getting that 9900K to work at 5 GHz across all cores.
I am in a simular situation (building a pc for music and some light gaming), and this thread is very helpfull. The only thing that remains a bit difficult for me is the choice of motherboard. I would like one with plenty (10+) usb ports, wifi/bluetooth, and good quality overall. But there are so many to choose from and I am having a hard time reading and understaning the specs. Cant even find out the number of usb ports... Anyone who has the perfect motherboard (socket 1151 - That I know) to recommend?THANKS EVERYONE
So I have been taking your advices and updated the build

So apparently in early July 2019 AMD is dropping not only the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X (500 $) (I don't use the live playing @EvilDragon)
but also X570 Motherboard with PCIe 4.0 that will allow new SSDs that have 5 GB/s speed
@Quasar Anyone have an idea about the pricing of the new motherboards x570?
In case the new SSDs are out of price, what SSD do you advice me for a full SSD setup in the meantime ?
Build should be 813 + CPU (500) = 1313e and then the rest will be for the motherboard and the SSD setup
Gigabyte will even launch a PCIe 4 adapter that can combine 4 nextgen SSDs to go up to 15 gb/s :o
THANKS again you provided a great help
Yes, that might be it. The Jam is powered through USB.I suppose that would depend on how well the hub delivers power to the device (if you power the device through USB)... I have a bunch of stuff connected to my 10-port hub and nary an issue.
Thanks, will go there!I don't, actually. I chose my motherboard 3 years ago, I don't wanna think about motherboards until my next machine, and when that happens, I'm gonna read the reviews before I decide. Worth going for tomshardware and anandtech reviews.
I chose an AsRock mobo and it's been decent. Not the best overclocker, but it does keep my i7-6700K at a constant 4.5 GHz all-core overclock and everyrthing is stable.
