I'd much appreciate any comments, suggestions, critique, etc: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/9rs7xG
Here's what I'm shooting for:
approx. $1500 budget (not including monitor)
60+fps 1440p gaming with current A-list titles, at least high settings if not ultra
clean aesthetics with mostly (not all) white components w/static, solid color lighting (no over-the-top pulsing, rainbows, etc.)
fairly future-proof, able to do the above with new titles slated for the next 1-3 years
will be on a 24-inch (or maybe 27") G-Sync monitor (not in list)
Am I getting excellent price-vs-performance balance in every component? (I know I'm splurging a little going for the 2070 over a 2060 GPU, but I want the extra bit of FPS)
Will the 2070 GPU be bottlenecked by an overclocked Ryzen 5 2600x?
Is it worth the extra $25-30 for the NZXT H500i case, rather than the H500?
How can I ensure positive pressure air flow with 2 intake (from the Kraken H62) and 2 exhaust (included with case) fans?
Since the RTX line is pretty new and does ray tracing that's not yet widely supported, can I be confident that the 2070 will reasonably handle future games that support it?

Thanks for your feedback!
Edit: per convos with icetorch (thanks!), swapped out the Samsung EVO 860 to a Crucial MX500 1TB. $35 less but still carries a 5-year warranty.
