Hi I am planning on upgrading my current pc setup to something with a bit more power to it. Mainly for video editing purposes, 3D Rendering and some Gaming on the side. I am planning on only upgrading the main components such as MB, GPU and CPU. I have in mind switching from my i5 6600K to an i9 9900K. Below is my part list, and the components I will be adding. Opinions on the CPU cooler and all other components would be appreciated. I am not too certain if the current cooler I have will suffice for the 9900K.

I have currently an i5 6600K, MSI GTX 1070 GAMING X 8GB, and a MSI Z170A-G45 Gaming MB.

Notice the 2080 instead of a 2070 for less than you list.

Just a suggestion ;)

Definitely a good suggestions, but I would like to stick to an Intel processor. Ryzen CPU's are not something im particularly thinking about as an option even if they are cheaper than intel.

Coming from someone that owns both a 7820x and 9900k rig, I can attest that Ryzen is a very viable option and its more than just cheaper. The 9900k will need some serious cooling if you want to run it over 5.0ghz on all cores. The h100i will not be adequate.

It also may be worth waiting until Ryzen 3 drops since it looks like it will give the 9900k a run for its money with both price and performance since its rumored to also be over 5ghz stock.

Where is the computer Case?

I currently use an NZXT H440, that I might possibly replace as the power button has stopped working. I've been using the reset/restart button as the power on for now.

H500 is $70 and the Focus G is $50, both good cases.

The H500 that test19 suggested is a good Case and for cheaper, the Focus G will do the job as well.

video editing purposes, 3D Rendering

Particular programs you are using?
