    Hi all, I am fairly new to this forum and was just looking to get some advice/guidance on a new build I am planning on building. I researched some parts and put together I build that I feel like would be powerful enough for my needs. I am planning on the main box being a hypervisor and spinning up VM's as needed ( FreeNAS / ubuntu / windows ).

    My build is inspired by @K D Zeus V2, with some newer parts, please comment on what you think of the build and any parts you think might work better or might be overkill for the build. I am a little worried about temps since the CPU has TDP of 80W. Still looking to see if I can find a better cooler that fits into the case. Anyways please let me know your thoughts!! thank you
