Question

Criticize the build, please

Hey everyone! There's my build, please tell me what's incompatible or just money-wasting.
Disclaimer: I'm bad at collecting components, so please don't judge me so hard.

Motherboard:
MSI X370 GAMING PRO CARBON
-> $160.07 on ComputerUniverse

CPU:
Ryzen 7 1800X
• 3.6GHz 8 cores
-> $368.60 on ComputerUniverse

CPU Fan:
Noctua NH-D14
-> $74.55 on ComputerUniverse

GPU:
ASUS GeForce ROG STRIX GTX 1070 Ti A8G 8.0 GB
-> $759.04 on ComputerUniverse

RAM:
Corsair Vengeance LPX Schwarz 16GB DDR4 Kit (2x8GB)
• 3000MHz C15
-> $204.40-246.48 on ComputerUniverse

Power Supply:
Cooler Master V Series V1000
• 1000 Watt, 80+ GOLD
-> $200.24-208.40 on ComputerUniverse

Storage:
Seagate FireCuda Compute ST2000LX001 SSHD
• 2TB HDD + 8GB SSD
-> $98.51 on ComputerUniverse

Case:
ATX THERMALTAKE Versa C22 RGB = $68.70

Overall price:

Might I overpay for something? My budget is about $2000-2300. And also, what do you think of the clearance?

What do you mean clearance?

Also I can't tell if this is for UHD 4K gaming which it would fall short on. Or dual 144Hz 1440p displays which again could be disappointing.

If gaming is the goal, why not much more economical builds like:

Clearance

Clearance is a space issues. For example, if the RAM heatsinks are higher than the CPU Cooler radiator, or the GPU is too near to the GPU cooler so it doesn't fit and so on.

The gaming is not the goal, but I still want to play 1440p 144Hz (single monitor).

I'm building myself because:
1. I want to feel this building experience, the feeling that I've build the computer myself.
2. I need a more powerful processor than in the computers on Reddit you've given. I'm a programmer and a 3D modeler, I need the most performance.

Fixing the message

sorry, I meant "RAM heat spreaders", not "RAM heatsinks".
and "to the CPU cooler" not "to the GPU cooler".

That's more work than I'll do here.

That would require me getting docs and dimensions on many parts. This is the work the designer or builder does. For the builds I do it's never a problem since we don't use small cases and even if we find a drive mount in the way we can modify the case.

The 1070 on 1440p 144Hz single is OK but on some games will have to pull back on settings.
