Seems OK

Provided your mtrbd. fully supports the cpu9s) involved it should be OK. I further offer that you don't skip on a decent PSU to power all this. I also suggest once it's working and settled in, check into any bios updates or if currently working prior to the rebuild or actual build, to allow the bios to fully support the mtrbd. as that maybe required for best operation.
