VFX PC build

Hi,
here is a list of the computer parts I am aiming for:
(this build is manly for using sidefx Houdini running/caching water and fluid simulations and rendering with redshift, Arnold and Octane. I will use it to run Cinema 4D and After Effects
with the element 3D from videocopilot as well)

AMD Threadripper 2970WX 3 GHz 24-Core Processor
NZXT Kraken X62 Rev 2 98.17 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
ASRock X399 Taichi ATX sTR4 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 128 GB (8 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB Video Card
EVGA SuperNOVA G3 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply
Thermaltake View 71 TG RGB ATX Full Tower Case

Questions:

1.is the ram good choice since I am not sure those run with the Samsung B-die chip, (according to some PC builders works better with the Thread-ripper processors )is there
anyone in here with a better suggestion?

2.I would like to get the RTX2080Ti but some people told me RTX2080super performs
well enough, what do you guys think?

  1. any thoughts about the rig?

Thank you guys in advance.
