I had something similar... but gave my GF my 3800X and 2070 Super. Then I got another 32gb edie kit for her... and it was so cheap $125 and performed superb that I got another one for myself next to the one I already had.
64GB overclocks fine to 3800cl16 (edie that is, bdie is heavier to run...
Ok here is me adding a little tiny bit to that.. and I'm a guy that runs 2 Ryzen 3000 rigs and looking to go all AMD when RDNA2 comes out because i'm a huge fan of what AMD is doing atm... BUT.. HOWEVER... Intel.. Old tech YES.. but no.. their 14nm is still competing head to head with AMDs...
The benefit of the Seasonic is that it's 2cm shorter. Which helps in confined spaces. I went with the RM850x and RM650x for my systems. Wished I put the Seasonic in one of them for more space in the bottom for Watercooling.
I got a RM650x and a RM850x just because availability and pricing for these units is better where I currently am (China). But I can confirm that the stock 24pin cable is very thick and rigid. It's not a very comfortable cable kit to work it. I think the Seasonic does better there. Other than...

Yeah I get it. My B450M Mortar MAX had something like that.
And you are right on the performance also. I have the fastest 4.0 drive currently out and compared the loading times of things with my 860 EVO. And in games or windows it doesn't matter at all. The only times it mattered was loading...
I did the opposite. 5x NVME and 1x SATA haha. SATA is not worth buying anymore at current prices. 6.5TB of solid state and 8TB of mechanical. Looking for another 8TB drive on the NAS now. Storage needs are rising so quickly.
Reorganised my mancave a bit today. Still a bit of cable management to do in the corners but good to go for now.
