  1. That board has bios flashback so you can update even without the cpu.
  2. Honestly no idea, but you will be getting a better gpu if you sit tight. Maybe buy a cheap gpu for the short term if you don't have one you can reuse.
  3. You only mention gaming in your opening post ? An MSI B550 Tomahawk/Gaming Edge would be a much cheaper option.
  4. You are paying more than twice as much for the Samsung as you would with a good pcie 3.0 NVMe SSD. An Adata SX8200 Pro 1TB for example is 115 Euros on Amazon Germany. https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07K1J3C23?tag=pcp05-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1 Even the 2TB version is 247 Euros. https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07TY2TN64?tag=pcp05-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1 If you still want a Gen 4 then there should be cheaper options such as the Gigabyte Aorus Gen 4, Corsair MP600 and Sabrent Rocket Gen 4.
  5. Are you able to return the board ? If so you could then buy a different one with the bios flashback feature.
  6. It will work. You will just lose two SATA ports as you already mentioned. So the two ports nearest the bottom of the board will be disabled, leaving you with 4.
  7. If you don't mind a non RGB cooler the Arctic Liquid Freezer II 360mm or even 420mm would be my suggestion. That case does list support for a 420mm in the front. You could save some money on the motherboard. An MSI B550 Tomahawk/Gaming Edge etc will handle a 5950X just fine. The X570 Tomahawk is also a lot cheaper. A 2 x 32GB 3200MHz CL16 or even 3600MHz CL16 kit is cheaper. A Gen 3 NVMe SSD like the Adata SX8200 Pro 2TB is also a lot less money. Still a really fast drive.
  8. The retail version of the 9900 has a stock cooler. There is also the oem tray version which is just the cpu.
  9. Pretty certain it is just the box that is different. The cpu is exactly the same for both. https://www.anandtech.com/show/15820/intel-to-discontinue-core-i9-9900k-special-dodecahedron-packaging
  10. You won't see any performance difference between a pcie 3.0 and pcie 4.0 if you are just gaming. Even a SATA SSD is fine for that. The Western Digital SN550 is usually priced pretty well.
  11. That is on the slow side for Ryzen. You should be aiming for 3200MHz - 3600MHz CL16.
