Hi everyone!

I want to build a PC for C4D+Octane Render plus some Adobe CC within the next couple of weeks.
I'll be mainly using it for motion graphics (not too complex though).
Did lots of research and got some great tips all over the web.
I also read through many threads with great tips by Tom Glimps, Smicha and many other experts right here.
So finally, I wanted to double check here with you, just to be sure.

My max. budget is at around € 3.000 (incl taxes and shipping).

Here's an interesting suggestion I got recently, which is basically where I'm at right now:
1 Western Digital WD Black 3TB, 512e, SATA 6Gb/s (WD3003FZEX)
1 Crucial MX300 525GB, SATA (CT525MX300SSD1)
1 Intel Core i7-6700K, 4x 4.00GHz, boxed (BX80662I76700K)
1 Corsair Vengeance LPX black DIMM Kit 32GB, DDR4-2800, CL16-18-18-36 (CMK32GX4M2A2800C16)
2 MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Armor 1011G OC, 11GB GDDR5X, DVI, 2x HDMI, 2x DisplayPort (V360-010R)
1 Gigabyte GA-Z170X-SOC Force
1 Noctua NH-U14S
1 Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Tempered Glass (PH-ES515TG_BK)
1 Corsair RMx Series RM1000x 1000W ATX 2.4 (CP-9020094-EU)

What do you think about this build? Any thoughts, suggestions, changes?

As I don't have my own Octane license yet, I can only post here.
Hope this is an acceptable space for such questions :)

Thanks in advance for any help!
