    I am looking to setup a video editing rig strictly for photo and video editing.

    Here's what I have:

    Windows 10 64 bit 1809
    Gigabyte Aorus Master z390
    G Skill 32gb Ram
    Gigabyte 1060 6gb GPU (didn't install the drivers for this yet)
    DS15 CPU Cooler
    500gb 860 Evo (OS and apps)
    1 TB - 970 EVO m.2 (scratch, cache for Premiere Pro)
    4 tb storage drive (WD Black) - Most recent Finished projects (with original media files also)
    32TB Synology backup of all media
    Multiple external drives with back ups of all media (offsite)

    860 500gb Evo : OS and Apps
    1TV NVME: Media Cache, current project, export drive for renders
    4TB Black : finished projects

    Is there anything else I should look at? Should I move the pagefile off the OS SSD and onto the NVME? Anything else to configure?

    Looks well planned to me.

    depending how much your going to be writing (write speed required and amount of data written per set) maybe the samsung Pro ssds as they use MLC as they have far higher endurance and can handle constant writes for far longer before slowing down (they don't use SLC cache as MLC ssds don't need it so full speed across all of the SSD)
