so this project started when I picked up a dudes build feature Corsair carbide air 540 and an asus rampage V edition 10 for a good price and sold my old rig. Then I started building around the motherboard. I never had the funds to put into aesthetics of a build so decided to go for it. First tried to find a new case. Knew I wanted glass. Originally wanted 3 or more panels including left and right side to showcase cable management. But once I saw the Lian Li Dynamic. It was love at first sight! Pre ordered it in white and it arrived 3 weeks later. Next I tried planning the black and white balance as the plan was a white case featuring mostly black RGB internals.
Sold EVGA 1070 and bought the Asus Strix 1080. Very satisfied with the card so far. Goes well with the ROG Asus theme.
Went with 6 Enermax RGB fans as exhaust and 3 Lian Li bora lite as intake. Was able to achieve positive pressure still
STILL WORKING WITH ENERMAX TO GET FANS WORKING AS INTENDED! Waited 1.5 weeks for a new control box since the fans would only work thru power switch and the remote doesn’t work at all. They insisted it was likely control box or IR sensor. Suprise suprise Remote still doesn’t do anything! Waiting to hear back again on how long to get a remote -_- just want them to sync with mobo as advertised but only way to do that is with remote!!! Great fans, but I just wish they worked as advertised out the box.
EDIT: got the remote finally enermax support kinda disappointed me. not the worst but between what i would consider a blunder by support and their standard shipping times the 3 week time frame on getting the remote replaced seemed very avoidable. first they insisted it was the control box and just sent me that. Did not work. did not get that decision especially since i mentioned to them that i did not want to waste time getting it working and was pretty sure the remote was to blame. should have sent both since i am sure these remotes are WAY cheaper than the box and all associated wires O_o
Swapped out 32gb Corsair led DDR4 ram for 32gb quad channel kit of gskill RGB ram running at 3000mhz
One day hope to add a custom loop with translucent coolant.
What do you guys think? Would a different fan config look bette rya think?
Here’s a video of the aura music visualization. I’ll update with a better video once the Enermax fans are working like they’re supposed to :)
UPDATE: another clip showing rock preset after all parts are synced to AURA! enjoy! one day ill edit together some sort of montage why not?
Excellent case, incredible value! And the customer service is top notch. Had a minor scratch on the piece of glass below the film on arrival. Nothing too big but they sent me a replacement right away. This is a big deal to me considering how adamant I was about keeping the glass scratch free, good to see a company standing by its product. RMA was fast and simple in my opinion 5 stars!
