Description

My last computer I built probably 7 years ago. i7 920 overclocked with 12 GB DDR3, swapped the videocard a couple times, most recently with a 1060 6gb. But this machine struggled hard to play any modern games - ie. PUBG, Anthem, Hitman, Apex, etc.

So, I decided to try to build something that would last me awhile and provide me with the ability to upgrade in the future.

The 2080ti STRIX is amazing. It plays all new games on high very well. Paired with the 165 hz ROG monitor, its actually easier to get kills in FPS games.

The lighting took me awhile to figure out because Corsair fans are proprietary and the controller + rgb fan hub required had to be ordered directly from Corsair.

Overall the entire build looks great and performs really well. Boot time is non-existent. Frame rates are in 120-200 range, and it handles excel pretty well. Money well spent!

Cheers :)

That is the dumbest advice.

I honestly wish I had all that money. Also I would have gone with one of NZXT's Kraken AIO coolers just because I think they look better in the H-Series cases.

Were you able to sync up the lighting between different devices in this case? I just recently purchased the H700i case as well as the H100i RGB Platinum AIO and was wondering if syncing the different devices was easily done? If you were able to sync them, could you explain how? Please and thank you!

--also purchased GSkillz Trident RGB RAM and ASUS ROG Strix Z390E, which both have RGB LED so if anyone can explain how to sync everything up that would be awesome!

I didn't get it synced as well as I'd liked. I just got them all to be the same static colour using the individual pieces of software for each vendor (asus aura, corsair cue, etc). I think Asus aura controls the board, the videocard and the memory, the corsair CUe controls the case fans and the aio using the corsair commander fan controller.

If i were to do this over again I would have bought all asus aura compatible devices and made use of the onboard RGB pins.
