Thanks! And Yes lol I bought the version that only came with one fan because I was buying 6 fans for it anyways. The rad did not fir at the top because of my ram modules, so I stuck it in a push/pull configuration and it worked out great. Definitely get 6 fans for the case lol. I have 8 fans cuz of the push/pull.

Yes lol the Enermax fans were cool, but began to fail and rattle loudly. So I bought the Corsair HD RGB 120mm fans to replace them and they work great. The CPU cooler Is the Wraith Prism Cooler, it wasn't cutting it anymore and my CPU was getting up in the high 60’s when playing WOW at 2k and it really shouldn't stress to much. The AIO from Corsair performs great and my Ryzen 2700X only hits 26c in the same intensive gameplay I put it through before. Granted this could change overtime. I bought the case that had only one fan as I got a good deal on 6 fans from Enermax and opted to install all 6, I didn't buy the 3 rgb fan edition. So i saved money on that to put towards the Enermax fan pack it was $87 for 6 fans lol. I have pics from my old build set up I can add it right now for you to see what it used to look like. The wraith cooler AMD provides worked great when I was playing with my 1080p monitor so i will use it for a small build I plan on doing for my wife.

On another personal note, I came from a sandy bridge chipset so that lasted me from 2012 to 2018 but was way over due with building a new rig that was an actual gaming rig that old pc was a dell XPS 8300 that I slapped a 1050ti in for a year or so until i got this set up.

Well, I see you point. I think the exact rig I have here, will last for quite a few years, if things tend to start showing age, ill begin either a new build or replace parts slowly. X470 has been very great to me I am sure they are a bit on the cheaper side now as the new 3rd gen Ryzen chips have come out. I think the 2700X is like $198, I bought mine for $324 just a year ago. Id say don't hesitate and build your dream PC that fits your target budget if there is one. 2021 is still a bit away, and they will keep coming out with new things anyway, I was a bit hurt after I bought my 2nd gen to find out they will release a new 3rd just months down the lone lol, but its how technology is, a rapid advancing feild. How is your current PC? Might I ask?

I originally built this back in April of 2018. The 2700X is a great chip and its worked great for me. I have had no problems with the pair so far at all. I get over 100fps in WOW in 2k at 144hz and the computer doesn't even break a sweat.

I use corsair ICUE for my corsair products which are the rgb strips and fans. The mobo and cpu fan color is controlled through Gigabytes rgb fusion software. Are some products giving you some trouble?

Hello, I have the same case but the black version. I was wondering how you were able to fit the Corsair H100i PRO to clear your g skill ram? I am looking to water cool my 2700X, the stock cooler is great but I play WOW at 2K now and both my CPU and GPU get into the 50's and my GPU actually goes into the 60's. I am a little uncomfortable with those temps and want to water cooler both. I will be using my Corsair HD fans as my rad fans. Thanks in advance.

Sorry lol, I havent ran any of those tests yet. Do you know if a good internet connection is required or would it affect things like that on firestrike? Id be more than happy to try it out and get back to you. :)

Nah, I never could find a fix. I would tap on them while they were running and it would do the trick but not for long it started to get worse. They are cool looking fans, but Idk if I’d take the chance. Its a good deal though six fans for around $73 now? I got mine at $87. It just got really annoying to deal with. It got quite loud to sometimes.

I just really liked the look of the fans actually lol. I was gonna go with the LL series, but they are a bit over priced. I like the modes you can pit these fans in to also I like how you can have multiple colors on each fan, but id gave to get the cammander pro to do that lol. Thanks for the question though, they are really good and very quite fans!

Hm that’s very strange. I just enabled my xmp and it went straight to 3200MHz on both sticks. Would easy mode do anything for you? I forgot to post some pictures of my ram settings I’ll take some tomarrow morning and see what I can find. Sorry for the late response.

The fans come with their own fan controller can syncs to the MOBO or you can use the remote also. The fan controller can also have a led strip plugged in as well. I’ll take a picture with my back panel off and add it to the pictures.

No problem, I don’t mind answering any questions lol. The bios seemed straight forward to me. Their is easy mode which gives a overall layout and you can also go into seperate settings in the bios. I’ll post a couple of pictures to my build tomarrow morning for you so you can see the actual screen layout.

The MOBO is great! And the WiFi works very well for me. I play World of Warcraft using my 4g LTE hotspot from my phone and that works very well with the WiFi on this MOBO.

Thanks man, I will post more soon I didn’t get a chance to mess with all of my RGB components yet but I will to get s nice theme going. I might not be able to test Overwatch, because where I live now 4G LTE is the best internet I can get. World of Warcraft runs great on LTE, but I have hugesnet for downloads do it takes s while but I’m going to network another computer and transfer those files so it’s quicker. I will post more pictures though!
