Description

Updated build: Deleted my last build as I have changed my motherboard from a Z370-H to a Z390-F and new memory.

After I delidded my CPU I was still having problems getting a stable 5.0ghz OC with my old motherboard because of unreliable VRMs. With my old motherboard I was running 4,9ghz at 1,395V but it was still a bit unstable. After switching to Z390-F I am currently running at 5.0ghz at 1,36V with temps at 60-65C under load, 50-55 while gaming and 30-35C at idle.

I have added 3 extra fans to my case and switched to top exhaust and a total of 12x 120mm fans for a puch/pull intake config on my 360mm radiator.

I have added a couple of pics from before I updated my build.

This is probably the most RGB I have ever seen in a PC (which looks awesome).

First build I've seen with the fake ram. Good heavens

My feeling exactly about this "fake" ram. It's no different than a led strip. I feel 2x 8GB is more than enough for a "normal" PC but imo it looks terrible if you have 2 empty dimm slots

i7 wasn't in the budget at the time i started this build and at the moment it doesn't feel necessary. The i5 8600k is by no means the best but it is still good enough. And since i have upgraded my motherboard i can always buy an i9 later on

I mean yeah.. the I5 8600K is amazing though. Extremely good all rounder, especially in terms of gaming.

How high do the bottom fans go compared to the back PCI slots? (I'm considering a vertical GPU mount with fans at the bottom).

The bottom slot is blocked by the fan. I have read that you cannot use fans in the bottom if you want to use the GPU riser. Don’t know for sure tho. See the new pic I added of the fans + bottom PCI slot.

What is the clear ROG support?

That is a GPU support bracket to eliminate any sagging. Got it cheap on ebay.

Are you using 1 or 2 CORSAIR iCUE Commander PRO hubs? If your not using the iCue which hub are you using to control all 9 fans?

The HD fans include a RGB hub with 6 connectors. So I have 2 RGB hub with 6 + 3 RGB fans connected and each RGB hub is connected to my Commander Pro. The Commander Pro has connectors for 2 RGB hubs.

Ok ok, cause I bought the 3 packs of the triple HD120 fans and they do have a hub in ea box. So I can connect all 3 of those hubs to a commander pro? Ok so you are doing the method of a picture I downloaded. It shows to 2 rgb hubs connect to the Pro, The first one connects 6 of the case fans and the 2md controls the fans on the AIO for RGB.

For the fan control it shows the 6 plug right into the Pro and the 3 AIO fans connect to the AIO system.

That sound about right?

Then for the fan control, they have

"So I can connect all 3 of those hubs to a commander pro ?" - Only two RGB hubs. "The first one connects 6 of the case fans and the 2md controls the fans on the AIO for RGB" - Correct :-)

"Fan control it shows the 6 plug right into the Pro and the 3 AIO fans connect to the AIO system" - Correct. My H150 AIO is connected to the Pro with a 9-pin USB cable. The rpm of the 6 case fans can be controlled directly from the Pro with iCUE. The rpm of AIO pump + 3 fans is controlled in iCUE via the USB cable mentioned earlier.

Ok... Don't ask me :-) That seems a bit weird. Especially since I posted this build 7-8 months ago
