+ Total (Canada):
I upgrade my pc because i want to stream more and play with better performance. I do not get many trouble building the pc except for the cable management and the management of the led on the fan. When i connect all the fan, i connect them to a lighting control from corsair but it did not work well so i connect all rgb hub from corsair directly to the commander pro and everything work correctly now.
I overcloak the cpu and the ram to get better performance. I successfully overclock the cpu to 4.350GHz and the ram to 3400 MHz. It give me a little bit more than 400 scrore on cinebench.
I will upgrade some part soon too. I want to change my gpu, but the current price is to high so i will wait the next gen and try to precommand a new card. I will add a wireless adapter too, because i prefer to not have a 20 foot long cable to pass around my house. I want to add a headset and a headset stan rgb to fully complete my rgb build. i will probably go with the corsair void pro and the corsair headset stand.
EDIT 15/06/2018: 1) After 3 weeks of use everything is really good. I got a concern from day 1 that sometime on a fresh boot, the light on my fan flicker for no reason, i go on the support forum of corsair and it seem to be link to the ICUE software. When i uninstall it, the problem never come back but the Link software is not really great so i reinstall ICUE. Keep in mind that ICUE is in beta and sometime the lighting on you fan might flicker on a cold start. I found that only restarting the computer resolve the problem. 2) The voltage of the cpu is 1.4 Volt and the voltage on the ram is 1.35 Volt. I'm looking to lower the voltage on the ram because i read that it may be a little bit to high for long time use but i'm not sure. I need to investigate this more.
EDIT 27/06/2018 I add a new samsung 960 evo m.2 of 1TB to the build and discard my old HDD. Really worth the investment!
EDIT 29/06/2018 I found the solution to solve the problem of fan light flickering. The solution i found was to remove the fast starting in the windows powerup options. I don't really care about not have it activated because i bootup from a m.2 driver. The problem look to be between the icue software and this windows setting only with the LL fan series from corsair. I found the solution on this website (support forum from corsair) http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=177368&page=3
Really good cpu. It was really simple to overcloack with the asus rog strix x470-f motherboard.
The lighting on the pomp is nice but might be a little bit overkill. I install it in a push-pull config with 1 set of ll120 from corsair and 1 set of sp120 from corsair that come with the case. In my test, after 8 hours of stress test with my overcloack cpu the max temp was 68C, which is perfect
Really nice motherboard, simple to use and the bios was easy to update with the asus software. It was really easy to overcloack the cpu with it. My only concern was the style, personnaly i like the decale they put on it, but some people may not like it. On another idea, Asus put a little piece on fabric on it. I don't know why, it's not really ugly but really not conventionnal. I give 4 star for those thing.
Really nice RBG DRAM and easy to manage with aura from asus
Fastest ssd i ever get. It write faster than my evo 860 2.5" ssd can read.
Really beautiful case. Corsair add a psu shroud to it so it hide all your cable without buying it at 4$. But keep in mind that all the case is in glass, so it is really heavy and the cable management is really important.
Those rgb fan are really beautiful! The performence seem good nothing more to say
