+ Total (United States):
This is my first PC build, I wanted something that could run anything for the next 5 years (at least) with plenty of room to upgrade and mod to fit my needs. I do a good bit of gaming and I'm in school to become an engineer so I'll be running a bunch of CAD programs as well.
Thanks to Black Friday I was able to get a few things upgraded that wasn't originally planned at a pretty good discount. I did a couple aesthetic upgrades as well (turning that Noctua fan into less of an odd color scheme) I put the stock Noctua fans on the top in the hopes it will improve my air flow, but I'm now concerned that it's pulling too much and not giving my GPU what it needs. Does anyone know a good fan control program to tweak this?
Overall I love the way it all came together. After playing around with some RGB fusion I got everything to sync up and I've kept it set to "music" mode. everything pulses whenever my PC makes noise and react to the music.
I haven't overclocked anything yet and don't plan to until It's necessary. stock XTU score:2274
One problem I did run into is that my motherboard only had one USB 3.0 port, but my case required 2 ports to power the 4 USB slots in the front. to remedy this I bought a USB 3.0 hub https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0794V75LB/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This works pretty well, but I did notice a few LEDs stay on even when my PC is shut down now. I flip the switch on my PSU to remedy this when the PC will be off for a while. any other suggestions to remedy this would be amazing.
