Description

My first ever computer build, 100% for 1440p gaming. I went from knowing absolutely nothing about building computers to researching extensively through YouTube videos and relying on the lovely people of reddit, I've actually figured it out.

Issues I came across:

I unfortunately came across 2 bad Corsair fans and what seemed like a refurbished/repackaged Commander pro that did not come with all the proper wires. Other then that, this build went very smoothly.

The hardest part of the build was definitely wire management, holy crap did I ever underestimate how difficult this actually was, with the 9 rgb fans, commander pro, thermal probes, 4 pin splitters i managed easily over 35 wires... and gave up after hours of trying not to overlap anywires and just slapped the cover on and called it good, props to those wire managing pros.

I went with a white theme, after I saw a similar build on this website, I absolutely fell in love, truly was inspired.

Looks like some sort of future-y, science containment box. Love it.

Looks great! How do you control the fan colors and speed in a build like this?

Love the way all these parts look together, especially in white. Great job!

Do you have two commander pros? How do you control the fan speed of the 1 extra fan if you do not? Looks great...building one similar right now and I can only think that I need an extra CP for my issue.

Well, the commander pro has only 6 ports for fan connections, I actually had to buy 3 fan splitters and use them all the intake fans. It was tricky to get all 9 fans to work and i believe this was the only method if you want only 1 CP . After research I found out that commander pro actually has a power limit and this build is definitely maxing that limit out, however its works just fine so far. Hope this helps!!

Hello, I really liked your setup, I'll make a similar one, but I have some doubts about VRM. the z370-a prime VRM, is good enough for an i7 9700k? If I go overclocking, can mobo take it? do you know if z370-a II and z370-a have a difference? is it better than the entry z390? example MPG Z390 Gaming EDGE AC

How do the fans work on the Lian-Li case push/pull wise? Which ones are instake and which are exhaust? Thanks.

Probably mounted the radiator at the top to dump the heat off of the radiator. Speaking from my own experience; while radiators keep things quiet and cool, but they still put the heat somewhere.

Are you talking about left or right of the mobo? Mounted to the right, the heat would just dump into the back, behind the mobo, wouldn't it? Either way, the graphics card is on air, venting around the sides, and heat rises. Top vents are theoretically best in this case

the top, according to Nexus gamer and other youtubers is the best spot for exhaust, agreed that it would look cleaner, though then the rad hose would be b-lining across the case, which would bug the crap out of me haha...

100% agree, that was actually a learning curve for me, i literally had to take pictures of my fans and ask why the ugly side was forced to stand outwards for the intake. The tubing didnt fit properly. I actually had to rotate the brackets in order to get the tubing to the left on the case, originally it wanted to route over the dim slots which looked rediculous IMO.

They do make them, they're just few and far between, and mostly, very ugly.
