Yes, I had the same warning. I asked the store where I bought the board to update it for me.

I'm in the Netherlands, so it was actually a bit more expensive. I didn't match the prices on pcpartpicker really. It was actually more around $200.

Thank you! I have the EVGA logo on the graphics card and the ring on the pump turned on. Also one of the LED’s in the strip up top. All dimmed down quite a bit and in a cool white. Just so you a little bit on the inside when it’s dark.

Thank you!

Well, the hybrid is supposed to be a bit cooler and a bit more quiet. And I really like it aesthetically. The only annoying thing is the pump noise on the card is audible. Not loud, but the noise it makes is bit more distinct than fan noise. In hindsight I might have rather used the MSI gaming trio 1080ti. This card is supposed to be ultra quiet... but it is ugly....

Excellent choice! :) I had a blast building with this case.

Hi Cyantan,

Thanks! Would love to see your setup when you are finished.

The corsair fan is the only one that is visible, as the bequiet fans are sandwhiched by the radiators. So from an aesthetic standpoint I chose the corsair for the top case fan.

Cheers!

Bert

Hi Bobby,

Yes, the H500 i-model comes with two LED strips. One on top and one behind the cable cover.

All controlled with the smart controller.

The H500 non-i model doesn’t have LED’s & controller.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Bert

Thanks! I have no experience with other AIO’s. After reading good reviews about the x62 it was an aesthetic decision. Very happy with it!

Thank you so much for the amazing compliments!

To answer your questions...

1 - I like the look of the sleeved cables better than the stock plastic cables.

2 - It is very easy, you can just leave the stock fans in the box and screw on whatever 4-pin fans you like. I have tried the stock fans and there is definitely a difference.

3 - The top fan is very visible, so I chose the ML140 mainly for aesthetic reasons. It is absolutely silent though.

I did change the 120mm Be Quiet fan I used on the EVGA radiator. It doesn't spin on low rpms. So I changed that for a Corsair ML120, and plugged that in the NZXT smart device for better control.

I hope this helps! Looking forward to seeing your system!

Thanks! I love the case. Very clean, as the top and front are one piece of folded metal. The glass panel locks in quite clever, with only one thumbscrew in the back of the case. Good cable management routing. Also the Smart Device is very convenient in combination with the Cam software.

Thank you! The table is a Galvanitas TD4. It's a Dutch design from the 50's. It's from a vintage design store outside of Amsterdam.
