"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
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.
That is a GPU support bracket to eliminate any sagging. Got it cheap on ebay.
This happens to a lot of ITX builds as the case is so small (stating the obvious). But I agree with @Otterman366 that the side panel is very close to the CPU fan and will most likely choke the airflow.
Looks good but i get the feeling that the airflow to your GPU is choked by your side panel. How much clearance is there between the GPU and the side panel ?
Nice build. The case looks amazing. Are your temps high on both CPU and GPU ? You could consider a delid on your 8700K. The delidding process on a 8700K/8600K is quite simple. I recently did it on my 8600K and i dropped 15C in idle temps. How much clearence are there between the GPU and the glass panel ? High GPU temps can be caused by restricted airflow to the GPU fans.
It is a shame that the Inwin case doesn't have a PSU cover. Even if you have decent cable managment it still looks a little messy. The routing of the tubes on your AIO cooler looks great but not a big fan of the twisted NZXT logo. Nice build overall.
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.
I had similar stability issues with OC on my 8600K. I thought I had been unlucky with the "silicon lottery" and that may be true to some extent but after I delidded I was able to get a higher OC with lower vcore.
4,9ghz @ 1,395V (still a bit unstable)
5,0ghz @ 1,36V (completely stable)
I can definitely recommend delidding your CPU for a higher and more stable OC.
From what i understand almost all 8600K/8700K can get a stable 5,0ghz OC if you delid.
Added a few more photos
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
Added a few more photos (maybe not the best quality tho)
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
Looks alot like my build although mine is not ”all out”.
I have read a few reviews about the Corsair 500D and from what i have read the build quality is good and cooling wise it is not the best case but it is certainly not the worst either. The 9900k is a tough CPU to cool but the H115i platinum should be able to cool it for certain (depending on if/how much you plan to OC it). On the plus side the new H115i platinum it should be alot better than the "old" H115i Pro as the platinum series has a new plate and pump. I would say go for it :-) as the 500D looks great (was considering this case myself as i am a fan of corsair) and i believe you won't have a problem temperature wise but of course i am not certain. Btw (you have probably already thought about this) but make sure you buy a good thermal paste as it can make a huge difference.
You are correct. Top + bottom intake and side exhaust. I choose this setup because i thought it would be the best placement (aesthetically) for the AIO cooler. With this setup i am getting great temps but to be perfectly honest it would probably be better (very slightly) to have bottom + side intake and top exhaust. I would not recommend a negativ air pressure setup as this case has a lot of air holes in the back of the case which would pull in a lot of dust if you use negativ pressure. GL on the build. Post some pics when you are finished and send me the link :-)
You mean the RGB cables ? http://www.lian-li.com/strimer-24pin/
Both 24pin and 8 pin available.
...And I also want to replace my RAM with some Corsair Vengence Pro RGB but since i have 16GB of working memory is seems a waste
I added a couple of more pics
I agree that the color combo on the MB doesn't match the rest of the build anymore. Before i upgraded the case i had an old fractal define R5 case with a white/red color scheme. I want to replace the MB with an Asus Z390-F but since there is nothing wrong this my current board i feel it is a bit of waste of money. I added a new pic with the fans set to Red.
