Description

I moved the case fan to the side so I could put the H100i's radiator and fans on top. The motherboard has 4 ram slots and supports up to 64 GB of Ram. The GTX 970 has 4 GB of dedicated ram on it. I used the sdd to boot and the HDD for programs. I plan on adding more case fans in the future. It is fairly quiet but the H100i's fans do make a bit of noise, If you have it in your bedroom and want to leave the computer open, the just go in the corsair app's settings and put the profile on quiet, when you do that, you can actually hear the HDD more than any fans on the case. The GPU's fans only start once they are needed.

A programmable button was stuck in place.

This is the second build where I have seen someone orientate their liquid cooler head vertical instead of horizontal. What is the reasoning behind that?

Any other way, the tubes would have twisted too much for my like. It really is the only reason behind it.

Where did you get your LED strips from, I am looking for something like that for my next build. Also why does your CPU pump LED stay green?

I got the led on ebay, but it broke sooo, maybe not get it from there. And as for the light, with that cooler, you can download the corsair link app to change preferences such as cpu cooler lighting and fan speeds.

Can you tell me more about the keyboard?

yeah, it's pretty good, the buttons on the side can be linked to any buttons on the keyboard, they aren't separate or new buttons. the keyboard feels nice and i game on it for hours without any problems.

Overall I think you should have spent more money on peripherals then you did! Because how you use the pc is as important as how fast the pc really is. Because if you have a fast pc your going to want to have peripherals that you enjoy using and do not have any problems.

really, even if the peripherals are lower cost, i truly love them and don't regret getting them. I will be upgrading certain components in the future though
