sorry for late reply i dont use this site that much, you probably found your solution already but incase anyone else sees this and wants to know. the included controller has a few basic effects and colors to shift through but you need the commander pro to do any more complicated tweaking and for a lot more colors so i would highly recomend that or else i dont think youre getting your money's worth
sorry for late response. this probably wont matter now but i think they are great fans but theyre exspensive as sin and u need the other commander pro with it. i honestly dont use the lights that much anymore cuz i just got sick of it so i have them off most of the time lol. as for airflow i think they are decent but im not really one to ask about fan performance.
sorry for not responding. i love the case but dont get it. newer versions are coming out soon. a mesh version for better airflow and another one thats redesigned a bit with some more higher quality features.
if you can get a used 980 ti for a good price then go for it. it should beat a 1060 and in most cases a 1070 beats a 980 ti by a little bit but 980 tis usually have better OC potential to come out next to the 1070 its still a great card and im not getting rid of mine until the next gen
Its a great mobo, not that much different from the hero series but i always like the code/ formula boards because of the on board little display that wil list 2 digit codes that translate to different meanings on a chart in the manual. really helpful for troubleshooting problems with the computer. Sound card is same as the hero 9, 10 and code 9. Its great on board sound for most people but i just want somthing a bit more. i always feel like the quality of it feels a little flat even though its very clear but its still pretty good. it does have on board wifi and bluetooth but u haev to connect this corded antena to the back of youre mobo to get the most range out if it which i dont like. you can either just take off the ugly antena thing and gimp youre connection quality or you can get seperate router antenas to plug directly into the back ports instead of having some long dumb cord going to an antena which clutters up stuff.
I had mahor issues with asus aura sync not detecting anything or working ( the official one from the code X download site) until i found a download somwhere for a different version of aura sync and it just worked.
Over all i think its a really great board but i think most people might want to just get the asus hero x wifi to save about $40, unless you really like the looks of the code and the other little minor features that some people including me really like
I'm in school for game design and 3d animation while also self teaching myself at the same time so I'm mostly using it for that sort of stuff
Ya I think I have the HTC Vive in the parts list. I forgot I had it in the list until I posted it but I got it used for fairly cheap
I was really tempted to go ryzen but I didn't see it as much as an upgrade to my old 4770k. This PC is for render and stuff but i also do gaming on it and ryzen just didn't see like much of an upgrade to my old cpu. I'll consider upgrading to zen 2 or whatever if that looks nice
i had the same issues with my halo rings, apperantly the indicator arrow was stamped on the wrong side of the rgb cord head or something so i flipped it around and it worked
oh damn i thought this was the in win infinity but its a mod. sick. awesome work dude
ya, was thinking about threadripper for my new build but idk. and the 1800x really wont give much more to me in terms of gaming performance. So i think i may get coffee lake.
im not made of money so spending a few hundered dollars more for another 980 ti that looks the same wasnt really an option. I dont really need a ton of extra cores just better performance per core.
if u mean the 980 tis, they are 2 different ones cuz i got the second one for really cheap so i took the shot. if you mean the 770 with the 980 ti i was using the 770 as a physx card. You can use 2 different brands together in sli they just need to have the same amount of vram
