Description

After my last build went the distance of 9 years, I was glad to finally get back into the hobby. What was new absolutely floored me, and felt very lost in the sauce. We're on a bit of a budget, so I tried to stick to slightly above average.

I wish I had have spent a little bit more time researching, as I was almost expecting RGB to be more standardized that I found out. My Corsair case fans didn't play nice with ASUS motherboard. Then for some reason I can't get the Cooler Master ML240R to detect with the motherboard.

Overall it looks great. I set the EVGA GPU to blue, let the AIO do whatever the heck it wants, and gutted the Corsair fans to be replaced with Thermaltake Riing's. Had I not been so impatient I probably could have flagged these woes before I encountered them.

Since this build, I've done 2 others for others. Now that I'm keeping up with the enthusiast community I rarely run into an issue, and hope that I may begin getting build commissions. I've got one I plan on beginning in a few weeks that will be my first custom loop liquid cooling.

Motherboard RGB rarely plays well with anything. Regarding RGB and the other parts...best to stick with one brand where possible. (it rarely is though because I think Corsair is the only company that makes every component (ram, fans, coolers, gpu?, psu, case, etc).

For a GPU I would use one made by the motherboard maker.
