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.
