I'm using the LLs with my radiator with no downsides so far. For me it was a matter of coordinating with the LLs that came with the 500D RGB SE case. They are not loud and look great.
newegg has a pretty good power supply calculator. depending on your other components it seems like 650w is close to being enough for 9600k and 2080, might want to go up a level though.
That racing rig setup sounds so dreamy. Definitely interested to see pictures of how the rig looks!
oh and btw, your build is stunning.
Thanks for the tip, yeah the GPU fans will start to spin a bit faster during prolonged gaming.
yes she does! wife points and says "that one" and i say ok!
thanks buddy! i'm the lucky one. since switching over her k:d has been going up!
nothing more true than that in life. thanks!
not too many problems, just a bit of shoving it up against the IO shield but it went in fine.
Not a problem, glad you made it work.
The motherboard you picked is ATX and should fit in the case with no rear fan clearance problems. You might want to make sure that the motherboard is on the standoffs that came with the case. You do not need to install additional standoffs. Make sure that the shroud with all the rear connectors on the motherboard are aligned with the cutout in the back of the case. It took me a little bit to make sure those two were aligned.
Yes it did. I ended up with an extra as the 3 ll120 pack came with one also.
You could go with the 1000D though
No sorry, I think it only goes up to ATX
I had a fan related error codes that I had to fix though before being able to boot up but other than that it was fine.
When I had some cable clutter the clearance of the cables in the back prevented the door from closing. But since I cleaned up the cables I haven't had any issues with keeping the door closed.
I mounted the m.2 in the bottom slot just to make it visible. I could have installed it under the heat shield.
The CPU cooler is mounted at the front of the case and I have the GPU cooler mounted at the rear of the case. Not sure what you mean?
Thanks, I really like how your cable management turned out. Definitely better than mine!
I did not have to order custom cables as the cables that came with my power source were already white. But I know that you can buy different color cables from Corsair or Phanteks. Hope this helps.
very clean build, you definitely did a good job with the cable management
That's how similar they look actually. On the 500D RGB SE, the power source shroud covers the entire power source and isn't open ended like the 570x. The 500D RGB SE also doesn't have the thumb screws on the glass panels as the side panels have a hinge and the front panel is not removable.
I was thinking about doing the 570x but went for an Obsidian 500D RGB SE instead
lol thanks :)
