Description

After a blue , red build I want it to have some rgb in my pc . This is my third build this year (for my self) and I really like it . Building pc`s became an addiction so I start building them for free because its fun . I don't really do any work with computers so its mainly for gaming . I know many will say its an overkill but I have seen people spending on a gaming computer a lot more then me . let me know what you think .

Just a quick question. How many Hue+ controllers did you need?

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 3 points 21 months ago

You can run up to 10 fans on 1 HUE+ so I have 6 fans , 3 per channel .

Zurus 2 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

I believe 1 for every 8 things (things are fans , liquid cooler and light strips)

Thanks.

zaplongaming 1 Build 3 points 21 months ago

why not go with 1 gtx 1080 cause not all games support sli so you would prob get more performance also and it would have saved you money

S0nny_WarBucks58 3 Builds 4 points 21 months ago

Yeah, not all games support sli but a lot do so I'm kinda tired of hearing this. A 1070 will play all games well enough.

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 3 points 21 months ago

To be honest I was gonna get one Titan or 2 1080 but friend of mine was selling these two because he need money so I got them for $250 each . And these gpu`s r like 3 months old .

uberlizard 1 Build 4 points 21 months ago

dang dude thats a steal! I want friends like your.

Cam84 2 Builds 4 points 21 months ago

I'd have done that deal!

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Lol , I will give him $100 more . I feel bad about it and want to help him out . He is a good friend after all :)

Cam84 2 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

I'd still do that deal at 600$ lol

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Of course lol even $300 its a grab .

Abdallh 2 points 21 months ago

its one of the best pcs ihave ever seen but there down you need side of this build its need custom sleeved cable but over all very awesome :)

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

I will , any good places to buy ? I got Some costume sleeved cables for my friend . Bought them from icemodz , great cables but had to wait like two months . Any other places in USA that make them ?

uberlizard 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

I'd wait until there are RGB cables if i were you! ;)

Abdallh 2 points 21 months ago

you get them from newegg i think they are better than cable mod because cable mod getshiping tax so https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812987051&cm_re=phanteks_ph-cb-_-12-987-051-_-Product

SilverWolf149 2 points 21 months ago

Really good build. You didn't overdo the rgb. Just enough to make it great.

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Thanks , I appreciate .

llamasbetrippin01 2 points 21 months ago

What SLI bridge do you have?

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Msi 80mm

llamasbetrippin01 2 points 21 months ago

OK thanks! I'll have top get an 80mm as well because I have the same motherboard and I'm soon going to get another GTX 1080

EpikMark0123 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

Nice and clean build!!!! Cable management looks great i recommend pulling the GPU cable in between the two GPU's just to clean it up. +1

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

To be honest idk how do you mean but I will try that when I get the sleeved cables . Do u have a link of a build so I can see how it looks? Thanks for the advice .

EpikMark0123 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

Kinda just like putting the cables in between the two gpu's then going to the back of the case.

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Honestly , I would but this case is not cable management friendly . Very little space on the back side I could barely push the glass back in place . That's the minus of this case . Also the cover that goes next to gpu and covering sata cables and 24 pin was so hard to get in so I had to force it . If I had to route the gpu cables through there I would not be able to do it .

EpikMark0123 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

Dang didn't know that, good to know at least. Did you put a review in for the case??

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Yes I did . Also its better to get ATX motherboard its kind of tight with e_ATX even tho it fits . If going with m.2 ssd its even better because of less cable . Its possible but tight . If you have 2 gpu`s try to put them in first 2 slots because its hard to connect all the front panel cables , or do it before you install the second card . Other then that its awesome case .

uberlizard 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

Looks sweet! Real shame MSI doesn't like RGB.

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Yeah true .

acp11 2 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Hey question for you....i have two 140mm aer fans as well mounted on my rad and i hear some rattling when the rpms fluctuate. Do your hear anything coming from yours?

Heres a video of what I hear when I first boot my computer.....thats the sound I hear when im either gaming on a rpm fan curve off my grid v2 between 900-1200 rpm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2p6Zk0LdPuA&feature=youtu.be

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

No I don't have that . Mine r pretty silent .

ok thanks!

MSI SLI +1

sammys87gnxgta4 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

i honestly love this build! i also rock a 1070 but you man, you got two! i'll be honest i want to do something like this because its soooooo cooool.

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Thank you :)

Zuri 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

Someone who has a perfect RGB build! This by far is the best looking RGB gaming build I've seen after looking for other RGB builds haha! All you need is RGB RAM if it'll look good on your build!

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Thanks :) I am working on another build and it will definitely have that . In fact I may get a ne trident z rgb it and sell mine .

Zuri 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

I might also go for RGB RAM with my RGB build but I won't buy it until I have all the AMD Ryzen components :P Also, nice choice for the NZXT Aer! IMO it is the best case fans for people like me who likes less cable management not like the Thermaltake RGB fans

Evil_Paroxysm 5 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

How do you like the NZXT Aer's? Would you have any issues daisy chaining 8+ of them? Just curious before I purchase :P

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

I love it . I read lots of comments good and bad about them and I just went for it . You never know what can happen down the road so you can never be a 100% sure . I can only say I am glad I got it , looks amazing . And I don't think you would have any issues if you go up to 10 fans .

Evil_Paroxysm 5 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Awesome, thanks for the reply. I was so torn between Thermaltake Riing, and Corsair HD for a long time. Both had such bad reviews I decided I was going to go straight white Corsair ML Pros...then NZXT dropped this bomb and it seems that they designed around all the issues people had with Corsair/Thermaltake. I also like the rainbow effect you can set them to as my keyboard, mouse, and mouse pad do the same thing.

Lyrix 2 points 21 months ago

wow! this looks dope! 1+! this sli bridge tho!

s.a.wood15 3 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Nice build, but dang those Aer fans are spendy. I prolly would've gone with normal, boring non-RGB fans and saved myself $100. They do look pretty sweet though, gotta admit. Great job!

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Thank you :)

Yahtadi 2 points 21 months ago

I really want every parts in your system, top notch!

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Thank you for that . Every new build we do we get better . I try my best and pick the stuff that I like . The best thing about this that I have fun doing it .

Hey, look! Another build with a lot of attention because it's over the $2500 price range. Good job!

jakesno 2 points 21 months ago

awww, someone forgot their milk and cookies

Mikalton 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

question. what did you use to connect all 5 of those fans? did you use the grid?

Mikalton 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

How do you have all the fans connected into one hue+ if it has only 2 ports

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

You connect fan to fan and the end to the port . So I connected three front to one port and the exhaust fan and radiator fans to the other port .

Mikalton 1 Build 1 point 21 months ago

Oh cool. Is that just for the power of the LED? the fans still have to connect to the hub?

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Yes , that is for led only . Connect the other to mobo or fan controller .

Ice_Dragon 1 point 19 months ago

Helloooo I have a dumb question, is that SLI bridge RGB?

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

No it is not

Asylumnate27 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

What frame rate are you getting and are you having any bottlenecking

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

I only play Bf4 and StarCraft 2 . Getting around 200 Fps on Bf4 and 60 Fps StarCraft 2 . It works flawless .

Royalspud 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Very nice looking build! I see you ended up placing the X62 in the "correct" orientation despite the slight clearance issue with the RAM :)

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Actually , this is different build but thanks for the comment . The one I'm doing now is not done yet . Waiting for CableMod to arrive .

Royalspud 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Ah ok. Let me know when it's complete. I'm curious to see how it turns out!

Zin-Carla 1 point 17 months ago

Love the rainbow

Araujo6 1 point 17 months ago

Your parts list says (6) 140mm fans and not 120mm fans... is that right? I have a Corsair 460x and wanna do this as well if possible.

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

I have seven 140mm fans , five corsair and two NZXT . I guess you have to check if your case can support it .

Araujo6 1 point 17 months ago

Would you mind sending me a link to what you used to connect all your PWM case fans to the mobo? If it's not too much of a hassle I'd really appreciate it.

jated2 1 point 11 months ago

How does it look with the glass panel on? Is it tinted too dark?

Hector1908 submitter 8 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

I would say a little bit too much . It looks good but I like it more clear tempered glass .

Actually, this case came first. At least the anidees one did.

Just got my Trident RGB kit today thanks to Neweggs pre-order

Faizan 1 point 21 months ago

I thought it released on the 27th? You get it a day early?

Jäßßäwöçkëë 3 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

They were suppose to release on the 25th but Newegg sent me an email saying it shipped out on the 24th

Only pieces I need are the CPU/Mobo/ & my sleeved cables which I'm ordering next week.

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Here is the first (I think) Trident RGB build on PCPP.

Faizan 3 points 21 months ago

YAS! I was hoping to see your comment on one of these builds! This comment wasn't even a joke but it still makes my day every time...

How do you do that faded (grey) small text? Oh yeah, and don't click this.
Synchro 2 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

i will find you -.-

Knew I would get someone :-)

Synchro 2 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Pretty clever

Crimsonblade911 1 point 21 months ago

Woah! Thanks for this comment. I would certainly love to have these for my WIP build.

I've been planning on using Avexir's Green Tesla Plasma sticks, at DDR4 3000. Do you think i should stick with those or future proof with these RGB ram sticks. (i do plan to sell my current wip build or at least scrap it to fund my next one)

Further, do you know of any other incoming rgb ram sticks? These look cool but the jagged edges kind of turn me off.

Faizan 1 point 21 months ago

These are "coming soon"...

I'm excited!

[comment deleted by staff]
Crimsonblade911 1 point 21 months ago

Black and green flavors. Green/black cables, and pretty much any rgb i could throw in for more green. So asus strix green setting, msi m7 z270 green setting, and the Avexir ram sticks. Then the nzxt aio cooler rgb leds (mirror style) also green and the case is the Enthoo Evolv, black. Its basically a solid black build with green leds. Will also add TT Riing rgb fans.

In the future i will also upgrade aio into custom watercooling, going for clear uv green cooling.

I hope thats enough information from which to make a decision. I do eventually plan to sell/scrap everything to make a new build so rgb would be great.

Im just asking for opinions and in the end i may just buy both types of ram sticks lol
