Not sure what you exactly mean from the question. You can see the lights when viewing the fan from the front, even through the front air filter.
The Enermax fans are wider than the Noctua fans I settled on. There is a pretty small gap between the spaces where you fit the 80mm fans in the Core V1 case.
If you use the Enermax 80mm fans, you'd only be able to fit 1 in without modding the case.
I mostly got the Formula for the OLED display. I otherwise would have gotten the Hero instead. The VRMs seem to be okay.
The Spatha is a fairly heavy mouse. I primarily chose it for its unique side button setup since it's easier for me to distinguish each button over a 3x4 array of them.
I would recommend looking at other builds that use the 500D; I would say that my own 500D build is not a good example of its thermal performance. I did note that I replaced the Noctua fans that come with the Ryujin AIO with Corsair LLs that can't push as much air through the radiator, which leads to higher temperatures.
I will say that the front panel fans are definitely choked to some extent, however, and the design of the top vents make it harder for fans to push air out, especially when there is a radiator involved.
Not really with the GPU. Then again, I'm not playing games that are really graphics intensive at the moment. I tried Anthem (GeForce Experience optimized settings put it close to ultra settings if not at such) a month or two ago and I don't think the GPU was having any issues, but I don't remember the temps if I did check them.
Yeah, but it took forever to get it off the glass.
The Obsidian 500D RGB SE comes with a Commander Pro and RGB LED hub for the fans. (You could get also another set of 3 LL 120/140mm fans to complete the set.)
The only issue is the fact that mine shipped with the Commander Pro stuck to one of the glass doors lol
I feel that it's moreso the fact that I sacrificed the cooling potential of the Noctua fans for the RGB Corsair LLs. The LLs have quite a bit of trouble pushing air through the radiator, then a dust filter, then the small holes at the top of the Obsidian.
And even now I have a new problem where Windows 10 seems to go crazy even if I OC 100 MHz above 4.7 GHz all core, so I'm stuck at stock for now.
Yeah I do. (1.07.35) Hopefully some update rolls around and fixes everything for me.
lol no idea
They don't; the GPU brace I got is a separate item.
Haha I wish
