Thank you, mate <3 I actually sold this PC to build another one, and this comment really makes me miss it really hard :(

Just to remove the heatspreader from the RAM module.

Microwave oven uses the exact same frequency of radio waves (or rather particles of electromagnetic field) as the Wi-Fi (except the newer high-speed routers which are 5GHz now), but it does so to heat up the food, not to transmit data... I find it funny, and thus the name.

Hello,

I have answered the same question in the commenst. I used 1-to-4 PWM fan splitter by EKWB. There are plenty of similar products, you could even make your own, if you know your way around in electronics. Basically, the 4-pin connector consists PWM pin (sets the speed of the fan), and the feedback line which tells the actual RPM of the motor. These two need to be connected to the motherboard. Then there are the ground pin and the power pin for 12V. These need to be routed to the PSU (doesn't really matter where. You can use Molex, PCIE 8/6 pin... whatever is free and you know there is ground and 12V rail there). But of course, you would need to solder and crimp the connectors. The mentioned splitter functions on the same principle, but everything is done for you.

I eyeballed, really... But something around 30cm for motherboard, 60cm for EPS, and 45-50cm for 8pins, if I remember correctly.

Hey :) http://www.prolimatech.com/en/products/detail.asp?id=1906&page=1 these ones are pretty good, I got them, because I wanted to change them, but then I fugured out, that they have higher starting voltage (or rather the PWM cycle) than Silent Wings - and that's the problem, because they shared the same PWM line in my computer. But other than that, you should be fine with those. Just make sure you connect them in different header (for Case Fan 2, or AIO pump) so you can control them separately.

It surely could. the space is around W12cmxL16cmxH15cm.

It cannot be placed higher. The dimensions are industry standard and the mounting PCIe blocks are fixed. Also, you can only use two-slot card, otherwise obviously there will be a problem...

The DRP3 is even 3mm thinner, so it would not be possible, I'm sorry. If you want full size fans, maybe try to look up some low profile cooler. To be honest, I believe every dual tower cooler is that big... But if you really really really want them there, you can try modding the case. In fact, the fans are mounted to a special perforated metal plate so it should be no problem using Dremel :)

Thank You, that is very rewarding to hear.

Yes, there is no clearance, you will be approx. 3mm short of space. And actually those SW3 will not fit, because you always need to mount the CPU cooler first, those top fans come last :)

Hi!

The answer would be no, unfortunately... There is simply no space. I have low-profile Corsair RAM sticks and even those didn't fit and and half of the RAM's heatsink had to be removed, because it physically interfered with the cooler. If you notice, there aren't that many ITX builds with the DRP3 a that's one of the reasons. Either get heatsink-less RAM, or remove the heatsink... or wait for the DRP4 which comes to the market soon and has this problem worked out :) I don't own the Noctua and have never even looked into it... But what's the point of buying such a RAM, if it will be almost invisible in the end? That is something, you need to evaluate for yourself.

I can't really compare... I chose this case for the aesthetics and the airflow is fine, so I'm completely satisfied.

Hello, I thank You for such a heartwarming words, it's nice to hear :))

I spent some time looking around internet to find a solution, but there seems to be none available... Technically, it is possible to make a device (something like NEXT Hue+) that could do the job, it's not a rocket science after all, haha :D But as I said, unfortunately there is still nothing on the market as far as I know.

Knowing about this problem I was forced to buy a new LED strip. I chose Bitfenix Alchemy 3.0 Magnetic Addressable RGB LED Strip 60cm but they are pretty expensive, which is sad. Don't buy them just yet and I can give you a feedback after I try them (Z370i still hasn't come after almost three weeks), if you like :) There were also options on the Chinese side of the internet... I found gorgeous looking addressable LED strips on alibaba, but each of them had minimum ordering quantity about 100 metres.

Thank you for keeping me posted! Take care, my friend! :)

Absolutely! I will try to find it somewhere in my storage and I can send it to you via email... Just write me your email address in personal message or something :) And it would be sick to see it in black colour, because it was supposed to be black, but I ran out of the filament back then, haha.

Hi! Thanks for the reply. Your username ends with "sk" which is the official shortcut for Slovakia. So I was thinking like "Eggs SK", haha :D

I was shocked by what you wrote, so I checked the manual (page 1-18 / section 12): http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1151/ROG_STRIX_Z370-I_GAMING/E13292_ROG_STRIX_Z370-I_GAMING_UM_WEB_082917.pdf?_ga=2.148329719.1518514734.1522743084-1560477143.1502044794

and there lies the problem. The Nanoxia (or the Phanteks RGB Led Strip, for that matter) Strip are basic RGB Leds that are connected in parallel (or to be exact, I believe 3 of them are always in series with current-limiting resistor and these units of three are then always connected in parallel). So the header has 4 pins, one for each coluor Red,Green,Blue and one for supply (or ground, depending on the application). That means all the LEDs will always shine the same colour. But Asus has now made some new "innovation" that literally no one asked for. They now use only three pins, one for supply, one for ground, and the third is for data. This data pin is basically one-way one-line communication protocol that can control the individual LEDs (it can address them individually due to controlling chips that are inside the strip).

That means you can't use the Nanoxia Led strip with this motherboard, which is a shame, because I ordered the same exact combination of parts (two of these strips and the same motherboard z370i) last week, because I'm planning on building a new computer from scratch :D :D :D :D

That's great to hear! :) I wish you lots of luck. Please, send me the link once it's done. I own Zortrax M200, but you can get the job done with pretty much any 3D printer.

Are you by any chance from Slovakia? (just guessing from your name)

They did come included with the fans... They actually aren't screws, but a simple antivibration "nails".

Absolutely loving the idea built-in pumps (loving it exactly like the rest of the build, haha). Could you, please, tell us more about that? Did you disassemble existing pump, or is it something custom made?

Thank you! Absolutely none. This GPU is straigth-up 2-slot card, so there is like 10-15mm of spare space and the plate beneath is perforated. 60-64°C during playing, 67°C when benchmarking on 100% fan speed (it gets noisy). You can turn down the speed to around 60%, which is bearable and you get temperature around max. 74°C.

Wow, thank you for writing all of this, that's very kind of you :) So is it possible now, if I decided to do that, to make a backup of the current state of my system, then make it a Hackintosh and then load the backup files like nothing happened? Btw, may I leave you a personal message regarding this matter in upcoming days, shall I run into any problems?

Thanks again!

It's not visible in the pictures, but they are mounted from the other side using the included BeQuiet accessories to minimize vibrations... let's call it 'little plastic thing', haha. It looks like a nail but with a small bump at the end.
