Description

I built this Pc as an upgrade from my old build consisting of an Amd Fx Black Cpu and a GTX 960. When I started pc building I had minimal knowledge of what made a good build. My cable management was terrible, I had trouble at several points to get power to basic components, and I didn't really have a vision of what I wanted it to look like. Five years later I'm a proud self taught veteran, completing builds for my friends, and family. I took a year saving the money for this and I'm happy with it so far. I have a few more ideas for custom mods for the ssds and the front intake fans, but for now this will do.

Hello! This your PC build looks great! I'm also planning my new PC build in this chassis (C700M). Could you please give me some advices about RGB according to your experience? Have you managed to get proper RGB lighting from all the parts - CPU liquid cooler, chassis fans and the chassis itself? If yes, could you please share your connection scheme for all your fans and RGB compoments?

I will use very similar parts - Corsair H115i PRO RGB Platinium for CPU and Corsair ML140 RGB fans for the chassis, but I'm confused - how to connect them. C700M has a built-in fan controller - if I connect all my Corsair fans to it - will RGB lighting work and be manageable from the software? Or should I use only Corsair controller for fans? But will chassis RGB lighting still work in this variant? Or should I use both controllers? But what and in what to connect then?

I already know that I will need to use some third-party tools like CyanLabs RGB Sync in order to get parts from different manufacturers synced RGB between each other. However, the hardware connection scheme in order to get all RGB lighting correctly is not clear for me now.

Sorry for being so ridiculously late on this, i moved a few months ago and spent alot of time acclimating, my apologies. Ill be honest the first time i booted it i didnt get all the lights running correctly. In hindsight a corsair commander pro would have helped a lot as hooking up rbg fans to the motherboard requires splitters unless you find a board with tons of excess rgb headers. I took a bit of a short cut in this regard as the front fans are ml 140s from corsair, they only show white so theyre wired to the hub that comes pre installed on the c700m. The top fans are wired to the board with corsairs smaller hub (the one that comes with multipacks of their rgb fans i forget the name exactly), now the reason i did that was becuase msi mystic light sucked at the time due to bugs and i prefered corsair ICUE. I hope this helps.

Nice build and AMAZING case. That should be featured on the next Star Wars movie! Curious how much the GPU costs and if gaming is the only purpose of the machine.

The gpu was around 600$ when it was first purchased. The part I left out is a lot of these components were sitting there for months unused. After I got the gpu upgrade I made a plan to change up the whole build and redo it from scratch. It's main purpose is gaming and streaming. For the games I play competitively it's completely overkill, but I have a love of really intensive games like Hellblade: Senuas Sacrifice and Monster Hunter world, and BF5. It wouldnt have been possible to play those on my old rig.

The case gives the option to mount the gpu in different positions. It connects to the mb with a ribbon cable seen in the picture.

Can you put this rig's gpu on correctly (unless, it is that way you place it)

Its suppose to be like that. A new way they're trying to implement like the vertical gpu.
