Description

Well I started with asking a coworker to help build me a computer that would last more than my typical 3 year Dell from Walmart. Roughly $800 range. We work with programs like AutoCad and Cyclone. Sometimes we are able to work from home so with that being said I wanted my own workstation but with the option of gaming should I ever get the urge to try that out. He ended up building me a very nice PC on this site and sent the list to me. I liked it and decided to start with buying the case, i was planning on pricing it throughout a month or two. HAHAHAHA little did I know how many cases and styles there were. So I bumped up the the nice $49 case to a Corsair 570x $160 case. That was the start. I ended up upgrading every part he chose for me. I did so much research. I learned so much but at the end I still had a budget and wanted more and more RGB as everything has it on it. Yeah make fun of me i know i know, ive seen plenty gamers or real computer guys saying how the RGB is just for the "posers" of gaming. I dont care, i wanted a conversation piece as well as a powerhouse, for my needs. All done and said I ended up with a $1700 computer that im in love with. I have plenty of room to upgrade to the water cooled with reservoir one day soon i hope.

I HAVE TO UPLOAD BETTER PHOTOS OF THE RGB - 12/1/2018

Nice build, man! I'm just curious on why didn't you just go with the 8700k? you have an overclockable motherboard with a un-overclockable CPU ...

its really a waste of a 215.00 dollars mother board.

Thanks! Honestly it was for the look. Zero clue on what i was doing. The initial setup i was talking about was only and i5 and a $99 motherboard. Probably would have worked for me but again i went for looks at that point since the case was 4 sides of glass. Cant say all looks as I saw the audio was better on this motherboard and a few other features. The i78700 was a leap in price alone, to add more to that particular part was going to hurt. Maybe i should have skimped elsewhere but again, first build.

I understand. I'm on my 4th build on it took me my third build to really know what i was doing.

Should maybe look into selling that CPU or maybe even returning it and get an 8700k or atleast an i5 8400k, and overclock those son of guns on that sick motherboard.

Just an error on the parts list, this is a MSI MPG Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon AC board not a MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon AC board. This confused me.

Youre right that was my mistake. Thanks! My first one, I have no clue about computers besides how to use one for work. I have one bad photo of it up for the time being. I didnt even take the wrapping off the computer as I still have to take it into work to get a few more programs installed by IT. I was planning on putting a ton up, i should have waited apparently.

By the time I will even need to overclock I will just buy another processor. As I said before this build was for work not really gaming. Games will be a plus if I do get into it but as of right now I dont have time for video games. I need to get the Node Pro for my fans. I bought the HD120's because they were nicer than the SP's, should have done more research as I see now that the LL's come with the node pro to control each fan individually. I had a yellowish theme going on for thanksgiving and now I want to switch to a red and blue theme (would like to do green, red, blue, white) for Christmas and noticed I can only control my mouse and ram through Corsairs ICUE but I cannot control the pump colors or my fans, individually. Only thing i came up with for the fans to be controlled by themselves was to get the Node pro, as far as the corsair pump, i try to set it in the ICUE and it "says" its set to blue and red yet it cycles through all colors. Still have a lot to learn

Have you not used the mystic light software and the jcorsair1 header on your motherboard? The motherboard is suppose to be able to connect to the Corsair fan header and control the fan color through mystic light software. You can also control the Corsair RAM and cooler from mystic light

I have used ICUE and LINK I didnt know about mystic light. I will also have to check on the jcorsair1 header but on a quick google search I see "It is not possible to control the Corsair LED fans other than with Corsair's LED controller. Trying it on MSI's JLED header can even damage the LEDs or in best case simply not work." Not sure if I want to mess around with that especially if i can just buy the node or even control the lights through mystic. I will take a look tonight though. So would the mystic light override the ICUE settings?
