Post My Corsair Crystal 570X RGB Project

Hi all,

Its my first time i do that, but i just try to introduce my Corsair project here.

Let's start with what the setup looks like right now

PC System
Case Corsair Crystal 570X RGB
PSU Corsair RM750x white/black
Board AsRock X370 Killer SLI
CPU Ryzen 1700x
Cooling Corsair H150i Pro Platinium
Cooling Corsair LL140 RGB x2
Cooling Corsair LL120 RGB x4
Storage 2x SSD Samsung 560Pro
Graphics Asus GTX 1070Ti STRIX GAMING
Sound Creativ BlasterX AE-5 Pro Gaming
Memory Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 2x 8GB
Memory Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 Light Enhancement KIT

Monitor: Asus MG248Q 24"
Keyboard: Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 SE
Mouse: Corsair M65Elite RGB white
Pad: Corsair MM800 RGB Polaris
Pad: Corsair MM300
Headset: Corsair VOID Pro USB RGB
Stand: Corsair ST100 RGB

Corsair Commander Pro
Corsair RGB LED Lightning Pro Kit
Corsair RGB LED Lightning Pro Kit
Corsair Lightning Node Pro RGB LED

For the selected components, I took care to keep everything in white / black, if possible, with the focus on white. So I can change the color without any problems. Since most of the surfaces are in white, other colors also have a nice look. Unfortunately, I can not pair the sound card, motherboard and graphics card lighting with ICUE. Therefore, I leave these mostly in white, which then the optics in other colors does not hurt, but also brings a small contrast pure.

Connected are a total of 6 fans, including 4x LL 120 fan (3 front, 1 back) and 2x 140 LL fan (TOP). Furthermore, a total of 12 LED strips are installed. 4 Located in the inside / outside frame of the cabinet and 4 strips on a bare metal bar at the back of the desk. In addition there are 4 stripes that have been distributed. 2 of them are on the back of the monitors and 2 strips are vertically attached to the back of the case. They were glued to the monitors and all others were magnetized.
The controller is a Commander Pro and a Lightning Node Pro as well as the existing Lightning Node of the housing, but the controller itself is not used. The pump and the Lightning Nodes are connected via the USB ports of the Commander Pro. That were a few information about the structure, the peripheral you see then on the pictures.

[UPDATE Time: 10.02.2019]
I have changed the layout for a better overview and also on request added a picture of the wiring on the back.
The wiring will be redesigned as soon as the remaining components have arrived, information on this at the end of the post.

The following components have been added recently
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 Light Enhancement KIT
Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 SE white
Corsair M65Elite RGB white
Corsair VOID Pro USB RGB
Corsair ST100 RGB

I have used the Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 Light Enhancement KIT because it seems to have a small bug with my MB with the dual slot control of all 4 banks with 2666MHz. That's why I dodged the kit, which was great for it to have it completely.
Of course, the lighting looks a lot better in real terms. I also have various profiles for different times of the day and depending on activities on the computer, because the computer is not only to play but also to work.

So now enough text, here are some pictures of the whole thing:

Here are two short videos, but still without audio activation:

Sorry for the quality, it is partly rushing in the pictures, unfortunately my camera today did not want as I wanted. I have to little experiment with the camera and the lighting. Nevertheless, I hope that you like the pictures and the previous result.

At the end of the post, I will always maintain the current ToDo's until the project is done and update everything new at the top of the post accordingly.
It is worthwhile to look in between

Im out, have nice day all
