Default Showing off my Corsair Obsidian 500D build

This is my first custom rig and second build (built a simple rig for my nephew before this), so I'm a new fan of Corsair and to this forum! Really happy with their products. Hope you guys like it!

Edit: Just added a couple of pics of the overclock I was able to achieve.

Thank you, that's very kind! And yeah, those slots were bugging me! ;) Especially when the RGB lights shown through.

Hello,

Beautiful Room, Walls, Floor, Desktop, Lighting.
Beautiful Waterblocks, Beautiful Corsair periferals and components.
The blue color is beautiful.

If Corsair employyes are reading: They should start to build again 2.1 Audio Systems, with RGB in them?

Thank you! And yes, I would have loved to be able to sync the speakers with the rest of the system using iCue!

Question for you, since this looks very similar to how im planning my loop.

Looks like yours goes res/pump -> gpu -> top rad -> cpu -> front rad -> res.

First, is that top rad a 240 or 280, and second, is the top rad set up as intake or exhaust? Looks like exhaust?

Yes you got the loop order correct. And the top rad is a 240 set up as exhaust.
