  1. Now that it's getting cooler, how are you adjusting your battlestation accordingly? Are you adding a fall touch? Show your desk, setup, fan orientation, room setups etc. with that extra pumpkin spice touch?
  2. We all start from somewhere right? For some, you might've started building since you were 5 👶 but for others, they might have started today. From all my seasoned PC builders, do you have any tips for baby PC builders 👀? I know when I first started building I had almost no idea what I was doing and definitely took way longer than I should have 🤦‍♀️. For example, one big tip 💡 I have is to always cable manage the smallest things. It makes upgrading and changing pieces out of your rig way easier👍 Do you have any other tips? Comment them down below!
  3. We have all been in that situation where we finally finish a build and then BAM the cables look like a bird's nest 🤕. Are you a sucker for cable management or have cables all over your setup/build? All my cable management wizards 🧙‍♀️, do you have any tips and tricks for anyone struggling? Please do show and tell us! For anyone that is struggling, feel free to post photos and maybe one of our friends will be able to help you out!

  5. We take inspiration from everything around us and on the web 🌐. In that sense, what has inspired your PC builds over time? Did you get inspired by either a movie/show 🎟️ or maybe even someone else's build? How long did it take for you to actually be satisfied with how your build looks like 👀? I was definitely mesmerized by all the beautiful all-white builds and I tried to buy all-white hardware for my current PC ☁️ Let us know down below!

  8. After a half year of collecting components for my new PC, the final part arrived a few days ago, the Ryzen 9 5900X. After the build, i went crazy, because the monitor showed nothing than black, so i dismantled the thing partially to foreclose a defect. A bit later, it shot in my mind, that maybe the bios is not ready for the Ryzen 5000 Series, and YESSS, that was the problem and was easy to solve :-D Short Facts about the System: Case: Lian Li "DER BAUER" O11 Dynamic XL white MB: Asus Crosshair VIII Formula (X570) CPU: Ryzen 9 5900X GPU: MSI Ventus 3X OC RTX 3090 Watercooling: all Corsair Hydro X with white Components when available. Softtubing. Fans: Corsair LL120 white. The orientation of the fans may prompt questions, i have thougt about it a long time. There is always a fight between optic and airflow. So i decided to make the side fans as intake and all others as outtake, this is probably not the best airflow, but it looks really nice. If the temps are too high, i can still flip the fans. Merry and healthy Christmas to everyone.
  9. This is just a quick feeler question. I currently have my h100i v2 front mounted in my 460x. I bought both because it's what my old build was, this one is just white, and wanted to have somewhat matching builds for my gf and I. However what I DIDN'T take into account was that my Corsair Vengeance RAM is taller than my old Ripjaws and so the radiator didn't fit on top like it did before. I(like many) do prefer a top exhaust radiator, and was wondering if anyone has, or if it is officially a TERRIBLE idea to mount the radiator to the vent holes on top vs the actual fan mounting points. I want to say only one half of the holes will actually be lined up incorrectly. Obviously this goes against the design of the case, and I have no idea if the metal for the vents is noticeably thinner/weaker than the mounting points. When I first put it together I "tested" it out and it IS possible, I just didn't go through with it because I didn't have time to get a second opinion(too excited to get it together the RIGHT way hahaha). So, no issues or is this a HORRIBLE idea?
  10. I own a corsair k70 rapidfire and I would like to grease or lube my keyboard to make the sound and feel better. Is there any way I can remove the top part of my switch without having to desolder my keyboard in any way? Another thing does anyone have any suggestions for greases or lubes I should use? Is there any way at all I can do this without desoldering it in any way I have the material to desolder but I do not want to risk my keyboard getting damaged. Thank you!
  11. Hello, this is rather a weird question but I got the Virtuoso headphones yesterday and was supprised by the "cracking/popping" sound comming from the hinges in the area where they retract into the headband. The thing is that this sound was present with any other headphones I have ever used but I have seen so many reviews of Virtuoso on YouTube where they perfomed a strach/durability test and the sound Im hearing was not present a single time. So that got me curious if my headphones build is faulty or if this is present with every Virtuoso headphones. There is the sound - [ame] [/ame]
  12. [ame] [/ame] I am seriously considering one of these cases but at £200 its quite the investment so wanted thoughts and comments before commiting. I currently have a *correction* Carbine 400c and everything is a squeeze and i dont like it. With the coamnder pro, led strips, 4 ssd's its all a crush to get the back panel on the case. I saw the 680X and its entire bay for drives, PSU and cabling so obviously a hit but theres a Lighting Node Pro included with the 680x which i wouldn't need due to the CoPro. It also comes with 3 LL120 fans, now I have 3 HD120 fans and would use them all if i can so this is where the LNPro would help? Read I shouldn't mix fan types on the CoPro. Everything else will fit in nice, vertical GPU mount (MSI 1660ti) also appeals to me though it has no RGB itself, I have spare LED strips to help with that. Anyone got thoughts on this case, building in it, or a better alternative?
  13. Good day, I want to build a new PC with Corsair RGB gadgets. Now I am fairly new to PC building and completely with all that RGB. Now I only have a few questions about this (and suggestions are always welcome) The build that I now have in mind: Part Type CPU I7-9700K GPU GTX 1070 ex oc (I already have) Motherboard Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro WIFI Power 750W (I already have) Case Cooler Master Mastercase h500M CPU Cooling Corsair Hydro H115i RGB Platinum Extra RGB Fans / Controllers Commander pro, 4x Corsair LL140 RGB Fans Corsair RGB Led Hub, Corsair RGB Led Strips M2 SSD Corsair Force MP510 960GB RAM Corsair Vengeance RGB pro 2x8GB 3200Mhz With this RGB config (made by yourself) (see Appendices) now I wonder if this RGB setup will work. and whether / how it will be possible to use a 360 radiator (how the RGB and fan controls should be connected) Thank you in advance! (sorry for the Translation)

  15. Hi all. New member here. I recently built a new PC and got the Corsair Crystal 460X gaming case which came with 3 RGB stock fans. These fans are the SP120 models and I have an SP Corsair fan controller with them. I plan on getting up to 6 fans in my case soon but I was wondering if these fans can be replaced with any other model? The reason being is that these types of fans only support 6 standard colours and some lighting features. I want to give my build and desk a cyan theme. I already have cyan set on my keyboard, some led strips and inside my motherboard/GPU with RBG fusion. Cyan is not available with these fans. I know it seems like a petty reason to change some fans, but it would be nice to have something that offers this flexibility. If I can't do anything I may just get another 3x SP120 fans and choose another RGB theme, but I thought I'd check with you guys first to see if there's anything I can change that will help me with my goal? Is there anything else that's compatible with my current case/controller, and if not, how much do I need to change to get to where I need to be?

  16. This is my new build, sort of a build in progress as I do plan to upgrade this over the coming months. Specs are as per my profile, not OC'd at all as I build watercooling for silence not for performance, hence the all Noctua fans build. Machine is currently sitting about 50cm from me and I cannot hear it at all. Probably the first upgrade will be a set of cablemod cables for it (the stock RMi cables are too stiff Corsair!). Also planning to make my own reservoir to mount in the rear fan location so I can move the rear 140mm to the front and get rid of the weird reservoir mount.
  17. Greetings all, its that time again, Time to rebuild my PC I was doing my research and pretty much fell in love with Corsair's RGB support through ICUE. I have put together a decent outline of parts that I think will make the final cut if my budget permits it. I have done several PC builds in the past, but never one with RGB support. so I wast entirely sure if I had everything I needed. or if I needed to purchase separately one of those RGB controller panels, I've seen. I must admit I was disappointed when I learned that Corsair doesn't manufacture motherboards. I was very saddend when I learned that ICUE wouldn't control my mobo lighting. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/6q7VxG Also Its been a while since i've done a total rebuild, so I welcome any comments/questions/concerns/tips about the parts I have chosen
