Hi everyone, I‘m looking for help from you experts! I want to build a new pc and after reading for weeks, I find myself coming back to Corsair components again and again. The 500D RGB case seems really nice, but since my last build dates back to 2012, all the corsair link / commander / RGB etc. stuff is new to me and I‘m not sure whether there are inherent mistakes in my plans. Besides normal everyday stuff, the system will be used for gaming (1440p, 144Hz) and photography (LR, PS, occasionally some video). i9-9900K Asus ROG Maximus XI Hero WiFi Corsair H150i Pro Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB (4x, 8GB, DDR4-3200, DIMM 288) MSI GeForce RTX 2080 TI Sea Hawk X Samsung 970 EVO (1000GB, M.2 2280) Samsung 860 EVO Basic (4000GB, 2.5") Corsair PSU AX860i Corsair LL140 2x Corsair Obsidian 500D RGB Any incompatibilities or flaws there?? The idea that CPU and GPU both have their AIO cooling system seemed appealing. The idea was to have the 360mm rad on intake at the front using the 3 120mm fans from the case. The GPU and its 120mm rad would be on the rear exhaust, the two 140mm fans would be on exhaust on the top. An idea was also to replace the fan from the Sea Hawk with another Corsair 120mm LL or ML fan. The two products which may not like all the Corsair stuff are the motherboard and the GPU. Fans (6x) would be connected on the Corsair Commander and controlled by iCUE, but not sure whether this makes sense for the GPU Rad Fan and also whether it would collide with any motherboard software. Same goes for the RGB: The idea was to connect everything to the commander, but then the motherboard itself seems to have RGB of its own and again I‘m worried there are going to be software conflicts. Currently there is no plan for RGB strips, but if not evenly lighted, I may consider this as later addition. For all the regular PC components, the 860W PSU seems sufficient, but then again I have no idea how much power all the fans and RGB lighting are pulling. Any input is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
Hi guys! this is my firs post on this forum. i'm going to buy new case and new cooling system for my RIG. i was oriented on the 115i pro rgb and a Corsair Obsidian Series 750D airflow. now my problem is that on the specification of the case on the Corsair site, the 115i doesn't appears in the compatible coolers list but they write that 280 mm coolers can fit in this case. so, can anyone tell me if that those two components are compatible or not ? Thanks in advance ! :biggrin: Gilko
