Default RGB Setup Vraag

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)

I have a very similar setup ... Z370 motheroard, i7-8700 CPU, 6 rgb fans in total, 4 LED strips, H115i RGB, commander pro and LED hub connected as per your diagram and all works fine. Mind you, mine are all ML rather than LL fans. I also have Vengeance RGB pro 3200 RAM and that works fine too. The bit that confused me was when you mentioned a 360 radiator as the H115i has a 280mm one?!

Whilst I think about it ... you might want to think about the Corsair 500d rgb case. I personally use the 500d case as I wanted something a bit more subtle .. see these images (N.B. these were taken before I bought the RGB RAM):
