Re: ViDA

Needs more RGB (j/k) - a beastly setup you have there! Are you controlling the RGB with TT's hubs?

Re: ViDA

i agree, not enough RGB!  Yes, I am using TT's software right now to control the RGB on the fans but their software is buggy or I have an issue with the controllers.  While playing with the settings all of a sudden one of the controllers won't be detected until I reboot the computer.

I have to open a ticket with TT but I just haven't gotten around to it.

Re: ViDA

I would love to use those (Trio 12) fans in my builds, but no Asus Aura support is a deal breaker for me. Preferably I have all light sources controlled with one, in this case Aura. 

Did you try reaching out to them on their Discord server?

Re: ViDA

Na, I opened a ticket with them though so I'm waiting to hear back.

I think I am going to move the radiator up top, i know it will make my GPU cooler but my CPU maybe a bit hotter.

Re: ViDA

Now that I'm looking closer at the fan orientation, you have 3 at the bottom blowing air out, the ones on top are and the ones on the rad are pulling air in - or am I mistaken?

From my experience with this specific case, it can be a bit tricky figuring out the optimal airflow. Most of my builds have the rad on top (blowing air out) and the fans at the bottom as intakes - so it has a bottom to top airflow with some minor turbulence created around the GPU - but not much to affect cooling. With the LC'ed version of the GPUs of course that wasn't a problem.

I always tend to keep all rad air out of the case since it can build up and cause heat issues, but not as drastic as it may seem in theory.

Re: ViDA

3 bottom are intake, then 3 side and top are exhaust.

Re: ViDA

Looks great. Why so many fans?
I think those Sapphire RX5700XT Nitro+ only burn a max of 220 Watts power which is the same as an RTX2080OC.
Is the memory controller on the 3700X allowing you to run your RAM at 3600MHz and pass Ram Test?

Re: ViDA

One word: Aesthetics.  I know I didn't need all those fans, I just bought them for the RGBs.

It is, I ran MEMTEST and everything passed.

Re: ViDA

Try this in Windows 10 : RAM Test - Karhu Software 
It can test large amounts of RAM in Windows 10.
My Ryzen 2700X passed MEMTEST pre boot into Windows 10.
