    My stuff is here!
    I've been setting up the basics first, but I'm taking it real slow, and getting the cables right as I do it.
    The wiring/cabling is totally different then what I have had the last few years.
    For example I need to figure out how I want to set up the RGB using Phanteks system,.

    Plus I need to set up my AIO on top facing down, instead of facing out(like on my In Win 303), I'll see less RGB effects now on my Riing fans
    I also had to turn the fans around on the rad as intake.

    I have these parts coming in today. Can't wait to get it on the bench and start testing.
    Good choice for MB, many go for A320 which is a dead end.

    I agree. I wanted to give this client an upgrade path for the future.

    Intel doesn't have comparable CPU in that price range. Closest one would be i3 8100 but with worse GPU and no OC.

    Ahh ok Mike, I don't think about the price as much as others do, sorry.

    Well, when you go for lowest processor, price is most probably the cause.

    For sub $500 in upgrades Ryzen is the only way to go. I spent three days trying to find the best bang for the buck for this client. AMD all the way.

    And finished.
    Nothing shorted, and the system works and new fans too.

    Only problem is two new RGB strips not turning on, and my pump RGB stays blue & green.
    It's definitely in the wiring, but I'm tired, it's 10pm now, I'll look into it more tomorrow.

    Oh, does any one know how to make the Phanteks fans, RGB run off AURA, instead of the cases button?

    You might have to ask Steve, when he is back on.....he would know.
