H500m, i7-8700 3.7,NZXT Kraken X72

by andrewakafish


This was my first build. Everything went well apart from trying to sink all the RGB with gigabyte fusion hence why everything is blue at the moment.

Oh one issue which I didn't see was the 2x3.0 internal connectors that the H500m case comes with yet my MB only has 1 internal connection. I have had to order a 3.0 x 2.0 adaptor. So 2x of my cases front usb inputs will be 2.0 :( I still have to tidy up some of the cables.

No problem with games like Black ops, PUBG, Dirt Rally, Battlefield V. Running very cool

Could do with an extra 3.0 internal for my build

All the rgb in your pc was able to sync with the Gigabyte including the NZXT cooler? Clean build +1 The only downside is that you spent too much money on that ram and for games, that monitor is overkill for your 2070. Did you get a better deal on that 2070 than the price in the parts list?

Yeah mate just ignore the prices on the parts list. Nzxt can't sync with fusion yet

Agreed, super clean build, although, your GPU may be a bottle neck for that monitor and also 32gbs of ram is a lot for gaming. Just as Zirf said. Your parts are your choice though, and i have to give you props for how it came together, well done!

I have same build like you, but my GPU didn't have RGB/LED on the first start up. I went ahead install the newest driver from Gigabyte and hoped that will work. Turned out, It didn't work at all. Do you have any issue like my case will you're using your PC?

And how the issue affect you? I mean why did you need one more 3.0 usb?

Hey, I read your comment about this motherboard only having one USB 3.0 port. I'm looking into buying the same board as a bundle with the i8700K from Micro Center, that bundle being the only thing I haven't purchased yet for my from scratch build. I'm also going NZXT H700 and definitely want my USB 3.0 outputs to work.

Is there an adapter that gives you a workaround and doesn't cut performance or would you suggest another board?
