Briefing
Hi everybody, this is my first PC Build, finished just yesterday with the coming of the new GeForce RTX 2080. I resumed only my old keyboard and my old headset and just bought everything else.
Sorry for the pics without cable management, I'll do it, I promise!

Temperature Test
Note: temperatures have been recorded while playing at 1080p, maximum available settings and fps, after 60 minutes of gameplay, in October at an external and internal temperature of 25 °C
Assassin's Creed Odyssey and RIME - from 45 to 50 °C
Shadow of the Tomb Raider, World of Warcraft, StarCraft 2, Diablo III - from 40 to 45 °C
Yooka-Laylee Northgard, Overcooked, Dungeons, Frostpunk and many other indies - from 30 to 40 °C
Many software (all simultaneously turned on) like Chrome, Steam, Battle.net, Asus Aura, CoolerMaster Plus+, GeForce Experience and others around 30 °C
Bios - from 20 to 30 °C

FPS Test
- Maximum settings (everything, e.g. textures, anti-aliasing, shadows, etc.), Ray Tracing ON (when possible), 1080p - I used the benchmark mode when available Assassin's Creed Odyssey - from 80 to 120
Shadow of the Tomb Raider - from 90 to 130
Grand Theft Auto V - from 70 to 120
Metro Exodus - from 60 to 90

ARGB Lightning System tutorial
I got very many problems turning on my lightning system, because the manuals were useless to combine more devices.
First of all, I want to remember that I have: MasterCase H500M, MasterLiquid ML240R, two RGB (non ARGB) fans and a motherboard with only one addressable header (needed for ARGB).
1. Connect the two fans and the pump of ML240R to the ML240R controller (right side)
2. Connect the two 200 mm H500M fans to the same ML240R controller (right side)
3. Connect the two RGB fans to the motherboard (or, if you have other ARGB fans, directly to the right side of the ML240R controller)
4. Connect the SATA power cable to the controller (top side), the USB cable and the ARGB cable (both in the bottom side) to the motherboard 5. Download all the software, Asus Aura Sync, Cooler Master MasterPlus+ (both are very buggy), turn them both on and sync them: go first to MasterPlus+, select "turn off" and then "motherboard", then go to Aura Sync and choose a static color. If it works, they are now sync and you can have fun changing colours as you prefer.

I hope you enjoy my build, stay tuned for updates!

Don't worry, those pics were taken when I was still building the computer! I’m going to cable management later

  1. Go through (redo it if you must) and do some thorough cable management and tidy the inside of your case up. You will truly thank yourself when you look inside your case.

  2. Get the poor girl off of the floor, it cost more than most kids first car.

Otherwise great build, high performance you will enjoy for years to come.

This is such a great build, especially for being your first one! The case is hands down one of the best I have ever seen and I love love loooove the rainbow fans. Treat it well. Shoutout also to the shark-like antenna. Congrats my friend, you did a really good job! Enjoy it!

This is similar to what I am recommending for my nephew. I stepped up a couple items, but this is like almost precisely what I am telling him to build. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/ajc9988/saved/#view=BsjJ8d

So, wanted to ask about the RGB management. Are you running it through Aura? Are you using a controller to manage the RGB to plug it in? I was going to do an all ARGB build, but couldn't find the Cooler Master ARGB controller anywhere.

Question: can you connect the H500M to the Aura ARGB controller on the MB? Granted, I do not have Win 10 listed, the mouse, or the headphones, but fairly similar build otherwise.

Did you think of getting a delid die kit from rockit 88 or Der8auer? Along with some liquid metal (I understand, not for the faint of heart).

Also, why 24GB of ram?

BTW, on mine, I plan on the 280mm CLC to vent out the front, three intake fans at the top, and the EVGA Hybrid to vent out the back of the case. All 6 of the fans are hooked into the controller that comes with the three fans for the top intake, which will connect to one of the two RGB headers on the MB. I want to hook the two front fans to the ARGB header on the MB. Hopefully the 280mm can fit in the front without removing the shroud from the hard drive/PSU cover.

Hi! Thank you for your very long comment, I will try to answer ti all your questions. Sorry if I will forget to answer something. I am runnig the only one RGB fan I have, the Motherboard’s led and the RAM using Asus Aura Sync software. I manage the other 4 ARGB fans and the pump led using both CoolerMaster ARGB Controller provided with MasterLiquid ML240R RGB (which is an ARGB liquid cooling system) and CoolerMaster Plus+ software. As soon as Amazon.it will provide two CoolerMaster ARGB fans in my country I will replace the two I am missing.

I tried to connect the H500M to the MB but I failed: the MB just didn’t turned on with all the led connected, and with the only two big fans I was unable to make the rainbow like the one you see in the pics using Asus Aura.

I’m not going to buy a delid die kit at this time.

The reason I have 24GB of RAM is just because of a 3x2 offer.

About your plane I think it is very good, but note: when you hook an ARGB fan to one RGB header on the MB you lost the ARGB capability and you turn your fan into a simple RGB one. My suggestion is just to hook everything to the Cooler Master controller and connect it to the MB using the provided USB cable and power it using a sata power cable.

I’m available to answer other questions!

Note: the H500M has a built-in ARGB controller with only two ARGB header, you should buy other cables to connect more fans to this one, so I discarded it for the MasterLiquid ML240R RGB controller.

Hi! I'm really sorry to have made you wait so long. I've just tested GTA V with its own Benchmark Test: at maximum quality and 1080p res, fps goes from 70 to 120

Nice build. I'm actually building something pretty similar. Did that AIO give you any problems?

  • 15 months ago

Not yet, no problem encountered. Excellent AIO and easy to install.

Quick question: Do the RGB headers on the motherboard work with the 200mm RGB fans?

  • 16 months ago
  • 1 point

No, they don't work with RGB headers on the motherboard. Also, the 200mm fans are ARGB, and the motherboard has only one addressable header. So, it is important to use an ARGB controller (like the one provided with H500M or the one provided with ML240R) and then connect the controller to the addressable header.

How's the temperature?

Always around 30 °C with soft using (web browsing, office, code programming, software development), 40 °C with most of video games (Shadow of the Tomb Raider, World of Warcraft, StarCraft 2 and many indies) and 50 °C with Assassin's Creed Odyssey. No differences encountered after several hours.

It is provided with the case. I found it awesome: it is really a great a case in everything.
