In order to control the lights of the Wraith Prism (that's the one coming with the 3700X) CPU cooler properly, please connect the cable from the CPU cooler to the USB 2.0 of your motherboard and install the software from Cooler Master. You can control the 3 Led zones independently by using the Cooler Master software.
Another PcPartPicker user gave me this information a couple of days ago, since I was completely unaware of the existance of this software option.

Thanks for the info, man! I had no idea that Wraith Prism had a software control made by Cooler Master.
"Also, I still have to connect my Wraith Prism fan to a USB 2.0 so I can control the RGB effects".???
i suppose you mean connect it to the motherboard RGB connectors (the ones in white colour).
It is clearly not the best and most efficient GPU in the world, but through undervolting and with a very nice cooling solution by Sapphire, it is a powerful unit performancewise, on par with a
GTX 1080 and with direct Freesync support.
Nice machine. Btw, are you sure your RAM modules are correctly installed to take advante of the dual channel? Unless your motherboard manual states otherwise, normally when using 2 sticks of RAM. they need to be placed in RAM slots #2 and #4.
We want some more photos of this beauty! Pretty nice component selection! I went with a 8700k myself, but not I am doubting whether to upgrade it to a 9900k soon or change it for the upcomong Ryzen 3000 series.
Only four letters come to my mind after seeing this masterpiece: E P I C !!!!
Yeah that's the big problem with big CPU coolers. There is no incompatibility with GPU in top slot, but if you need to take the GPU out, it becomes a nightmare.
But Noctua Chromax line is nice and that's the price we have to pay! :)
Nice one and pretty well balanced! I am rebuilding my Z170 Deluxe + 7700k inside same case + CPU cooler. Hope to not finding any incompatibility between mobo + the monster NH-D15S...
But one more thing, remember to enhance your RGB for more stable FPS (joking).
Damn fine! Love how everything matches so nicely!
I am sorry but I need more photos of this beauty! Thumbs up!
So, you tweaked the case to be able to accomodate a Noctua NH-D15??? Absolutely epic!
+1000 for the gamer dog and those Dominator Platinums :)
Nice build and pretty well built!!!! ;)
Nice one! Btw, how have you been able to do a push pull config with the H115i (280mm radiator) in the front (without removing the HDD cages)? I tried my best with a H110i GT or Kraken X62 and could not get it fixed, since screw holes in the case and radiator don't match.
This is an stunning masterpiece! WoooowwwwW!!!! And congrats to the photographer as well :)
What a fu**ing amazing masterpiece!!!! We need more close up pictures of it, more in detail and TG pannel removed, so we can admire such a great job!
Anyone feeling a Featured smell here????
Great build. Could you please add some more pics so we can admire your nice job closer???
I just can say: WooooooooWWWWWW!!!! Amazing job!!!!
Kudos for a great PC and cable management!
Very nice selection of components! But could you add more and bigger pictures? That case really offers options!!
More photos, more photos, more photos....
Did I already say that I want more photos? Look really nice!
Wow, top notch! I just can not understand why you do not have the GPU in the top Pcie 3.0 x16 slot. I know the GPU in the 8x slot will performance with no issues, but it seems strange to me.
Freaking good cable management and amazing look as well!!! Congratulations.
Amazing build and amazing cable management! I also have the Corsair HD120 fans + Node Pro... and organizing all those cables nicely was a big nightmare for me . But you have done a very nice job! Congratulations for the featured.
So much hype around this case and suddenly booohhhhh.....
I think I will keep my Define R5 a little bit longer.
Btw, how is the Gigabyte Z370 Gaming 7 behaving? I am between that one and the Maximus X Hero.
Omg, this is an instant visual orgasm!!! Amazing job!!! And you took into consideration every single detail (exchanging the PCI slots amazed me) Wow!!!.
Wtf is this??? More pics of this beauty, pleaseeee!!!!
Nice component selection, it seems to me a very well thought PC.
There is no interference between the R1 and the Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1 motherboard. In my case, I have the R1 Ultimate.
Of course, with this kind of massive CPU cooler, you have to keep in mind that using a low profile RAM is a must (I use Corsair LPX sticks).
As user LOD_DTOM has reported in his build, using AISuite and Thermal Radar is a pain in the *** somehow. Even if I change CPU voltage in the BIOS, having the ASUS software installed increases the voltage and I can not get it down. It is strange, since I have not had this issue at all with the same software and the Maximus VII Hero and X99 Pro USB 3.1. motherboards I also own.
Obviously we need MOOOOREEEE pics of this monster pc!
Cable management on this one is fantastic!
How do those Corsair ML120 fans perform? They look really amazing!
I am just going to say this: W O W!!!
You're right. Calling it a media server is probably a confusing name and it may be an overkill example of wasting money. My initial idea was to take advantage of the 10 SATA ports + M2 drive that X99 offers and fill it up with HDDs, but it did not happen that way in the end. Who knows if later....
Solitaire at 2K is more demaning than expected hehe
Yep, that's clearly noticeable. This problem has arised when GPUs have become chunkier and heavier. Recently motherboard makers (Asus, Gigabyte...) have started to incorporate metal reinforced PCI connections.
This could be a potential issue and it is not indeed visually pleasant at all.
Thanks a lot for your kind words!
PCPartPicker has been a source of inspiration, specially for my Skylake build. It is still in the process since getting an EVGA 1080 FTW is almost impossible at the moment in my country :(
Imho this build ticks all the boxes to get featured. Bravo!!!!
I have not been a fan of the new Cooler Master MasterCase trend, but I have to admit that this built looks awesome to me. Nice one!
You're right man, sorry! Just first time adding my pc to PcPartPicker community... I am going to delete the completed build and add it once it's ready for the show.
As far as I Know and as PureBlackFire has correctly stated, the tempered glass edition has not reset button. This button controls the LEDS and needs a SATA Power to run. Additionally and according to the manual you have another connector to add an extra Phanteks Led strip.
