Yes, Corsair has it's own thing and case lights are managed through NZXT's CAM software.

GSkill also has it's own software for lighting controls.

Everyone has their own proprietary software because why make these things easier for the consumer right?

Picture 16. I had originally installed the rad with the fans on the other side of the bracket instead of both rad and fans on the same side. Oops!

jackhammer_666 is exactly right. Though I already had the WD Blue and there are 2 m.2 slots so I figured why not.

970 is boot drive and program (steam, uplay, etc.) install location. WD Blue is where I have all of my games install. HDD isn't really in use yet.

I received the GPU last so it was my placeholder for setup.

I believe they're referring to the RAM in the build guide actually being a fairly popular/common brand in PC builds.

How did you set up the Kraken? My userbenchmark scores are garbage and my only guess is that the Kraken is to blame due to temps being unable to be read by CAM.

Also, just curious as I'm not home and won't be for a while, I'm shopping for m.2s at the moment. Is the lower m.2 NVMe and SATA or just SATA? I know the top (bigger heatsink) doesn't support SATA. At least in my experience on the build day.

Thanks for the suggestion! So from what I gather, this is going to allow the motherboard to control all fans connected to it at once, just at a single speed?

I'd really like to max the fan capacity of the case. I actually went with the RTX 2060 so I expect a bit more heat production. Three 120s at the front, one 140mm at the top and I'm fine with using the stock fan at the back. Is that single fan header going to be able to support the power draw from 5 fans?

Edit: Just saw that it has a sata connection. I'm assuming this helps with power needs.

And lastly, just out of curiosity, is there something similar to this for possibly going with RGB on the fans?

I'm just curious if there are any recommendations for fan splitters/case fans. I'd like to add a few intake fans and the board only has 1 non CPU fan header. I'm not entirely sure what the fan header's max draw is so I don't really know how many I can add without using a controller or the PSU.
