Another 8700k 1080ti set up. Went with some RGB so I can sell it in the future. RGB is a royal pain in the A. In order to get it all synced up at startup without opening software and to shut off the annoying start up effects (orange GPU, ram lights freaking out) you have to first install the separate light control software, turn off the lights, uninstall those and then install the Aura Sync. Also if you want to control the Ram lighting with the sync software you will need to download a separate version of Aura sync that is not listed for the motherboard. I found some reviewers on you tube that couldn't find this and to their credit I didn't find that tidbit posted anywhere.
Undervolted CPU,,, so quiet, Waiting for 2 more PWM Bequiet fans to replace he fractal fans because, the fractal fans wont run less than 60%!!!!!!
Note: I had 2 140 mm fans on top but found that the one in front was just stealing fresh air so I took it out.
Wish I could post a video of the lighting effect, the color runs down the IO cover then down the ram and drops on the GPU It's hard to look away so I turn off the lights.
Almost went 8086k, then I saw the reviews. C'mon intel your better den that..
undervolted 8700k goodness.
got this instead of the F model just for the Wi-Fi. Personally would have preferred the darker F model but I wanted to make sure that I could sell the build someday and Wi-Fi helps. In the bios setting (best case scenario) shave like 10c off my CPU temps... Awesome sauce. Kinda surprised that there is no light on the chipset at this price
to use Aura sync, first download the patriot software and turn off the lights, uninstall that and then install the Aura software specifically for Patriot! not the Aura software found in the support section of your MOBO. Enjoi
I've had a few 250GB evo 960's. I didnt realize that the 250GB models are so much slower in Sequential Write. Thing is fast, nough said
Wish I could Undervolt this. I've been running it in silent mode... Feels good man. If you want to turn off the ugly Orange breathing effect at startup you have to first install Asus Aura (Graphics card) then install Aura Sync
I was torn between the tinted or not. Should've gone tinted, I don't need to see every thing inside, Just the lights when I feel like turning them on. In my experience a cool system is a quiet system and this thing lets the air flow
