    would you rather it be 100 degrees F of 0 degrees F all the time? You may not use any mechanical or electronic method to heat or cool you. 
     
    Either you burn or freeze. 
     
    I would choose for it to be zero because I can always add more layers of clothing. 
     
    The only way to cool off in the heat is to use AC which has already been ruled out here.

    Plugged in my NZXT RGB strips into my Auro RGB header on my new mobo (pins looked identical), it lit up, I assumed it worked, I spent like 45 min redoing cable management plugging into that instead of using my Hue+. Turns out its not actually supported, not detected by software, and only turns on some of the time. Had to redo everything I just changed. Quick way to waste over an hour.

    Looks good beside the finger prints on the glass which I'll clean soon, I'll have to solve to 1070/ti mismatch as well.

    Also we may be CPU bottlenecking pretty hard. Might need to upgrade to a 4790k or even if thats not enough a new gen CPU.

    I bought a new controller from ebay for my ebike hub motor:
     
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/48V-64V-800W-Electric-Bicycle-E-bike-Scooter-Brushless-DC-Motor-Speed-Controller/371688354076?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
     
    Now I know what you are thinking. Why does that matter? 
     
    Well it's because this controller can do something many other BLDC controllers can't and that is regenerative breaking! As in when you apply the brakes on your bike, the hub motor will start dumping power into your battery, that is if you installed the regen brake sensor of course. 
     
    Now I'm not excited about this because of the regenerative breaking. Regenerative breaking only adds about 5% of the energy you used on your trip back into your battery pack which on an ebike is like nothing (on an electric car that's different). I'm actually excited about this because regenerative breaking is a great way to save your bikes breaks. 
     
    You see when I am moving at 30mph and apply the breaks, my bike breaks now need to stop a freewheeling hub motor and this can wear down break pads really quickly. How regenerative breaking works is your motor is instantly converted into a dynamo that recharges your battery for that brief period of time, and this causes the motor to slow down significantly. 
     
    If you don't know what i'm talking about, take a DC or RC hobby motor and dead short all the wires coming out of it then try to turn the motor. Then remove the shorts and try to turn the motor again. You will notice that with the wires coming from the motor shorted, it becomes really hard to turn the motor. However when there are no shorts, the motor spins easily.
     
    In this case the battery pack on my bike is acting as a sort of short in a way, so the motor will slow down. Think of it like a person trying to pedal up a steep hill. That person is going to move a lot slower up a steep hill even if they are contributing the same amount of energy as if they were moving on flat ground.
