  1. I just bought some used Corsair rgb fans, and am unsure about how to install the controller. I understand the hub and motherboard connections, but can’t figure out where the sp lighting controller plugs go. Also, would I get more control over the colour if I use my dg-77 case’s rgb hub?

    Victory !! Thx for the assist

    If it can't do 5.1, adjust the base clock to 101, and see if your system is stable. That's what I did.

    i8700K vs i9700K vs i9900K

    I would keep the 8700k. The 9700k doesn't have hyper-threading, and the 9900k doesn't have much value for those on a budget.
  4. You have a very specific taste in monitors.

    SSD brand preference

    i don't rally have a preferred brand, but both Seagate and Adata have failed me on my first build. I am currently leaning towards hp, though, as I am running one of their m.2 drives right now.

    Best air cooler for i9 9900k

    If you are willing to do basic modding, get a server cooler or heatsink and add fans.
  11. Code 00 almost always is something wrong with the motherboard or cpu. In your case, It's almost certainly the motherboard, as it was damaged in shipping. You should return it for warranty.

    I think you forgot a graphics card.

    2070 won’t talk to my monitor

    It sounds like a dead port on either you monitor or graphics card. If there are other HDMI ports on your card, try those. If they don't work, it's probably your monitor. If you have another, try it. Also, try other cables if you have any. If none of this solves the issue, then something is broken in your PC.

    What is the best 2080 to buy?
