AORUS RGB Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Started building my first ever gaming PC tonight, I got as far as installing the CPU and cooler to the motherboard, put the RAM in the motherboard then screwed it into the pre-installed standoffs in the case.

 

I then got the six case fans in and the power supply, ran the cables through.

 

Stopped now because I need the M.2 NVMe drive to turn up now as well as needing to buy a USB hub and then install the graphics card before unplugging all the cables again and trying my best at cable management.

 

Here she is in her unfinished state, I’ll keep the log updated as I go along and then again in future when I do the hardline watercooling.

Your front fans are now blowing air out towards the front. Is this your plan?

Somewhere on the outside should be sone arrows, one pointing the way the fan blows and one showing which way the fan turns. Im not sure if your fans have this as well

My dude, you have your front fans around the wrong way so they are drawing the case air out. I would also suggest flipping around your back fan or as it is more commonly known exhaust fan because right now it aint exhausting its drawing in air


idk tbh

Really? You have to tell him the exact same thing I told him 10 min ago? It not really useful to fill this tread up like this, is it?

The side with the specs is the side the fan pushes air towards, that's how I remember it.

quoting in all those pictures wont help either...


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

For most fans this is the case indeed, the cross is most often the back of the fan.

 

Some people 🤦🏼‍♂️

good luck getting that to sync... the aorus graphics engine software is horribly broken, always has been from what I've seen.... I wish i could make my Gigabyte card stop the rainbow cycle in my otherwise black, blue, red and purple setup. (i rly like black with strong dark colors accenting it)
