  1. In case you think a need for a bit more performance is needed due to the amount of multitasking and your budget is slightly more flexible. This would be my suggestion since the three 4K monitors will require a little more GPU power and you won't have to worry with adapters in order to connect all three to the motherboard. This build reduces RAM from 32 to 16 gb which will still be plenty and adds 2 more cores to the CPU and adds a GPU.

  2. I added a PSU, and Case for something to think about if needed otherwise obviously just omit it. PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/8yXRZf CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3400G 3.7 GHz Quad-Core Processor ($139.99 @ B&H) Motherboard: MSI B450M PRO-M2 MAX Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($74.98 @ Amazon) Memory: G.Skill Aegis 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3000 CL16 Memory ($97.99 @ Newegg) Storage: PNY CS900 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($87.99 @ Best Buy) Case: Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case ($98.98 @ Newegg) Power Supply: Antec NeoECO Gold ZEN 500
  3. All of the cases listed here are fantastic options. I'm a huge fan of the Meshify C. My current favorite though I would have to say is my current case. The newest of the ThermalTTake View series being the View 51. This chassis has plenty of room for as many fans as you want and/or full open loop custom water cooling. It's tempered glass on 3 sides with plenty of air gaps and vent areas. The entire back is one huge open vent with mesh filters. Even in TX heat (already hit 32 C (90 F)+ a few times ambient) this system stays nice and cool at around 40 C with a max of 65 under full load having jus
  4. I concur with Stahlmann and would add if you are looking for a little extra boost, even if marginal, you may think about going with G.Skill Trident Z Neo 128 GB (4 x 32 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/bxNgXL/gskill-trident-z-neo-128-gb-4-x-32-gb-ddr4-3600-memory-f4-3600c18q-128gtzn). The speed is better being that Ryzen in general works best with 3600 MHz memory the compromise is the timings are not as tight which is the case with most sticks over 16 GB. I would also suggest if you want a slightly more robust mobo you can go with the ASUS Crosshair Hero VIII there a
  5. I'm not sure of the connection hub on the ML fans but the LL fan hub does not connect to the RGB header at all you will use the USB 2.0 Header instead. So this will leave your RGB headers free to use with other AURA Sync compatible fans. I'm not sure of the hardware you plan to use but remember also that fans will draw power from the PSU and if you plan to use an AIO, you may want to up the PSU to at least 600w just to be safe. Most systems I build I don't go below 650w just for the sake of head room for smaller builds.
  6. I use all ThermalTake fans, it's the same concept as they actually require their own controller to work. I have a ThermalTake View 71 RGB case as well with 12 fans in total. Three of them are non-RGB and to used for aesthetics and plugged directly into MoBo 4-pin Fan heads. As for the other 9 Fans they are all Standard RGB fans (Thermaltake Riing Plus 12 RGB TT Premium Edition and Thermaltake Riing Plus 14 RGB TT Premium Edition) I have two different controllers that I use for them but again TT requires use of their controllers so I have the standard basic USB-header RGB 5-port controller bein
  7. I would tend to agree with all of these comments regarding other boards personally I'm not a fan of the GODLIKE board in general. It you decide to stay that course though it seems that on the MSI compatibility list Corsair is where you want to look.

  9. I bought mine on eBay but you can also order direct from TT ThermalTake: https://www.ttpremium.com/product/pacific-lumi-plus-led-strip-3-pack/ eBay search link: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=Pacific+Lumi+Plus+LED+Strip&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=lumia&_osacat=0 Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Pacific-Accessories-xx1432-CL-23-o014/dp/B07B4F3BF8/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=Pacific+Lumi+Plus+LED+Strip&qid=1574539329&refinements=p_89%3AThermaltake&rnid=2528832011&sr=8-3 The strips are both magnetic and s
  10. Also just to show you the LED strips alone give off a good amount of light on their own, not sure how much RGB is too much for your liking.
  11. Yes, if you go with the TT controller you must also go with TT devices only. Yes, the strips come with extenders and each strip is about 12-14 inches I'm guessing. https://www.ttpremium.com/product/pacific-lumi-plus-led-strip-3-pack/ You might find someone selling bundles like that but it's not likely unless it's like ebay or something. To answer the configuration question. If you wanted say 3x fans and 6x strips that's 9 pieces so all would fit on a single controller and the controller would use one SATA power to the PSU and then plug directly into the ARGB 3-PIN on the motherboard and
  12. The best solution I have is thermaltake they have a 9 port ARGB controller you can get on Amazon for around $30. The fans can be a bit more expensive but as long as you don't go with the Trio version fans you can put up to 9 fans or a mix of fans and strips on the one controller. Then just add cheap LED strips to the standard RGB 4-pin headers if you wish. It is compatible with the ASUS AURA as well. Or if you want to go with Thermaltake's software instead you can buy the fans and strips only and use the included 9-Pin USB controller that will support up to 5 fans/strips at once, note you can
  13. I'm no computer master tech or anyone special but you may also just for the sake of verification make sure the 9-pin USB connectors are fully connected (personally even though it shouldn't matter I plug the front USB bus into the first port and anything else into port 2). Also make sure you didn't skip a pin or connect the front panel connectors (power and reset buttons) wrong. I'm only bringing it up because although it was on an ASUS board I had a similar situation and after very close review that's what it was for me. My only excuse is I'm almost completely blind but I'm sure it could happe

AMD Ryzen™ 7 3800X Graphics Model: Discrete Graphics Card Required # of CPU Cores: 8 # of Threads: 16 Max Boost Clock: Up to 4.5GHz Base Clock: 3.9GHz Thermal Solution (PIB): Wraith Prism with RGB LED Default TDP / TDP: 105W I lowered the OC though today to 4.3 running way to hot at times and not really needed even 4.3 is decent with 64 gb RAM, bummer is right now i'm GPU bound for another month.
  15. I have ASUS Crosshair Hero VIII, with AMD 3800x I'm running 9 fans total on the TT View 71 ATX (technically eATX) case. I'm going AIO cooler as I've not had any real issues with them "yet". I'm wondering you suggestion on the best one to go with to support the CPU I'm running stock wraith cooler now and although it's cooling it doesn't do the best job of it running at 4.8 ghz and 1.38 v. (roughly). Any suggested help wou;d be greatly appreciated.
