But when it comes to the rgb I am very confused. Should I just get splitters or get an RGB control?

 

If anyone would like to give some tips on what I should do or should I just stick with the case fans and get a simply exhaust fan to make things easier. Either way, I would still like some help on the rgb.

Honestly for a $600 or around $1000(if you include the already bought components and even if it's $1500, performance should be the priority. But since it's a pc and it's really your choice, form and aesthetics can be your priority. But just putting it out there. For this build, you really don't need the full $120 win11 bought from microsoft as there are other legit market where you can get an authentic windows 11 key for $13-20. I would also advice you to get a z690 or z790 motherboards as, overclocking with undervolting the cpu is one of the best part of 13600k.


If you really want RGB, I would suggest to just get a case that comes with a fan and rgb hub already.

Here's the link to what I have so far. My brother got me a intel Core i5-13600k for the holidays, and so I thought I'd get a better case and some more fans but i think having 7 RGB fans is a bit much for a first build. I plan on getting these fan splitters...

You'd be better with a fan+RGB hub rather than a half dozen splitters 😛
