Quick update
I have been having a few issues with the phanteks fan hub , not registering rpm , running fans a different speeds , basically doing its own thing , looked at a couple of forums and i seem to not be the only one , so until phanteks can replace it i have ordered 2 x aquacomputer splitty 9 , so i position them in the correct places .
Also while i was on the order i also got 2 xspc rgb splitters as using cable splitters doesn't seem idea , will update with pic's later

I tend to avoid everything NZXT, Phanteks, Asus and etc. Aquacomputer are simply better at everything they do.

The XSPC RGB splitters are very good. I am running two of those

What it inevitably always comes back to dude is the software. You can design the most elaborate hardware in the universe but if the software sucks.....

And that is where Aquacomputer have it completely nailed. Aquasuite is simply the best software out there. Everything works exactly as it should, they constantly update the firmware and etc to make everything work properly.

That is where Asus seem to falter. I mean, their latest software is detected as spyware and actually prevents some games from running as the game thinks you are running cheat code. I found that out when my buddy could not get Far Cry 5 to run. Took us hours of messing around.

After some very hinky fan behaviour i finally gave up with splitty 9's and got a couple of ek 3 way splitters and a couple of extension cables , seems to have worked .

So finally it is finished



cable management done to the best of my abilities





Bios updated and drivers to the latest all seems good






Hope you all enjoyed my efforts .
Thanks again to Tom for the chance of entering a competition which without of this chance may have not ever happened
