That is perfect. Thank you so much for responding :)
Sorry I'm sorta new to this so I don't really understand a lot of the terminology yet haha. So did I understand you correctly? The NZXT hub doesn't consolidate the fans plugged into it into one single USB connector that goes to the MoBo. That means I'll need to buy a splitter that connects to the MoBo through one of the fan headers and plug the case fans into the hub and the hub into the splitter?
Yeah, a close up would be nice! I'm just interested in if the hub consolidates all the fans you plug into it into one fan connector to plug into my MoBo. If it doesn't I'll have to buy a splitter.
Awesomeeeeeee. That is music to my ears. So to make sure I'm not missing anything (I'm really paranoid if you haven't noticed already), I plug in my AMD Wraith cooler into the MoBo, and the 1 hub USB that holds both of my case fans.
And for the LED strips, you can connect the strips to the existing built in strip without any extra cables, with the built in one connected to the hub which is connected to the MoBo through the cord previously mentioned in regards to the case fans. Am I correct?
Nice build! I just have a few questions about the MoBo. This is my first build so I'm tyring to make sure I don't screw anything up. I couldn't find the M.2 slot on any picture. Is it behind the board? Also If I buy LED strips (Deepcool 350 specifically) can I just plug it into the MoBo and they'll work? Or are they connected to the PSU?
Nice build! I was thinking about getting the same case (the white version) and I wanted to know how the little NZXT hub thing worked. Does it consolidate all your case fan cables into one usb connector? I pretty confused by how it works lol.
Nice build! I have some questions about how the little NZXT hub thing in the back of the case works. Does it consolidate all the case fans into one USB connector? The MoBo I'm planning to buy only has 2 fan connectors, one for the CPU cooler and one for any case fans. I'm just trying to figure out if I need a splitter lol.
And what about your LED extension kit? Did it just plug right into the built in LED strip? Thanks :)
Okay thanks! I just wanted to know what I expect if I ordered that cooler. Good job on the build.
Nice build! I have a question though. Did you need to order a separate backplate for your H7 to support AM4? Because the page for the H7 says it supports it but some reviewers said they had to order a backplate to support their Ryzen build.
Lmao okay, still sorta confused but I'll trust you. Gotta give it to you for dealing with me and helping me out. You're a lifesaver.
Wait, but aren't all the fan headers occupied by the kraken?
Soo, I won't enough headers for both my case fans and kraken?
Lmao I'm really confused and I'm missing something key here. My understanding so far is I have 3 fan headers, but my kraken uses all 3 of them? 1 is used for the cooler block and the other 2 are used by my radiator fans. What am I missing?
Okay, but doesn't that mean I'm 2 fan headers down because don't I still need to plug in my case fans?
Wait, so the fans on the radiator both need fan headers? Is that what the cable coming off of the main part (the circular part with NZXT on it) is? Or is that just for LEDs and the cables for the fans come off the fans directly? And if the AIO needs 2 headers and I have 2 case fans, don't I need to buy an attachment that gives me more headers? And does a CPU fan connector work like a normal fan connector?
Okay, this is awkward. Buuuuuuut, I just sorta panicked about fans and LEDs XD. I'll try to make this as quick as possible. As you probably noticed, I'm using a pretty low-end motherboard with minimal features. I know there are only 2 fan plugs, so I only have 2 fans, that's great. But how many led plugs will this mobo have? I'm not sure how many my LED strips need, but I'm going to go with 1. So that's 1 for the LED strips, 1 for the kraken, and 2 for my corsair case fans. My MoBo can't possibly have enough plugs for all of that. Even though it's telling me it's all compatible, I'm doubting PCPartPicker a little right now because although there are only 2 fan plugs, I added more fans and it didn't say any compatibility issue. Sorry I'm piling a lot on you but idk who else I can ask.
I can't thank you enough for the help you've given me. My build has really improved thanks to you. Just saying, I might hit you up again if I have questions ;)
Oh okay. That's super reassuring ;P. Oh, and one last (hopefully) question. What are the little brackets that hold the cables to make them look really tidy? Do they usually come with PSU/Cables? If not, where can I order them?
Awesome. I know you said I have all the cables I need, but I'm just sorta paranoid so I'm just gonna ask. In this build https://pcpartpicker.com/b/JdXPxr you can see on the gpu (same one I'm using just 1070 and I'm using 1060) there is an 8 pin plug, which I think I have, but next to it there's a 6 pin plug that I don't have. Am I missing it or do I have it already but I've just not noticed?
Huh, that is weird. Dude you've been a huge help but I got just a few more questions (lmao I'm really new to this). Could you take a look at my build that I based off the that dude's build and tell me if I have all the cables I need in white? I tried looking online to see what they do but there weren't any newbie terms so I didn't know what any website was saying. I know I have the 24 pin cable, and I threw in 2 other cables. I'm hoping one is the gpu cable and the other is for the itty bitty plugs on the top left(??) of the mobo. Am I right or do I need to order different cables. My build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/nQnsd6
Oh, so those cables just plug into the cables already in the PSU?
Yeah, but he's using a semi modular PSU. Doesn't that mean the 24 pin cable is already attached? How did he make it so it was white?
Okay, I'll probably just get a pack of LEDs from Amazon then. I also have a question about the coloring of my case. The build look I'm basing my build off of (I'm basically making a budget version of it) has a white interior case. Do you know how white LEDs look with a black interior? Do you have any recommendations for a good white mATX case or will it look just fine with white LEDs and black interior? Also, how is his 24 pin plug (Idk what it's called, it's the big one on the right of the MoBo) white? They're using a semi-modular with black cables. Isn't the 24 pin cable permanently attached to the PSU?
