    Where to start?

    I don't know if you got one of my replies which was really long. I think it's still waiting for moderator approval.

    Where to start?

    Also for building a computer, I'd recommend these videos: Before: JayzTwoCents' video on common PC building mistakes and also his video of common PC myths JayzTwoCents' video on cable management JayzTwoCents' video on AIO orientation (easier to understand and not as boring as GamersNexus'...

    Where to start?

    Also if you'd be fine with a dual system, here are some options: Gigabyte VISION G or VISION D as the main ATX system ASRock Z490 Phantom Gaming ITX/TB3 as the secondary system Phanteks Enthoo Pro 2 or Phanteks Enthoo 719 as the case Phanteks Revolt X 1200W as the PSU and other stuff from my...

    That'd work. Just keep in mind that you'd be getting GTX 1060 performance vs GTX 1070 performance.

    Custom SSD Icons

    Can someone make me a BarraCuda 4TB (newer look, like with green and stuff in it), 970 EVO Plus 1TB and an SN750 500GB one? I tried making some by myself and it didn't work.

    Also make sure that all your fans are the same (either LL120s or LL140s) if you plan to plug them into the same hub into the lighting node pro. if you got something different, (ie QL120 or ML140), then you will have to plug them into a different hub (then into the LN Pro).

    Sounds good. I'd recommend unplugging the LN Pro's USB when you go to macOS, just to make sure that you won't have any sleep problems.

    For the pump and stuff, I'd recommend plugging the pump header (it is the exact same as a fan header, just that it has 1 cable), into the CPU_OPT header. For the fans that came with the pump, do one of these: 1: Plug them into the cables coming out of the pump (both fan and RGB). Make sure you...

    It works just fine for me. What I'd recommend is plug in the USB for it and boot into Windows, install iCUE, set the lighting preference (I forget how, but there's a way that you can set the lighting you want, then that is the default for it). Then when you are done setting the lighting you...

    For the GPU, if you want RDNA2, then you should wait for Big Sur 11.1. A 5700 XT would work fine, or you might be able to use the HD7950 (if it uses standard power connectors and a standard PCIe slot).
