Build Advice Build Compatibility

Hi all.

Just finalising a build and wanted someone to double check everything is compatible if you can please.

Mainly do the sleeved cables work with my parts, do I need any more splitters for the RGB fans, etc etc.

Thanks!
I don't think you need any splitters with an expensive motherboard. From the specs it has:
  • 1 x CPU fan header
  • 1 x water cooling CPU fan header
  • 3 x system fan headers
  • 2 x system fan/water cooling pump headers
Should be fine for 4 fans unless I'm missing something?

I would change that 970 evo out for a faster, and slightly cheaper, Sabarent rocket 4.0. DDR 4000 is a waste of money. That PSU is overkill too. For a similar price, you could actually step up to a 3950x. What is the purpose of this machine?
