You're right on the DIMM slots. Looking at the picture before it looked like they were in the 1st and 3rd slots, so my bad on that one. I should have enlarged the image.
Had that too, did indeed have to enlarge the picture to see it clearly.

admittedly case can take 3 x 120mm in front so that would work too. 3 intake, 2 exhaust
Was thinking of this with those 5 fans. Wonder if the fan that is in the case right now can be freed up if he gives it a good clean, also should check if it is connected. Whole thing for that matter should be cleaned thouroughly.

The little diagram to bottom left of memory slots also shows its in the right channel. I never noticed that before, I can see my motherboard clearer in his photos than I can here. His gpu must be thinner than my 2070 Super as I can't see as much of the fan cover under the GPU (covers south bridge), he can see part of the logo. I can't see any of that.
He appears to have a Gigabyte Aorus X570 Elite, its almost same board as I have. It doesn't make any difference, I just noticed it was missing writing mine had. So I dug further.
