Hi,

I was planning to build a new pc using the MSI MPG SEKIRA 500X that was announced at computex this year. I also wanted to use the Corsair Hydro H115i RGB Platinum for my cpu cooling but I realized this cooler isn't compatible with MSI's Mystic Light. Also, this case doesn't have room for the additional fans that I get with the cooler. So instead I was thinking to buy the CORSAIR Hydro Series H150i PRO or CORSAIR Hydro Series H115i PRO instead and use the 200mm ARGB fans that I get with the case with the cooler. Would this work? And if it does, how would I need to connect everything? I'm afraid the fans I get with the case are somehow not compatible with the cooler. Or that I'm able to configure the RGB because the fans don't work with iCUE. I don't mind using both Mystic Light and iCUE. I know the case hasn't been release that but if anyone would have some ideas, I would appreciate it.

Indeed they aren't compatible simple because the surface area of the fan and the radiator don't match up. You're likely going to be able to jerry-rig the cooler on the case fans but the performance of your cooler will be crippled.
