Aurora White

I've never actually done anything with RGB or open loop cooling...so there might be a fitting or fan connector missing somewhere 😇

Btw, for all the watercooling and RGB stuff, being restricted to only Amazon and Newegg is a royal pain!
Also, the CPU waterblock should be the white edition....but neither Amazon or Newegg has it atm.
(Products from Newegg didn't automatically add to pcparts so they were added manually)

RGB components:
  • Mainboard Aurasync
  • 4 x Thermaltake Riing 120mm RGB fan
  • Lian Li Strimer plus 24-pins Power extension cable
  • Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro
  • Corsair D5 RGB Pump/reservoir
  • Phanteks Glacier C350i CPU Water Block
  • Corsair XG7 RGB GPU block
+ Blue led Silverstone RL07

White case, white memory, white tube connectors, Light blue cooling liquid

Notes:
- If the strimer plus is not allowed (pre-order) then can be replaced with:
Custom: Lian Li Strimer RGB PSU Cable ($45.65 @ Amazon)
Although that would be quite silly irl
- The CPU block should be the Corsair XC7 White...@corsair shop but ok rules
