Hello,
 
Welcome to my Cosmos C700M build. First of all, I would like to thank Cool GTX for inviting me in the Mod Rigs section  Below is the list of components for this build:
 
Cooler Master C700M
Evga Z390 Dark
Evga SuperNova T2 1600W
Evga black sleeved cable kit
Intel Core i9 9900k
Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 32GB 3200MHZ
NZXT Kraken X72 Cooler - 3x Corsair LL120 fans instead of stock cooler fans
4x Corsair LL140 fans - 1x back, 3x top or front depending on Cooler placement
Corsair Commander Pro
WD  Black SN750 NMVe SSD
 
The above are already purchased. Still didn't decided on GPU. Well I know what I want but due to availability on Newegg (international website) I might change my mind or wait:
 
MSI 2080 Ti Gaming Trio-X / Evga 2080 Ti XC2 Ultra / Evga 2080 Ti XC Gaming / Evga 2080 Ti FTW3
 
I will use my existing 1080 Ti FTW3 SLI until I decide on the 2080 Ti version I want.
 
More photos will follow. Stay tuned

    Hello Guys. Just a quick update on the build. I did some messing around with the hardware.. Took a lot of time to figure out how thing work . the Manual for the case is most probably the worst I have ever seen. So there was a lot of trial and error.
     
    I Installed PSU, Motherboard, CPU, Memory , Cooler, and fans. I will need to figure out how to connect the fans to Corsair Commander Pro. lots of cables for the damn RGB 
     
    But below are some of the photo I took while working on it yesterday.
     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     
    it's not going to be easy making it look tidy ...
     

     
    6 Fans , and lots of other cables going to and coming out from Commander Pro, RGB Hub, etc. all this and I still didn't connect the power supply cables

    Yes
     
    The Supplemental PCIe power is in the lower left corner



    Manual Z390 Dark page 18
    (excerpt)
    Supplemental PCIe 6-pin Power Connector There is a 6-pin PCIe connector at the bottom of the motherboard (See Page 40 for more specifics to the connector itself, and associated wiring/pinouts). This connector provides dedicated power to the PCIe x16 slots, augmenting the +12V power provided by the 24-pin and the GPU directly. This is optional for a single card solution, but is recommended for SLI, CFX, and dual-processor video cards.

    I completed part 1 of this build. Part 2 is dual 2080 Ti FTW3 . part 3 is do more cable management. but this I will do later.
     

     
    Problems I faced so far:
     
    1. Paint comes off easily on the PSU shroud and the Cable management shroud. I don't like this at all but I can live with it.
    2. the cut out for cable management is very close to the motherboard so I am not really taking advantage of the inverted motherboard connector. for CPU i managed it somehow but for the motherboard I had to do it like you seeing in the photo.
    3. the 1080 ti's from my previous build had 2 slot spacing between them. I can't use the HB bridge. so I had to use the SLi bridge that came with the motherboard.
    4. As you see the NZXT is not lighting up on the pump. it is because the usb cable is a straight cable and the memory stick is very tall I can't put the cable . So I need to look for an angled cable or something. I saw a build using an angled connector . not sure where did he get it from.
     
     
    Not sure where to get 1 slot spacing HB SLi bridge ... and that angled usb to usb header cable ... any ideas ?

    Z390 Dark will work with 2 slot spacing HB SLI bridge.

    How ? It will not work with Z390 Dark. I have it from my old X99 rig.
     
    Check the Image. I have this 100-2W-0027-LR
     
    I need 1 slot spacing bridge 100-2W-0026-LR
     
    No where to be seen.

    Ok, I see. Different manufacturers use different terminology to describe different length SLI bridges. What EVGA calls 1 slot spacing, ASUS and many others call 2 slot spacing.
    Either way ASUS's 2 slot spacing SLI bridges will work with any motherboard as long as there are 2 slots between PCI-e 16x slots you have videocards installed in you're trying to SLI.
     
    Any of these will work:

    Are you looking for bridges that work with the 20 series Cards ? (post 1, mentions 2080 Ti)
     
    They are Not the Same as used with the 10 series GPU & the Spaces are counted in a different way
     
     
    EVGA NVLink SLI Bridge
     
    1 slot Between cards = 3 slot  EVGA GeForce RTX NVLink SLI Bridge, 3-Slot Spacing, RGB LED, 100-2W-0029-LR

    Hello Cool GTX. I am looking for GTX HB SLi bridges not NV-Link SLi bridges. I already ordered that Gigabyte bridge. I hate that SLi bridge from the motherboard. and I am noticing some stuttering as well.
     
    Most of the consumers buying Z390 platforms probably will have at least 10 series cards. which takes advantage the HB bridge. a standard HB bridge should be included in the box. at least for high end motherboards. My humble opinion

    Looks nice with all the RGB lighting on the case. I know a lot of people don't like the rainbow effect but I think of just being in control of the colors I want to display and can see that being very awesome.

    Thanks Hoggle. I need to do some work on the cabling of the fans. each fan has 2 cables one goes to commander pro and one goes to RGB hub. so many cables to make RGB working. and i have 7 fans. and RGB hub only six. so i need a splitter or get another RGB. hub. I have cooler in a pull setup from the inside of the case. Thinking of getting fans to push. but i think this will be too many fans.
     
    The main things I want to do now is to somehow find a cable that can fit the cooler with the current memory to light it up, install the evga power link when I get it, and get 2x 2080 Ti FTWs. but this can wait a little bit.
     
    I want a cable like what is used in the photo. because the normal cable won't fit with the memory I have. If anyone knows from where to get one, i'll appreciate it.

    Nice. How many RGB hubs do you have in there ? And from where did you get them ? I am looking for only getting the hub but it seems I need to buy a 3 LL fan pack to get it ?

    In the 1000D you get a Commander Pro by default in the case. You can also order any additional parts from the Corsair website.

    This is best compatibility between motherboard and PC case if you look cable management.
    I never saw that before. Excellent components.

    Speaking of Commander Pro, Do you see "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed) in Device Manager ?!


    No I do not see this. I have the 1000D Corsair Commander Pro, a 2nd Corsair Commander Pro, and two Corsair Lighting Node pros

    Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    This is best compatibility between motherboard and PC case if you look cable management.
    I never saw that before. Excellent components. 



    This is a nice case. I like it very much. But there are lots of room for improvement. First , the paint  it peels off easily. Second , the cable management cutouts are very close to this mother board. ATX would have been perfect . but and E-ATX , not so much.

    Must have been a cabling night mare for you ... I need to check why the Commander Pro is showing this weird error. I reinserted the cable and it went away , but came back again. But the ICUE software is working perfectly fine.
     
     
    I managed to fix the cable I am looking for form an old Corsair H100i from back in the day. I just remembered this cable by luck  It didn't work when I connected it to the USB header on commander pro  Would have been nice but it's ok. I used the second USB 2.0 header on the motherboard.

    Hello Guys. Another small cosmetic upgrade, Evga Power Link , Managed to route the 24-pin  cable properly , and got that HB SLI bridge. Still would have been happier to get the Evga bridge. Anyway , this will go out soon and replaced with 2080 Ti's.
