think your PSU is upside down... the fan should be pulling in from the bottom of the case and pushing it out the back so it doesnt intake hot air from inside your case. (or thats how it normally is designed...)

oh I had a new edition to my family. but sadly it was from one of them drunk moments I left the planet so now I got an Alienware 17r5 laptop to nuture and love. :lol:

regarding the PSU, I have watched into several videos about weather it should point upwards or downwards. Many say it is purely an aesthetical matter while others say it matters. I may flip it around just because I trust your wise advice, but these high grade PSUs also dont even use their fan most of the time, as it will only spin above a certain power consumpion I believe.

Thanks anyways I think I’ll follow your advice

Yeah the whole idea of a bottom mount PSU is mainly that heat rises so having the PSU like in the old days at the top would end up gobbling up all the head right off the cpu. so then the whole bottom mount case line came out with a external intake so it doesnt 1) absorb heat already trying to be removed 2) doesnt effect your internal airflow either... Remember you should have more intake CFM over exhaust. this way you keep a positive air flow and pressure inside your case. your cpu cooler is a 3 fan radiator pulling out and you have only 2 intakes. so we talking 2 in and 5 out in total... in your case I would def put it so it draws in from outside if it supports it (I cant find any bottom photos of your case to check)

oh and looking great so far. gonna be a nice rig.

Really appreciate all of this :)

And yes, my case does have some vents at the bottom of the case for the PSU I believe, so probabbly its a better way to put it that way thanks

I agree with sycholic the fan should point out. No reason to add additional heat into the case.

Image Much better now! Thanks Sycholic and Vile.

As a sidenote, I was testing if my motherboard was working propperly when I plugged it in and the lights did show up. But I do not get a Q Code readout, nor case fans nor case lights and buttons working from the FPC. Even though the reason of this might be the lack of CPU installed for now, I just wanted to make sure my motherboard isnt faulty if any of you have a clue (I have a MAXIMUS ROG HERO X)

Some older Asus boards would show 00 when no CPU is installed, but that code seems to be unused now judging by your manual. I'd test with the CPU in after your cooler comes in.
As for case fans, I would just try to plug into a different socket.
For case lighting, assuming they're Aura Sync compatible and you've plugged it into the correct port, I'm thinking they might require the CPU and/or OS to setup first.

In any case, since the board itself lights up, at least that confirms that the power supply is working and the motherboard is receiving power. I'd wait for the rest of the parts before worrying about any components possibly needing an RMA.
Do you feel what I feel?
