First gen Ryzen cube (retired)

1700x on a b350m-a, built in April of '17.

HD120 fans all exhausting, 2 above the motherboard, 2 through the H110i v2 mounted on the front. 2 SP120 fans on front of rad in pull.
All intake air is from the GPU side, providing the EVGA RTX 2070 XC with plenty of fresh air.
Ghetto-engineered black vinyl air scoop on the back side directs passive intake across the SSD and motherboard components for additional directed cooling.
Drive/PSU bay has a 120mm Corsair SP fan exhausting to keep the negative pressure in both chambers.

RGB setup using SIV - all fans and LED strips are used for temperature monitoring.
During idle, all are blue. As the coolant temp rises, the fans fade to yellow at 32c, and reach red at 35c.
The LED strips do the same progression, only they are triggered by the mobo temps, at the same temperatures.
The cpu block LED gives real time core temp, blue under 30c, green > yellow > orange > red @ 55c.
This setup makes it easy to spot issues from the corner of the eye while gaming.

Yes, i know negative pressure gets dusty. I also know how to dust out a PC on a regular basis, and the cooling benefits outweigh the inconvenience.
