    This is my top-mounted fan setup, for reference. I have another red LED fan at the bottom front of the case, so that all 3 are visible from the exterior, glowing red with a "Republic of Gamers heart".

    Hey, Black4 - why do you have your memories in the black slots?! If I remember correctly, in all ROG mobos you first populate the red ones...

    Thanks for mentioning it. You are correct, and it came that way from the supplier because we asked them to confirm that memory and CPU were working properly & install the latest firmware drivers at the time it was picked up. I never questioned it after that.

    Now, is it as simple as moving the memory to the red memory module slots?

    Yes, it's that simple... but, if it's working fine right now and satisfies your needs, just leave it there... - just keep it in mind... if some problem raises, then start with moving the memories in the correct slots...

    Thank you Zka17, this is what I was looking for. And probably only need one for the top group of fans.

    Have you heard of the Bitfenix Alchemy cables? I'd recommend you look them up. They have a huge collection of sleeved cables for everything and even come in different colors too.

    Pretty isn't it?
