    The final product really turned out quite nice.  For this we have four RGB LED strips tied into a Sound BlasterX AE-5 AmpDAC.  A single UV LED light strip behind the Thermaltake Pacific PR22-D5 and of course the Thermaltake 140mm RGB Riing fans.  The nice thing about having three different light sources is that you can control them independently depending on your mood.

    Overall I really liked how this build turned out.  If I had to do it over I would have use some PWM fans on the radiator.  The Riing control software is great but doesn’t really give me confidence when it comes to controlling fan RPM.  For lighting the Riing fans are great and they synchronize well when configured correctly.
