I am very nervous on building my first PC. Thanks for the info. I am looking at Asus's "GJ" videos now while waiting for the Formula to be posted at Newegg and then - my wallet will proceed to fall apart. The biggest thing I see in perusing this Forum is the ominous How to Uninstall AI Suite. This makes me even more nervous as if I will get frustrated and then Uninstall it.

Abula - that Akasa wiring harness looks intriguing.

The comments from the reviewers sound good. I couldn't tell whether or not if the reviewers Chassis fans were 3 or 4 pins. Can you tell whether or not that if I plug my top 3 fans (all PWM) and along with the CPU fan (PWM) into the CPU fan header that all would be controlled "in unison"? What I mean is that I would want my 3 top fans to speed up or slow down as required by the CPU fan header.

You can use 2 Akasa splitters if you like, as you have two 4pin headers (CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT) this will allow you to control 10 pwm fans, all will be mirrors, meaning that if the cpu_fan is telling the fans to go to 1000rpm, all will go to 1000rpm, this is not so you can control them individually but you will control one that will mirror all others that are connected to the akasa splitter.
Keep in mind what I have may work as each of my Noctua fans come with a Y splitter so that I can keep adding fans. They also come with an LNA to make them 1200 instead of 1500 RPM.
