Product Showcase - The finished build
On this page, you’ll find a selection of photos of the finished build inside the Corsair iCUE 465X RGB. The GPU that we used here has an AIO LCS, and the CPU is cooled (for measurements) either with air (Thermalright True Spirit 120 Direct) or with a liquid cooler placed on the front. For the purpose of this section, the Asus Ryujin 360 was used (radiator placed on the front). We've used the provided Corsair LL120 RGB fans on it. The motherboard is an ATX form factor one (and looks relatively small in this Corsair chassis), based on the Z390 chipset, with a de-lidded i7 8700K @ 4.8 GHz inside. The GPU comes from Aorus, and it’s the Waterforce version (GeForce GTX 1080 Ti). The final result looks very nice. There were no major issues with installing the components inside.

The PSU is not mounted using a removable bracket, unlike in quite many other cases today, so it has to be fixed to the back wall of the chassis. That’s not a big issue though but considering the price, it should be applicable. If you’re installing a modular PSU, attach your cables first, as once the PSU is installed, access to your modular cable ports is limited. Overall, fitting all the cables of the test setup in the case wasn’t too difficult. You won’t see a ton of cables here. The PSU shroud really does its job well. Now, two shots with the LEDs on.
