Hi folks,

So I've already received my Aventum and for the most part I love it. However when I specced out, I stuck with the stock fans and DS controller. I've sort of regretted not going with an RGB fan setup.

I would definitely go with Corsair. IDK about Thermaltake, but I know Corsair's iCue software will allow color and speed control of the LL Series RGBs. They are pretty pricy, so you may wish to be selective about which fans you change out.

You either have the options of going with Corsair or Thermaltake depending on your choice. They both allow for LED and speed control.

I like the Corsair ML Pros especially for custom liquid cooling setups since they're high airflow and static pressure, best of both worlds.

How are the corsair fans in terms of noise? My previous rig was using the stock corsair fans on an H115i cooler. When the machine got warm, they did get pretty noisy. I eventually swapped out for Noctua fans. I do get though with this rig I probably will need to make a trade off given the amount of fans...but just curious.

The LL and ML series are both really quiet sets, but you're right, there is some opportunity cost considering how many fans actually go into the Aventum X.
