    Pffft... hardly, I'd say White is the colour of the Chav nation flag... ofcourse with the Burberry pattern. :roll:

    It's natural. Colours just make computers look bad, imo.

    UV is interesting.

    No colour is nice though.

    My personal favourite is between white and orange, white because as you said it's natural, but orange because it gives it a nice glow :D

    UV for me, I used to check money with them and have a laugh looking at driving licences and passports etc.
    Interesting to see green is in the lead at the time of this post...

    White. I prefer none and usually have them off, but they are nice when friends come over and want to see the internals. I just switch them on, give a glance, then shut them back off.

    + 1 That's the only real time I like to use them, even more so as I'm pretty much the only geek out of my friends so something as simple as some lighting makes all the difference to them :laugh:

    I like blue. I have two cathode glow and the color blue illuminated fans in my case Lancool K62 Black Lord. My speed controller Zalman ZM-FC1Plus also has blue LEDs near the knobs.

    I'm currently using blue CCFL's and LED's sparsely in my computers. But, if I ever build another rig for myself, it's going to have a red theme :rockout:

    White or UV. At the time I made my current rig, I liked red. My new rig will have minimal lighting, and it will be white or UV if any.
