Will the PC industry obsession with giving us everything dripping in imo ghastly RGB crap ever end, or is it destined to get worse?

Personally I am not a fan(no pun intended) Though i am waiting for hideous RGB cables to appear.

Looking at the stuff from CES, it should be renamed Computers dripping in RGB LED's entertainment show.

Yes, it will end. When holograms come next.

Cables are out, get some :).

Get over it, man likes to put light's on stuff , it makes cars go faster and maintains your pc overclock too.

Plus who looses , man hurt's own eyeballs, and possibly man's wife, maybe that's the point;):)

I have dim low key white colour LED's on my case fans and HSF, that's it. gives a nice glimpse through the side panel but none of this colour changing, flashing, tracing RGB crap that's literally on everything. I did buy some cold cathodes about a year again as I got nostalgic about the 00's gaming PC's but they are still crap and not the colours they should be and one died within a week, same as they used to be back in the day lol :laugh:

rgb itself is very nice,it's people's poor taste that ruins it.you've got ppl stuffing rgb stuff into every corner of their computer to run rainbow effect.like no one mentioned to them to actually adjust it.

I got a Borderlands-ish blue/yellow theme going on here now :)

The nice thing about RGB is exactly that. Customizable. Its there when and how you want it. Do I need it on everything? Nah... Its not new either, is it... I mean we used cold cathode for ages, and when I was 10 I had shoes with flashy lights. Hm...Maybe that last bit is telling. Maybe we're still kids, deep down :D

I got this on my gpu

with a nice effect where the colors "stack" on top of each other back and forth.

plus this on my psu

together they look insane at night.

but if I was gonna pack more rgb into my pc,I wouldn't just cram more rainbow effects.that'd spoil it completely. one rgb rainbow effect is enough,it's supposed to be the standout point.
just like if I went with a led aio I wouldn't cram three led fans around it.one ring-type led as exhaust,no led blades for god's sake.top ones need to be non-led.
but I'd much rather leave the cooler space non-lit and sync a ring type led rear exhaust fan with ram sticks.solid color only,no shift.


only way to cram all rgb stuff inside and still keep it consistent is to do a two tone

Yeah that GPU looks great :)

Here's my flashies - the blue/yellow inside the rig moves to the upper front corner all the time - slowly. I would kill for your GPU shroud... mine can only do red :p

Also... I was SO close to buying this AIO. Still drooling all over it tbf

One thing I do avoid is having to look straight at a LED. Needs to be out of direct line of sight or have something over it like on your GPU. I can only see the light cast onto other parts from my leds strips.

rgb is just an addition to those beautiful,big,heavy hunks of metal on the cpu and gpu.there's nothing I like more than a bulky heatsink.

Anyone that complains about RGB clearly doesn't remember the hassle that it once was to change the colour theme of your rig or the expense involved with replacing single-coloured fans.


I see RGB as a positive thing for the most part - I personally dont like the pulsing or strobing you can set the RGB's to - however, this isn't a problem for the most part as nearly all RGB items come with the ability to set a solid colour, mitigating this issue entirely. :toast:

I think it's more to do with the fact they have plastered it all over EVERYTHING, cases, fans, HSF, motherboards, GPU's, RAM, heck even SSD's and thats all inside the case, then you have it on your mice keyboards, mice mats! chairs, desks. Some people are just sick of seeing RGB this, RGB that, pretty much anywhere they can shove it

Benchmark Scores I had some of these once upon a time? Old age has seen me misplace them....
And for every product that has RGB, there are 2-5+ (or more) that dont.... and on top of this, you have no actual need to buy anything with RGB if you dont like it. :roll:


It is a personal choice... and one that can be made without whining on public boards about your distaste for a current fad or similar. It was (almost) the same argument with red vs blue themes ten years ago... the argument never fades, but, the subject gets old and no amount of complaining will change anything or make manufacturers drop RGB from their designs.


RGB is here to stay and product flexibility - the colour you choose in this instance - is always a good thing.

I think it's more to do with the fact they have plastered it all over EVERYTHING, cases, fans, HSF, motherboards, GPU's, RAM, heck even SSD's and thats all inside the case, then you have it on your mice keyboards, mice mats! chairs, desks. Some people are just sick of seeing RGB this, RGB that, pretty much anywhere they can shove it
Exactly.

I understand the need for lit up keyboards, I like to play with the lights off, for better dark scene visibility, and you need the keyboard lit up to see what your doing. But ffs why in the 7th lvl of hell would anyone want RGB everything, it just does not look classy at all.

Personally I think it's a fad that will fade away, as the idiot manufacturers flood the market with this RGB everything, and make people sick of it.

That's actually incorrect a lot of companies are releasing products, AIO's fans cases etc with RGB whereby they don't release a corresponding one without RGB it's called jumping on the bandwagon, and yes you can turn it off but I'd rather just avoid them altogether so it's turning potential customers away imo
