it will, but not in short time. many brands still pushing RGB out from the envelope to anything and i guess after everything got RGB the hype will drop

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.
Looking at it from the manufacturer's PoV, they wanna build what sells ....

a) Will getting a pair of Air-Jordans get you off JV and onto the Varsity squad ? ... nope, but buyers think it will impress their friends .... ka-ching !
b) Will getting the latest phone w/ a giant screen reduce call drops or make you more productive ? ... nope, but think of all the attention you'll get running around the office showing your colleagues your collection of funny cat videos. .... ka-ching !
c) Will loading your PC up with RGB flashing breathing, multicolored lights which provide a light show akin the cacophony of sound at elementary school's 1st band practice bring turn your friends heads when they see it ? .... ka-ching !

Nothing screams ... "my primary motivation in this build is impressing my friends" more than garish RGB. In building and landscape design, lighting is used to enhance the subject it is illuminating ...., not to distract from it with cheap light effects. Is the goal to bring attention to the componentry and build skill ... or to distract from it ?

I only have 1 friend into PC's and he lives in Pittsburgh, PA...I live near Cleveland, Ohio.

I wish the bling bling I got was only $2 more... At the time I paid an extra ~$100

My only problem with some RGB is it looks like faded pastels...I like sharp rich color.. And I prefer halo fans more than the full fan color.

Homer beat everyone to the best of RGB - he bleeds RGB. Whatever companies have been dishing out since, pales in comparison and they all need to stop, right now.

In the UK Corsairs RGB fans are £70+ for three 120mm fans, that is f*cking ridiculous imo, I have seen people with 6 or more of them, they are hideous to look at and the price is hideous. Some are £30 each, so £90 for a pack of three, anyone paying £30 for one fan needs a shrink.

I really dont mind RGB as long as it's used correctly and isn't just a smorgasboard of colours that clash and look hideous. As long as it's able to be turned off I don't see the problem with it,

Also, it's way better than back in the days when you had to buy fans etc in whatever colour you wanted them in, then if you wanted another colour it was all new stuff. I agree that some companies have obviously taken too much acid and sprinkle RGB on everything like it's hundreds n thousands which can be very distracting, but overall I don't think it's the cancer of PC gaming that it's made out to be.

Next thing after RGB LED's:

Integrated RGB laser diodes... and micro-mirror motion controller to make shapes outside the PC.... project your RGB in the entire room !

I can understand companies wanting to reduce cost by implementing an AIO solution. Instead of making a blue LED fan, and a red LED fan etc etc they can simply make one fan to rule them all! However, LEDs are dirt cheap, and I find it bad form that these companies are milking the public with high costs just because it's RGB!

Exactly, LED's are cheap yet they charge £30 for one 120mm RGB fan.....no thanks

@tigger I used to have the same mindset and hated the rainbow/wave/rain effects with every single color rolling by( my daughter loves it) Then I got into customizing the colors or just turning the off. Increase or decrease brightness and change the color on whim to fit my mood. Right now mine are set to a dark green 0 r 70 b 10 g with a breathing pattern. When I don't want to look at it I just turn it off.

Mouse ...most of them. Current favorite(s): G403, Roccat Kone AIMO, Roccat Tyon, Razer Lancehead, DA Elite
Keyboard ...yeah, bunch of these too. (Current favorite(s): Logitech G513 and G910, Roccat Vulcan AIMO 120).
RGB is great. PC building is about OPTIONS, and there are more options now than ever, including colors (or lack thereof). I had to solder and specially source orange LEDs back in the day, and they didn't even make teal LEDs...so it's nice to have some of my favorite colors as an accent color now on some builds.

Still, I agree - manufacturers just need to tweak it a bit - less is definitely more. AMD's Wraith Spire RGB is a perfect example of RGB done right in my opinion. Just a single LED accent ring. I just wish I could change the color of the RADEON/R cube on my Vega...

I think Phanteks has a good approach to RGB on their cases. No huge garish swaths of color, just precise accents that are almost invisible unless turned on. It should be a compliment to the build, not assault your eyes. I hope the use of fiber optics and diffusing strips catches on more and more instead of direct lighting and blaring effects.

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.
LOL, you can run away from it now, but it will get you at some point!

Nah i kinda agree, its a little too much, too quick and most of all "too confining" with what appears to be a major product tune up with circus lights and lesser variety for quality based and performance engineering. But here's the tough one, in 2017 I threw in my chips and got myself an RGB whale of a fish lol (nah, a more minimalist approach). Got bored by the second day and ended up sticking with a dimmed dark blue or occasionally soft pastel white profile.

It doesn't bother me that much but it bamboozles the living whatlooolals out of me when buyers discount performance for a mashed up RGB circus build.

What's funny is it doesnt affect performance and you really arent paying a big premium to have them. A motherboard/ram/heatsink/aio/ssd performs exactly the same with or without leds.

My build wasn't done with RGB but the wife's is.
She wanted it RGB-blingy and that's what she got. Looks like something crawled inside the case and got sick, spewed technocolored-vomit all over the place inside but she's happy with it.

I guess that's what counts right?

Who started that myth? :):D The photons of light push the heated air away faster in pulsing waves of light, surely.

I think RGB gets abused by Most.

Some love it but use it in such poor taste or disjointed setups it struggles to impress anyone, I have that mate RGB keyboard mouse and Mat? but inside the pc is an odd mix-up, set up to rainbow puke.

some straight up hate it but have not ever needed or considered possible advantages.

Some love it just for the style, I in part was in this camp.

But using it for a while I freakin love it now, minimally used it looks good.

But get the right kit and it can look amazing Andbe quite useful, I crunch , my pc is on all year ,normally with very subtle vaguely reb with very very mild blue sequences, as it heats up the RGB indicates the heat of the CPU and soon GPU via light intensity and patterning, I don't even need the monitor on or to focus to know that my pc is not self-destroying.
After 10 ish years of having a pc on 24/7, there have been moments when this would have helped.

I actually want to toss some corsair strips into the RGB bits of this crosshair hero6 so they match better, next rebuild perhaps.
