Well, if you can synchronize to music you can also do it in games. Imagine blowing up a big ammunition dump in a game, BOOM all the LEDS light-up synchronize to the explosion.
There's a few games and software that are integrated with Corsairs iCue.
Gotta scroll down the page a ways to see the small list. it's kinda neat, but when I'm really into the game I don't even notice the changes to my lighting scheme.

Yeah, once I'm caught up in a game, I tend to shut everything else out except the screen. That was the case even as a little kid playing in arcades, with all of the sights and sounds you could think of (although physical responsiveness, like moving seats, has always been cool.. and I still notice rumble in my gamepads).

but they're just being jerks for sticking to their guns to something that doesn't match 99.999999% of the market.
This. And it's why I won't buy any of their fans except the ones that are decent colors. Luckily, they have listened;
Granted, their 92mm & 80mm fans are only available in grey as an alternate color, but it's still better than the brown-beige nonsense.

Just got a NH-U12A, but unfortunately, the A12 fans are only beige atm.

Impeller on NF-A12x25 are not made from material as other PC Fans.
That's some Sterrox - Liquid Crystal Polimer Compound.

NF-A12x25 PWM in original Noctua color is best to maintenance.
Black fans look on mess when dust collect. But dust very nice clean from Sterrox Impeller.

True, but I don't mind the tradeoff. I do occasional cleaning anyhow.
