The RGB alone can run Crysis itself. ;)

No but seriously the RGB lighting doesn't bother me, I have it on a slow colour changing setting, I don't mind it.
Hah, Does it run Crysis - the RGB strip edition..

personally I have just blue LED strips and an UV strip, not too overkill IMO... pic of my PC on the previous page.

I have LED rainbow string lights on top of my kitchen cabonets and under them. They can be set to do all kinds of crazy things. But still it doesn't make cooking food any faster. But it does add some special ambience to the kitchen.

Honestly I turned all them fancy lights off. I just find it a distraction and another thing to draw power.
It bothers me that Toms Hardware now includes "No RGB" as a con in their reviews of anything that could contain RGB. What have we come to?

I know right. It's no longer about raw performance but you must also have a MB that has 100+ LED rainbow colored lights. Why?

What is the bonus?
They do NOTHING for performance they do IN fact take POWER to run ( so much for being as green as you possibly can).
Look you can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a PIG! LOL. I think they dress them up so you will buy them up without even considering the performance.

If you have a windowed case and the lighting isn't an overkill one, then I like it :)

I might be a little rusty, Trickson.. but I thought you were madly in love with RGB when you built your rig with the D15? Nothing wrong with it if you were. If I had it I would probably use a color or two :laugh:

Just gonna leave this pic here of my ugly ass system.
Currently trying to get it to run stable with 3GHz on 2x Epyc 7551 ES chips...
VRMs are reaching 100 degrees under sustained load so need some fans on them.

As you can see, the zip ties were brought out quite a few times.

Bottom fans aren't spinning as they're directly connected to the GPU, which is in zero RPM mode.

Did a little mod for my 1tb SSD nvme drive. With just the heatsync the SSD at idle would stay at 52C. Playing a game with the fans moving air over the heatsync the temps would stay about 46C, until the game was over. I'm using a Noctua 40x20mm fan, mainly because they're quiet. With the fan on the heatsync the temp stays at 39C. The fasteners aren't fancy but for now they work.
