We're comfortably into 'taking the piss' territory imo. What with RGB external drives and RGB SSDs.
...and RGB PSUs, a component even the blingiest of blinged up builds tends to hide away.
These new cards have pretty lighting effects on the fans like the Gigabyte Aorus graphic cards, problem is though, unless you crane your neck to see them you won't be able to see the pretty lights otherwise.
Vertical GPU brackets.
But teah, RGB is too much now a days imho.
RGB SSDs and RGB PSUs are just ridiculous imho.
The default "RGB on until switched off " is also annoying.
Don't forget to add those Lian Li RGB cables!
RGB is pointless IMHO, just another fad that needs to die in flames.
RGB isn't bad in and of itself. You can fine tune the colour scheme of your pc to your hearts content and that's all well and good. But the amount of builds you see on various Facebook groups, Instagram, builds.gg etc in full vomit inducing rainbow mode is ridiculous.
If I want case lighting I'll sort it out myself so I can set it up where it's needed. The cost of which will depend largely on if I'm going with LED Fans, I'm now accustomed to high quality pwm fans so if I wanted fans with LEDs it's going to cost a fair bit, but a few led strips can be had for £20. Cases should always be offered in a basic non-rgb spec.
In December you wrote that 'everyone should own dummy RGB memory modules' and that 'My view is that anyone that criticises this move has probably never seen RGB memory in the flesh'.
Now you're criticising an RGB case because 'it's the cost that's the issue here'.
So, to clarify, are we to spend money on memory modules that serve no purpose beyond RGB but not on a case that has a practical use, in that it's a case? Am I following correctly?
Look on the bright side, guys: if we've reached Peak RBG, then we've hopefully also reached Peak Articles About RGB.
Not at all - has anyone tested the colour gamut of these peripherals. I want nice triangular diagrams so I can see which fake RGB memory has the truer reds!
Next I want my fans to sync their colour changes so I get a CRT like effect that looks like a dodgy round monitor, and the controller chip needs to have enough processing power to play videos, or even better an actual game of doom!
My motherboard has some red lighting, turned off in the BIOS.
Apparently my new motherboard has a random strip of bare PCB pretending to be a copper trace near the sound codec, which is lit from underneath with yellow LEDs. Because... nup, I got nothin'.
We won't have reached 'peak RGB' until someone adds UV and nIR LEDs in order to market their RGB as being so RGB it goes beyond the visible spectrum.
No rgb mechanical drives
no rgb power cables
no rgb tubing
no rgb coolant
no rgb motherboard tray
-Obviously we have not done our part to push it to the obnoxious extreme conclusion.
There are plenty of RGB power cable offerings out there already.
There are RGB modules for the tubing though.
I think you can get strips for power cables too.
RGB Power cables
Not unless you count mixing in iridescent flake.
Not a commercial product, so only partial credit.
I'm fully aware this was a joke but a company beginning with C and ending in r does makes some very shoddy fans with colours all over the place.
HD - ENCLOSURE. I want an actual HD.
Cable - I should have specified the thing that plugs into a wall outlet. From there we can rgb the outlet, then get started on the rest of the house.
Tubing - Pffft. fittings. I want tube, baby.
MB tray - Fair enough. I'll allow it.
Don't nuke me, I'm just being a cheeky sh*t today.
