Anyone else not crazy about RGB?

Recommended Posts

I never cared about pretty lights, my computer is like a Soviet car, ugly as crap and missing some nice-to-haves, but perfectly handles almost everything I throw at it.

My PC is in my bedroom. Leaving it on at night and having a lightshow isn't something I want.

I know that many RGB controllers can be set to be shutdown.. but then that's an extra step I'd have to take over none at all for not having any LED.

Not to mention, I'm easily distracted, having lights in my peripheral vision is distracting to me and I'd always end up looking at it thinking something moved. (The fact that I have a floater in my right eye that's visible on bright lights really doesn't help either on that side of things, I always see "something moving" when there's nothing)

 

With all that said, I have nothing against "RGB" itself, where it makes sense. Like as a keyboard backlight.
When you're getting an RGB chair to go with an RGB desk along an RGB monitor.... Wtf is wrong with you?

As for RGB, not a fan.  That's why I use a non-windowed Fractal case.

I don't like lights in general. I don't want shit shining in my face as I try to play games or do shit. Graphic card is RGB because everything is these days, but it's hidden inside an all black case. For which I had to paint POWER and HDD LED on the front coz it made my whole room a disco floor at night...

i wouldnt pay anything for RGB, if a product happens to have it il probably turn off that godawful unicorn vomit. the only rgb thing i have atm is my mouse which is just set to red which i dont even see because its covered by my hand at all times its on. RGB pretty much always has awful yellows so there is no place for it in my life atm


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

RGB is one of those things were in small amounts, it can make things look sharp, but can be easily overdone. My standard for where that overdone line is varies. Sometimes I'll have all of the pretty colors, sometimes I turn off everything except the case LEDs and leave those plain white.

 

The constantly rotating bright colors, though, just give me a headache.


I'm pretty sure my purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.

Could you not just unplug the power led & hdd led cables from the front panel connectors, or am I misunderstanding what you are meaning here?

I still want to see the status of the system (especially since it's so quiet you often have to look at the lights to know if it's even on), just not at 1200 lumens...

haha, fair enough, when you said you'd painted them, thought you meant literally blacking them out.

Nah, just top of the LEDs, because they were projecting a literal beam of light across the room on to the closets on the opposite end. Imagine the disco of HDD LED blinking like mad because of system activity. After painting the top of LED, I can still see a faint light if I look at it, but doesn't project the light all over the room. It's the usual trick I use to "silence" the LED lights.

Yup, I know what you mean, my MB has the worlds brightest single white LED that is only on when the system is powered off, but still plugged in, unless I remember to disable it everytime I'm messing about and reset the CMOS for something or other and it shines directly at my bed from the angle of where the PC is. There is absolutely no reason for that LED to exist.

Minimal RGB is preferable in my case, if it looks aesthetically pleasing I'll use it but if its all in your face and look at me RGB I hate it. subtlety is key.

I like RGB on my keyboard... it's all one color but the option to color code different keys individually for certain games and keybinds is a plus.

Personally I don't mind it on the whole. Done tastefully it can be nice. Like in my PC I only have Trident Z RGB RAM. The only other RGB things I have are my keyboard, which I usually leave on a slightly turquoise electric blue and my mouse which has been the orange SteelSeries backlight since the day I got it and I probably won't bother changing it. Too much RGB can be annoying like I'd never own one of the rave machines Linus has built on that channel in the past but I think a little is good and my computer has turned heads more in my dorm room when I have people over since I added it.

I leave my PC on 24/7 and seems like it would annoy me more then look cool..

I never be a fan of RGB, I prefer plain white lighting.

 

I have a Phanteks DRGB Starter Kit installed inside my PC but ended up never be turned on after a few weeks it's turned on of the installation.

 

In the end I found myself that I dont like any lighting inside a PC except hardware function indicator lights.
