Personal opinions on RGB....

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Surprised there is no independent forum, with sub-forums, on RGB.

Seeing as aesthetics are everything.

new builds with rgb -> either GPU, CPU/motherboard, or case section

modding -> modding subforum

general discussion -> this thread I guess? 

 


Ryzen 5 3600 stock | 2x16GB C13 3200MHz (AFR) | Radeon VII | ASUS Prime X570-P | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

Actually no, since it is somewhat a suggestion it should be on

I usually request them to be moved into modding. Unless its about particular part or software.

There's the modding sub forum for that, or the various other sub forums to discuss the parts those RGB lights are used on.

 

I can only imagine a RGB sub forum to have less than 5 threads, such as "LED strips from X manufacturer", "love it or hate it" or "show your builds with RGB"... and a few others like that... which again, can fit into the other sub forums that already exist.

Personally, I think that RGB lighting looks absolutely awesome, and I am happy that it is being integrated into computer hardware. However, I have noticed that some people are totally against it, this is strange to me considering it is usually possible to simply turn off the RGB lighting, or set it to a certain color. What do you guys think of the RGB craze? do you have any RGB lighting in your builds?

Some people like it, some don't. When done correctly it looks nice. Only RGB item I have is my Corsair Scimitar mouse.

Like it on keyboards, for the backlight. Hate it everywhere else. 

I'm of the opinion that LEDs lights (RGB or not) have no place in a computer. It's just an eyesore and a distraction in your peripheral vision, especially blinking LEDs. 

Hate them so much, I either ripped, masked or unplugged every LED lights in my computer.

I like it since there aren't specific orange motherboards, RAM, etc.

I dont care for RGB its just an electronics device.

"Couldn't care less" would be the appropriate phrase.

Either or

"Could care less" means you still have some care about it. "Couldn't care less" means you don't have any care for it.

i use RGB for the keyboard to make it colour coded, especially for macro keys

 

for the rest of the PC and peripherals, i'm okay with it but not necessary

Love it. Now, that doesn't mean that I love a rainbow lighting effect that pulses and flashes and has a wave deal going.

I like being able to choose my build color, without having to carefully select components. With this if I get RGB, it can match whatever I want it to. I can change WASD to different colors. I can change my mouse to light up different colors so I know what mode it's in.

 

I have no idea why people have such issues with RGB. Most people I see just bash it because it seems to be the 'in' thing to do.

Guess what. Don't like RGB? Get something that doesn't have it. There's loads of selection out there, and having yet another choice is not a bad thing.

There really aren't any consumer grade motherboards out there without RGB.

I would prefer RGB over having to source and research on good [INSERT COLOR] hardware. It can also be used as a mood ring: Blue for approach, green for STFU, and red for "computer is dead".

Now that is something that I can understand. Personally I don't find it much of a distraction, although I can see how some people do. Sometimes the lights from the RGB on my keyboard catch my attention. it doesn't bother me because I think they look awesome, but if I don't want to be distracted I can simply turn them off.
