Personal opinions on RGB....

Recommended Posts

im not, but its slowly growing on me.. needs to be in moderation and definitely not overdone like many do. To many people value aesthetics over performance and it bugs me to see someone spend 200$ on RGB fans and lighting, but only have a 1050 in there system. This is where most of my disdain for RGB likely comes from.

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

I love the RGB on my pc but it also has the option to turn off the led's inside of the case which is nice when im leaving it on overnight, all the parts inside of my PC are black except the RAM (TForce, i think) and GPU (Gaming Z 2070) and i think the RGB on the 2070 is beautiful but the ram is a little to bright for my liking, for some reason the RAM RGB cannot be changed as none of the software picks it up, might ask a question on here about it

Sort of. Limited RGB set to one color can actually be great but unicorn vomit... yeah no thanks

I dont mind having 2 colours on my keyboard, but my case is all one colour and if i can figure out the RAM RGB it will be a breathing Blue while the GPU will be a breathing Red

I mostly don't care about RGB. For the most part it makes poorly thought out rigs and general set ups tacky and stupid.

 

But RGB done right? Like say you have a day wallpaper with lots of green and your RGB and ambient lights switch colors then purple at night and such, those applications work really well.

 

Even rainbow patters can be made to look pretty nice if you match it with your wallpaper, surroundings, etc. But most people honestly just get something "RGB" and do nothing else to their set ups. Which is fine don't get me wrong I don't worry about those things myself but I also don't spend extra on RGB

Less noticible PC, the better. I do need an illuminated keyboard (prefer red or white), don't like the color palette of My Little Pony, smeared across the hardware

What do you have against MLP? ò.Ó

 

In regards to OP, everyone has their particular taste regarding RGB, besides RGB doesn't mean you need the rainbow every time you can just set it the colors your want whenever you want or do like some people do, buy RGB and leave it on static same color for its whole life...

 

it's still a nice thing to have on peripherals but go out your way to add it on the case is already stretching to a big nope from me.

I like RGB purely because it has a wider color range.

My rig wasn't built to be a forum tourer, it was built so I could record VHS tapes at high quality and play Team Fortress 2 at 3840x2160. It's not pretty, it isn't eye-catching, but it's a hell of a workhorse.

I don't care for RGB, it's a meme that goes wrong when you do it wrong.

I use to be really anti-rgb, but pretty much every case with decent cooling has a side panel now. It’s grown on me, as long as its not rainbow puke. You can make the RGB pretty unobtrusive when you want to.

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?

I initially planned and build my pc in red at no extra cost

even rma and got a rgb mobo, i just use red.

asus b350 plus >B50F / corsair red led ram/ msi gaming x/ cm 212 red led

(imagine yourself, I wont post a pic)

 

the ram is the only part I think led is needed to show it is working.

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