OK I will wait for night to come.

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 no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#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.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

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.

I like RGB, but I don't understand the craze for and against it. People are like RGB is the future, RGB! RGB! and then people are also like rgb is bad and whatnot.

 

RGB is a thing to spice up a build and make it look cool(not saying that there aren't ways to make a build look cool without RGB) but I wouldn't go hard for it

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.

So like that Trabant that Doug DeMuro Reviewed sometime back...

 

 

Nah I just like my pcs like they're something bought off a shelf or found in the offices of an office complex.

I don't like flashy RGB. My AIO is just white, and my case has one thin line at the front.

Flashy is just distracting.

My PC is a work station and not a video arcade machine.😁  I have a Fractal Design Define case without a window as I have no need to see the insides and the side that is usually windowed faces a wall.  I guess most MoBos have some sort of RGB these days so when time comes to update, I'll probably have a minimal amount of RGB.  I would not spend money for other RGB components.

 

EDIT:  workstation is also running 24/7

Eh, having RGB LEDs isn't something that would be super important for me in a computer, and I'm neither against nor for having tons of RGB parts. The only part in my system that has RGB LEDs is my graphics card, and even then it's on the more subtle side so it's really just something nice to look at.
