    Default The RGB Craze

    I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on RGB

    Is it getting out of hand?

    Is it sometimes overdone?

    Or the more the better?

    Please post on your opinions

    I hated it to begin with, but I'm more accepting of it now.
    I like to keep it down to a low roar.

    I LOVE IT! But we've already established I'm 5 at heart. That said, I'll probably have a post this week where it went too far. Thermaltake has voice controlled RGB fans. Voice controlled!?! Why?????

    Actually, I've thought about when it goes too far and I think I came up with a good answer. It only goes too far when people who don't like RGB no longer have a choice to make a PC their way. Either RGB has to be negligible on added cost with options to turn it off, or professional designs need to be available on the market. I love the addressable RGB stuff, but I appreciate companies like Phanteks, SilverStone, Lian Li, Fractal Design, etc. who give builders the solid, professional look. As long as they continue to exist, I don't think there will be a "too far." What do you guys think?

    You make a good point Josh your right in that respect, and I guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

    Have it in this new build but don't really use it.
    Also have a keyboard I bought that has it too yet to me it's not really what I bought it for, I got the keyboard for this new system since the older one was beyond "Old" and it was the only one the store that had a cable instead of being wireless so I got it. If you plan on showing off your system it's fine, to me it's whatever floats your boat but lately it seems like everything has it and this had made it more "Eh" instead of something worth showing off...... I mean if everyone has it and has seen it already then what's the point?

    Also if you have it in a case that hides it all you'll have is a hidden light show, can't show that off and in my case it's not like I really have anyone over to see it anyway.
    I just use the system and that's it.
