Blinkenlights

Sun Jun 16, 2019 10:58 pm

I saw a nice-looking RGB system in Best Buy last week, and I just had to do it for myself. The case is a Cooler Master MB530P. Using the built-in controller for the three front fans and some daisy-chained fans for the two on the CPU cooler and rear exhaust. The graphics card syncs to the motherboard, so it and the cooler all cycle through solid colors together.

Call it a mid-life crisis, I guess.

Not a great photo. I need to clean up my desk and re-arrange stuff to make it really work.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.

Well boys, we lost another good man to RGBism.

i guess RGB will conquer us all eventually

i have actually had troubles finding some good non RGB fans lately, sure they do exist but are usually expensive (noctuas) or low end crappy fans

He'll grow out of it. More importantly, as the Chinese grow out of their nouveau riche fascination with bling, the market will swing back to a better balance.

:lol: Yeah I suppose I will, but the thing about RGB is that it can be easily turned off. Just unplug the light headers and presto.

I hear there's a pill they're developing to cure that.
