An attempt at some RGB...despite my dislike for the trend


Recommended Posts

Given my additional time at home now, I decided to play with some RBG. I generally find most rgb overdone, but wanted to try some basic backlighting. I ended up stumbling on this for $20 (no tax):

RBG strip kit

Comes with 2x roughly 12” strips, rf receiver (Built in the power supply), controller, and adapters to power from molex or sata. 
 

First impressions are pretty solid, though I have to sort final placement and tidy the wires. Pictures/update to follow.

Looks great and thanks for sharing but what does it look like on?

All buttoned up now. Still can decide on a colour. Took a picture in red, and my daughters choice of a kind of light blue/teal. I will be dimming it down for sure, but I am actually very happy with it so far. The pictures aren’t 100% correct, as the red appears much darker shade in person.

Yes but they are not true RGB they can just do one color at the the time. I find the integrated motherboard solutions the best ones plus the added components like GPUs, I remember the Strix GPUs had wonderful illumination and when combined with a glass window case Phanteks P400S was making for an amazing show. If your motherboard has RGB or ARGB strip headers I suggest getting Phanteks light strips, they are truly RGB and the motherboards have a lot better lighting options and potential through the software. Personally I worked with an Asus Prime Z270 which had an audio separation line that was done with RGB LED and it was looking awesome, ask Soul, he has one.

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software
    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
