What is this RGB trend in PC's. I hate it. Why can't it be just a normal black pc. Is there any use to it?
My SSD thermal-throttled due to rgb lights.

    What are they, spot lights?
    LEDs don’t put out much heat.

    That awkward moment when your thermal dissipation system is defeated by your pretty insulators.

    Add a fan and remove the blankets, space heater, and jacuzzi.

    I require my pc to - like me - be as gay as possible with rainbows everywhere

    @Root Off! Like I would have a PC without a jacuzzi! I'm not a peasant!

    @alexbrooklyn "I knew it! The radical LGBT group strikes again :o"

    PS: I'm the same as you, OP. But it's still possible to find hardware than isn't as flamboyant as @alexbrooklyn (albeit a tad harder)

    Ok, confession. This SSD is a cheap chinese one. Recently, it was running VERY slow, so I removed the lighting. Temps dropped by ~12 degrees(no shit) and it works normally.

    For that one asshole who will say - WhY dOnT yOu GeT a BeTtEr One, I am almost broke. The same reason why I am meddling with rgb ssd's.

    @AvyChanna A cheap $5 fan will do it world of good 😊

    @Root but in some components the leds will produce more heat than the components itself.

    Even fucking RAM bars have RGB shit these days. I hate that crap. My PC shall be black, dark, and quiet.

    I've been doing it wrong all these years.

    I need to get into this Jacuzzi warming system, don't have to worry about water cooling it now.

    Seriously though. If a LED causes the SSD to run hot, I'd be wondering why else is wrong with it, is it an SSD, or is it a SD card in a SSD case?🤣

    @C0D4 Ha, you're not wrong. It could well be an almost empty case with a USB stick and some added weight.

    Personally I fucking wish the trend was metal rather than lights. Like solid aluminum with cool designs on parts like RAM rather than a million lights

    the only place i can understand RGB is per key lighting on the keyboard for setting custom layouts. Everything else is unnecessary (though it sometimes can look pretty cool)
