    Re: Corsair releases dummy Vengeance RGB Pro DIMMs

    I'm getting so pissed off with all this RGB on everything. If I wanted to see flashing lights in the corner I'd put up the bloody Christmas tree!..... oh crap, I knew there was something I'd forgotten

    Nice idea and that Christmassy PC at the end is kinda cute....
    But Corsair can faff right off with that asking price, though!!!

    Make it £10 or maybe £15 and you'd have a deal. These are basically fancy versions of existing RGB-addressable LED lighting strips, which only cost £20-25 for a whole metre.

    Re: Corsair releases dummy Vengeance RGB Pro DIMMs

    I have vengeance ram and 2 empty slots, a pair of these would look great in my rig! But that price is steep for what it is...

    well this will totally help avoid scammers on ebay preying on the unwary RAM buyer won't it! Who spends this much time looking inside their case? Tragic...

    Re: Corsair releases dummy Vengeance RGB Pro DIMMs

    Each to their own, but to me all these silly lights are pointless. They’re just a way to try and get us to spend more. When I’m gaming, I’m looking at my monitor, not my case. And my PC never leaves my man cave, so no-one else is ever going to see it anyway.

    Re: Corsair releases dummy Vengeance RGB Pro DIMMs

    This RGB stuff is like Brexit - it just wont die.

    More's the pity.
    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!

    If it was a fiver then I would understand. I wouldn't buy any, but would understand it.

    But it doesn't seem that long ago that £40 was the cost of your 8GB system ram.

    Re: Corsair releases dummy Vengeance RGB Pro DIMMs

    Wow... It looks like a few other Hexites are starting to appreciate the RGB, these days.

    I'm often amused at the hate for RGB specifically, and how often it comes from fans of modding PCs, cars, or indeed many other things where coloured lights are a common feature... Had one guy promise to burn my PC if ever he found out where I lived, yet would wet his pants at the chance to own a replica KITT from Knight Rider.
