    Re: Corsair launches the iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Towers

    My first question is - Does the quad tower setup daisy-chain to run off one AC power adapter, or does each tower require it's own, thus taking up all four mains sockets in my room or encouraging very unsafe use of a 4-way extension cable?
    Second question is how it all connects - I presume anything PC-related will require a proprietary connector and will not be compatible with standard pin RGB headers?

    Really?
    How nice...

    My Aquacomputer Farbwerk 360 has four channels that does 90 LEDs each, for a total of 360 LEDs, each one individually addressable. I can run it internally or externally and it's controlled by Aquasuite with a vastly wider array of patterns. I believe it even has an add-on that allows it to use the proprietary connectors on NZXT and Corsair RGB kit!

    For that, I could have six towers with more LEDs per tower, or up to twenty-four towers at 15 LEDs each, all run off one small palm-sized unit. About the only thing I can't do is run it without a PC really as there's no on-board memory I am aware of (although I could even be wrong about that!).

    My Farbwek360 costs £30, includes two LED strips plus cables, and the expansions are, like, a fiver.


    OK, so... credit to Corsair for trying something different, but at ridiculous rip-off prices for something I could make myself for about a quarter of the price with six times the performance and even a better headset stand, it's a very small credit... barely more than a footnote.

    Indeed. I would actually rather like something like this (if it was Razer, to work with synapse) but not at that sort of money - it would be good for lighting up parts of my room when streaming to create some nice effects.

    As it is, I think i'll stick with the also ludicrously expensive, but under half the price, Phillips hue option. It's not "gaming" but does what I need for a lot less.

    Still, I bet they will sell a bunch and their you-tuber fans (or shills, depending on your level of pessimism) will rate them as amazing value

    Re: Corsair launches the iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Towers



    Wow a solution looking for a problem.

    Can it sync to a heart-rate monitor....? I can think of a comedy use in a gym. The rainbow heart-attack warning system detector... That would be more useful than a desk top accessory where I do not want lights glaring in the corners of my eyes.

    There is actually a precedent.... They've just run way too far with it, is all.

    Basically, you're not supposed to play games or watch TV in a completely darkened room. You're meant to have some kind of background lighting on, ideally something that also lights up the area immediately around your screen.

    There are some 'Gaming' solutions that already achieve this - Most lamps are just on or off, so these use RGB light strips that go on the back of your monitor. Obviously you can change the light colour, intensity, brightness and other attributes to best suit your own eyes, without having to use the Unicorn Vomit Demo mode... but you can also do all that if you want. Plenty of other solutions implement it far better - Mine runs off one of the USBs on the monitor itself.

    Corsair merely jumped on the bandwagon without really seeing what everyone else had already done.

    Yeeeesssss, more RGB uselessness !

    I wonder how many of these will ACTUALLY sell ? Corsair seem to think there is a market for it. I bet there is a percentage of the Overclockers.co.uk/forums are wild for it.

    It is buy, open up and throw away methods people are going after today, it would not be listed here if they did not have a market for it already.

    It is like buying a Ferrari sun glasses and not having a Ferrari.

    Re: Corsair launches the iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Towers

    I'd like to express my true thoughts on this, but I don't want to be banned from the forum.

    I have an idea - we wait for this to hit the market and track it on Amazon via 3camels, then watch the price plummet as the complete lack of demand becomes apparent.

    There is obviously the possibility that some morons will buy this - after all, there's one born every minute - in which case, I'll say congratulations to Corsair for successfully extracting fleece from humans... or extracting urine from the tech community.

    Yeah, one of those.

    Re: Corsair launches the iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Towers

    That's crazy money. If you want funky RGB just get AMD's wraith prism cooler. Its pretty funky when setup with its odd strobe effect on the fan blades - its also only £13 on Amazon used. Heck my new case, a Gamemax F15 came with 2x 20cm aRGB, 1 x 13cm aRGB fan + fan/argb controller for £60 total.

    I can see the down the side of the monitor lighting (like the phillips stuff) + headset stand would be nice for £40, maybe £50 at a push but this is crazy. Then again I guess I'm not the target market.

    That's oddly specific... You have a personal gripe with that lot, or something?

    I'm sure there are people in forums all over the world who would go equally wild for this. Mainly those who simply aren't aware it can be, and has been, done better for less money.

    Ooooh.... hows about marketing it to makers of resus trolleys? Link it to the defib and, when it all goes tits up, you can have it flashing at 120bpm, to allow for perfect CPR rate... AND you could have the colour changing for when someone is compressing too deep or too shallow!

    Corsair, I've just found a market for your utterly stupid product, in an equally utterly stupid setting.

    I'm sure it'll also help weed out any latent epileptics in the room as well.

    I came for the price, wondering how Razer they would go.

    They went full Razer. Never go full Razer.
