    Please manufacturers, think of the users who don't want rgb when you design your cases/parts, or at least offer up a non rgb and/or non glass side panel options for your cases...
    My case mod project are build with one such case, so i am ditching the glass in favor of something not transparent.
    BUT ! i am still going to have a little light in there, but just 1-2 colors and not really something you will see in day 2 day operations.

    I have just ordered a nice new keyboard, and it have light too, which i will use just in 1 steady color, then i dont have to use my lamp on the computer table at night when i am typing.

    In all honesty I can't find a spec anywhere near what I want from most of these oems (hell I'm struggling to find a place to buy the ram I want, even crucials own site is out of stock lol) and in all honesty after I've adjusted the specs to get as close as possible they usually end up costing a LOT more than it would cost to build it myself (even after taking off a fair cost to build and any 'fix at home' warranties they might give).... now I might be in the minority in 'professional' circles but this thread is showing I'm not alone in not wanting rgb etc

    Rubbish, Garish, and Boring.

    On the other end of the stick, i`ve seen `blackout` components (no RGB) on sale at a premium over the lit versions, so less is actually more sometimes

    Brilliant, I can't stand RGB and think this looks absolutely disgusting, but I just know there'll be someone who fits this upside down just to show off the colours.

    Can we go back to solid panel cases, or cases with slots for side fans yet, please.

    It's the little things, like how BIOS updates seem to re-enable the default RGB settings. Mouse drivers have to be installed just to turn the LEDs off. With lots of PCs to maintain, it feels like I am constantly turning off the RGB on something making it annoying like a dripping tap can get to you over time.

    Thunderbolt can certainly go as well though. That isn't the same; Thunderbolt is an un-kept promise, something that says it is going to make life wonderful and then drives you nuts with its random strops. Had a girlfriend like that once.

    Don't need either in my life

    There was a comment earlier about just turning them off if you don't want them on too... seems pretty pointless to have the extra cost if they're always turned off.
    I've actually seen it done well but the reasons I don't want it isn't about how the pc case looks... and even if it was about aesthetics, my personal preference for case design is minimalist without any glass rather than having a glass side panel (which I wouldn't see due to where/how my pc is situated and the side of my desk it's on... my left) with Blackpool illuminations inside.

    As to thunderbolt, tbh it's falling under the same issues that firewire (I used to network my pc's with this when gige wasn't 'standard') had, 'good' product but lack of universal support (not to mention rubbish windows support) and a competing product (ironically usb in both cases) being better supported cross platform.

    Audio, I'd be happy with a board without onboard audio and then using a decent add on card, I'm not into OC (I'm primarily after stability and 'long usage') so the boost option could go too.

    As well as reset numerous other things back to default, too, like my fan curve profiles. I have to go in and recreate all that stuff, but that's just the nature of computermabobbing, innit.

    If I made a list of all the pointless/unused features my Windows, Office, monitor, motherboard and case came with, and then adjusted the price for a stripped down version, I'd probably be able to afford a second car.

    The point is, RGB is one of many, many wonderful things that only some people have a use for, but is still included to give everyone that choice. If you don't like having many, many wonderful choices of many, many wonderful things, go and buy Apple.
