    I find it so baffling that all the threadripper boards I have seen so far all have "gaming" and RGB attached to them when you wouldn't (or shouldn't) be choosing this CPU for a purely-for-gaming rig.

    All these companies are still in business so I'm sure they have their reasons. I suspect the "e-peen + overkill gaming" is a lucrative and profitable market even if not a huge one...

    I'm more baffled when companies add RGB yet still add coloured accents to the board making the RGB pointless. Like why give me the ability to change the colour of lighting if you're still going to include orange plastic or metal and a bright red debug LED?
