    Well RGB can be okay if you use it right, but many seem to do it wrong letting it run the default all colors changing rainbow mode.
    I would / will only be using 1 color, and maybe 1 effect.
    And as i am on a Gigabyte motherboard with its very poor RGB software ( it don't really work for me any more ) then i have turned RGB off on the motherboard but i am still using it on the RAM and the GFX card with their own respective software.
    And i do plan to add a RGB strip or 2 to my next project case, but i am still only going to use 1 color there.

    I stopped using blue light in casemods back around 2004, and i changed to flat black and red, and next case i think will be flat black + yellow.
    BUT ! this might change as i have not yet come to terms about what i am going to do about all the silly glass panels on the level 20 XT case, i am even contemplating not having a "peephole" at all.
    But instead maybe install a PTZ camera inside the large case, though this i think will be problematic due to PTZ cameras not really being able to focus on things that near to the camera.

    Would be more cool with a LCD screen covering it, on which you could do interesting colors and graphics ASO

    Though i think that will require yet another connector ?

    Coming next, to a PC near you, RGB LEDs on the screws holding the motherboard in place...

    well you could make a single RGB SMD and then have a socket next to the mount hole / screw, so when you have done that up, you slide the little PCB with the RGB diode in the board mount so it cover the screw.
    But for the love of god don't tell anyone, this RGB fab have already gone too far, just like the use of blue LED light in / on stuff have gone on for 10 years too long.

    From a function point of view, no it doesn't make sense.
    But if you really do value those aesthetics enough, sure it may appeal.
    Just not to me.

    It would work much like the iBuyPower Snowblind case, basically you run it as an additional monitor.
    Could run off USB, or from a display output on GPU or motherboard, and run back into the case.
    Though if only after the look, and don't need it on an SSD, you could consider a display connectected to something like a Raspberry Pi.

    As GV says, dull, boring run-of-the-mill RGB with no greater capability than just diffused flowing rainbow pattern.
    The best ARGB will have point LEDs to mimic indicator lights on systems, or at least a TRON style patterning, rather than a wall of colour.

    Music is the space between the notes, and RGB is the dark spots between the LEDs!

    why do we even need RGB anyway? well it is nice I can switch the lights in my chassis if I have to check for components... but no one is really seeing the lightshow anyway so it seem more like a consumer thing instead of useable.... why not just put RGB diods all over your jacket and run around in town like that if you want to see RGB as in most cases hardly anyone will see it in your PC at home anyway.... it is annoying can only get certain quality components tuned this or that way then full of lightshow that having to pay extra for.

    Why do we need car interiors designed to look appealing? No-one but you is going to see them...
    Why do we have interior decoration? It's not like people driving by will see inside your house...

    No-one needs RGB. Many people want RGB.
    I like RGB because it allows me to customise my rig, without having to swap out all the LEDs every time I come up with a new colour scheme. Also, most of my lights do serve some kind of indicative function, leaving aside the additional LCD readouts and displays.
