Why does every product aimed at gamers / for gaming have to glow?

They meed to start making monitor frames and stands that glow. I think that's the only thing left.

I'll just wrap mine in Christmas lights for now.


They do actually sell lighting kits that you mount to the back of the monitor. If you're playing in the dark it's supposed to take some of the harshness of the screen away by adding a transition to the darkness in your peripheral.

Great link, although a really bright blue LED is always better than a normal red once since you can just overclock more with all that cooling.

Super bright reds aren't really a good idea since they just get way too hot, your computer wont really last long.

That does sound like a decent idea, but I want LEDs shining in my face, not on my wall.

Oh yeah, but it all depends on how many fans you have really. If you get 10-12 fans and overclock them you can use a few super reds with little or no risk.

That would combine red and blue to give you purple! Catastrophe waiting to happen!

I bought a controller like this a few years ago

http://www.amazon.com/Saitek-P2600-Rumble-Game-Controller/dp/B000AL7034

with a blue LED instead of red. HOLY F*** was it bright. I literally threw it away recently. The brightness .... it was actually physically painful to play in the light, and in the dark it was unbearable... my monitor was partially obscured.

I have yet to come across a blue LED that I didn't have to cover up. I have one of those ionic air filters in my bedroom and the power LED is blue. If I don't put a rag or something on it it literally illuminates my room. I also have a battery case for my phone with 4 blue LEDs to tell you how much juice is left in it, I was walking down the stairs in the dark and the LEDs were bright enough to light up the handrail through my pants.

Only ever had a problem with one red LED, I had a Wolfking Warrior keyboard thing, I liked it, played with it for a few hours, but once I was done I had a red spot burned in to my eye for what seemed like forever. I was able to put a few drops of Elmer's glue on it and that dimmed it down plenty though.

Basement dwelling neck-breathers need LEDs. Otherwise they can't see when they drop Twinkies particles into the case, mouse, or keyboard.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

OMG, blue LED's are so annoying. I have the laser of death on my HAF 932 which I covered up nicely with some duct-tape. The only blue ones I can stand are the ones on my Deck 82, which are nicely done and adjustable in brightness.

Crows like shiny things therefore everyone who buys shiny products are crows.
