I can understand the RGB key lighting for your keyboard, as you can actually change the colors per key. It's cool and, when used correctly, can actually help you in games.

But all this RGB stuff inside your computer is just kinda... meh. I moved away from LED lighting inside my computer several years ago, and I just cannot move over to RGB internal lighting.



As for the sound card, I have a hard time believing this thing will sound better than my Sound Blaster E5. I just cannot bring myself to purchase an internal sound card after using an external DAC/AMP setup.

Lighting aside, it looks like a great card.
