Those are very nice switches.

And that's an intriguing build you've got there. Those fuses are on the same side as the switches? And are those two huge radiators? Let me go and subscribe to know more.

The cost of all of that does add up building a PC when you consider ALL of the components that come with RGB and all the supporting people that make it happen. Surely $100 or more in RGB and associated backend costs for a new build.





The market is already segmented by feature set...sometimes its as little as a few SATA ports or onboard wifi. If not right now, sometime in the future...there will be enough of us enthusiasts that DONT want RGB that manufacturers will cater to us.



But then again, that isn't what Computex is about...it's about flagships and being flashy...RGB is perfect for this venue (puke).
No, it doesn't, because your product cost includes R&D. In order to make not-RGB, they now need to go back to making RGB LED, While LED, Blue LED, Purple LED, Green LED, Red LED, Orange LED, No LED Black, No LED with White trim, No LED with Grey trim, etc. Every single one of those requires them to vet paint/stain quality, and take designer time to pick exactly the right tint for what they want. Cost that is passed on to you.

That product variety comes at a cost between new designs they don't want to make, and a full possibility of some of them simply not doing well and being wasted money. Why bother when you can have one product that is every color including none for the low low price of a couple LEDs and some cable?

Every single bit of RGB in the rainbowiest rig you can imagine (RAM, cables, fans, MB, GPUs, coolers, PSU, you name it) is going to cost under $20. You will not be catered to, you will be told to press the off button. If you are catered to, it'll be a product that they just didn't install the LEDs in or they chose to disable them for one reason or another.

I am willing to pay development cost for performance and quality. But I am definitely not willing to pay any premium for RGB, even if the underlying product is decent.

Overall the manufacturers at Computex are losing the plot with RGB everything - at least for me and people like me. If other people like that stuff - and the market suggests that there is big demand for it - then fine. But for me as soon as I see RGB the product has to be truly amazing to prevent me just moving straight on.
On the flip side;

I no longer need to go buy white ram for my black/white/silver build just because my old RAM was red.
