Do any gamers out out there fall for the joke that RGB increases frames per second when playing games? There is an article saying that the computer components can make an impact in frames per second and not RGB lighting.
One of my favorite tech YouTuber, Hardware Canucks, actually made a comment that “RGB increases FPS as well. Don’t forget that” when reviewing a computer keyboard.
Yeah, why not use our smartphones to shine a flashlight right up our eyes? That would increase frames per second when playing games, right? I’ve made a comment on YouTube and I did just that: turn on the flashlight on my smartphone and face it toward my right eye (I’m blind in my left eye since the day I was born). I kind of get the feeling that the computer and gaming industry makes me want to take that joke too far that flashlight from my smartphone increases frames per second.
I even saw a video about Micro-ATX cases making a comeback.
Dmitri commented in the video that not having a tempered glass side panel is a weird one. Yeah, really? How about I dazzle myself with all the RGB components so I can keep myself distracted while working remotely and let the productivity go down the drain?
This is why I am not obsessed with RGB lighting and computer cases with tempered glass side panels. Plus, there aren’t that many choices when it comes to choosing a computer case that has just the plain side panel and nothing else. And besides, it’s not my place to promote self-harm on the Internet.
A couple of months ago, I wanted to replace my AMD RX 5600 XT that does not have any form of lighting which I enjoyed the most with an NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti, but as far as I have looked in Amazon, there are no NVIDIA GPUs that do not have any form of lighting in the market. I mean, I tried, but the GPU that I purchased which I thought wouldn’t have any lighting at all, did!
And now I’ve had to live with it. I don’t plan on doing any kind of crypto-mining but only for gaming and I found that GPU at the price point of MSRP as of September 25, 2022. It is a nice find, but it did have lighting which I do not want.
One day, I plan on hiding my computer in a server closet or for the time being, put that computer case in an enclosure such as this:
I have also written a blog a few years ago where I talked about hiding my computer in a home closet (I would call it a “server room” of sorts) and make use of some network KVM or maybe a network keyboard/mouse switch with separate active HDMI 2.1 cables between the server room and the computer room.
This is why I am very obsessed with being an anti-RGB/anti-TG type of guy and that I would love to hide my computer out of sight.
With all that said, as I mentioned in the subject of my thread, are there any Tech YouTubers out there who are NOT obsessed with tempered glass cases and are NOT obsessed with RGB lighting when it comes to gaming?
And yes, I promise to take care of my eyesight, but as I said earlier, I do get the feeling that the computer/gaming industry does make me want to shine my smartphone’s flashlight against my good eye for hours just to increase frames per second just because 100% of all the gamers out there love RGB lighting.
