Who is this aesthetic designed to appeal to and how do they not go insane with bright neon colored lights shining at them at all times? Has an entire generation of people become mentally ill?
>>78822292>Has an entire generation of people become mentally ill?funny you should ask
People with long socks, Touhou emulators, and bottles of HRT
How is this different from the LED obsessions of mid 90s and 2000s PC builders?

>>78822546you can't even turn it off without installing their multi-gigabyte windows only bloatware suites and making an account, and even then it doesn't save your settings if you boot into another OS.
>>78822292>Who is this aesthetic designed to appeal tome and anyone else old enough to remember spencer's gifts. and based zoomers love it too.>>78822456this. RGB is amazing. remember when you could only get 1 color of LEDs on your fans? remember when you had to use cathode tubes to light up your case? now you can choose pretty much any color. the only thing that's missing from modern case lighting is UV reactive components. imagine having a sick alien poster or glowing wizard and dragon design on your pc.
>>78823330Do you enjoy being a retarded contrarian?
>>78823330imagine this shit and then having your floor covered with that blacklight carpet they had at lazer tag places. oh hell yeah, it's time to Game.
>>78822292I mean the hot meme in the '90s was multicolor boards and cold cathode tubes. If RGB tech existed at that point in time people'd be all over it at the lan scene. Don't kid yourself.
>>78822456>>78823330>>78823397/thread. Fantastic case lighting has been part of PC modding for a while now so let's not sit here and cringily pretend that it's a recent fad.
>>78823345>Do you enjoy being a retarded contrarian?ironic coming from the guy that gets mad that other people enjoy colored lights. >>78823397modern RGB components would look so good in those all-acrylic pc cases they sold in the early 2000s.
>>78822456It used to be unique. Case mods back then took a beige box and made it something totally different. Now it's a bunch of premade products slapped together.It's the difference between an italian white marble mansion and a saudi white marble mansion. Same thing but very different.
>>78822292I used to think cold cathodes and LED case mods were cool 20 years ago, as a teen. I also had a blacklight. I still have a blacklight, but only in my moth-zapper.
>>78825383>it was ok because it was MY secret club
>>78822292I just want beige to make a comeback. I fucking wish I didn't throw out my old ass computer when I was 18. I would be using that case to this day
>>78822292As a guy in his twenties I spent dozens of hours in my dark room as a teenager. Back then I also liked colorful setups, but nowadays I can`t find the beauty in these things. Without natural light and plants I can't imagine my room nowadays.
>>78822292Also who are these giraffes who enjoy fucking up their neck looking up at a monitor like that?
>>78825804Its very clear he wasnt saying it was more elite/exclusive, he was saying one is art, and the other is kitsch - a commercial product. Don't conflate art with elitism.
It’s funny how these threads are obviously just poors huddling in their attic bedrooms and student hovels with 15 year old Thinkpads and ancient PCs lashing out in barely concealed envy.
>>78825990It wasn't "art", it was a craft because it was inaccessible to most and required greater effort to install and operate. That doesn't mean that it looked better than what we have today. Unified lighting solutions such as AURA, iCue and the sort have opened up a field of endless possibility and that is a good thing.Much of the stuff back then was fantastically tacky, but in a good way. The only thing about it that worth being nostalgic about is that it was new and as a consequence, full of creativity and experimentation.
Nothing personal, zoomers.
>>78825993Tech zoomerphobia is one of the lowest IQ parts of /g/ culture. I hope that one day the luddites on the board will realize that obsolescence doesn't make a particular technology superior.
>>78822292The person who put it together.
>>78826059>Much of the stuff back then was fantastically tacky, but in a good way.That's kind of the essence of it. I also wish there were more people putting computers in household items again, the old mini-itx website has a great deal of old projects using Via Nano boards. One of my favourites is the WinXP PC in the WinXP Pro carton box.
>>78822292Pic related.not buying a razr fucking blade.
>>78822292It looks awful, I really don't understand the appeal. Especially if it's constantly changing, that would really irritate me. I am pretty minimalist my my computers though and don't like case windows.
>>78826083>This inside a white H510Oh jesus
>>78822292It's just to occasionally take photos like this. Most of the time they are off or set to cool/warm white.
>>78822292Cyberpunk aesthetic PCs have been symbolized by glowing lights since the 80s
>>78822292>Designed to sell, not designed to be usedApply that to almost all thing you see.
>not liking pink and blue color comboDIE YOU CIS NORMIE
>it's a /g/ thinks RGB and mood-lighting were magically invented in the last decade
its a simple formula:the more you want to cut your own dick off the more lights you want on your computer.
>>78826059>It wasn't "art", it was a craftCrafts are art forms. Other than that, i mostly agree. My point was merely that it's far more commercialized and cookie-cutter now, which takes away a redeeming aspect of it - as you say, the craft and experimentation.I still think my cold cathodes were pretty lame, but who cares. If i was 15 now, i'd probably think rgb was cool, but i wouldnt be learning how to dremel or spray paint.
