ty icandy giggle; giggle;

also there actually aren't any leds built into the case, i temporarily illuminated it with an led flashlight for purely photogenic reasons (otherwise the window is too reflective to get a clear shot of the inside)

and the window itself is of pretty much no use to me anyway as the tower's permanent spot is an inch to the right of my desk lol sillydood;

i pulled it out again just to take that picture

[spoiler=also, i was curious]



looks pretty neat but oh boyo would that be insanely distracting at night lol, and i'm sure the novelty would wear of pretty quickly

so no leds for me [/spoiler]

tfw two days after i had already ordered my measly 8gb 2400mhz ram for $30, i found 16gb of 3000mhz for $55 smithicide;

i have space for a second module so i can always add another should i find myself needing it (right now it hasn't been constraining me at all but i also haven't really experimented with gaming yet lol), but my gourd do i regret not waiting a few days before ordering lol

also yeah i probably could have spent less on a motherboard, but there are very few options with wifi/bluetooth in the <$99 range and i'd also be limited to 2133mhz memory (i have yet to decide whether those features are worth the extra ~$50, i could very well have bought cheap external bluetooth and wifi adapters and ram frequency is apparently rarely a bottleneck)

T...turning off a PC? befuddlement

it'd still be an issue if i were playing a game or a movie or smth at night, or if for some reason i found myself needing to keep my pc on overnight, unless i could find case leds with easily accessible external controls

but really i'm just not interested enough in having an illuminated case to justify the extra expense lol, in order to even appreciate them i'd have to move the entire tower to some inconvenient location

that didn't stop me. I'm not sure that my cables were manageable though.

yeah my case has a window and both the fans it came with have blue leds on them, but what gets really annoying is the front led, especially when I put it in sleep mode and it flashes.
