Have you heard? There is this wonderful invention called a switch. It would allow you to either turn off the LEDs or reroute the power around them, or a number of other things :-) (sorry if that sounded mean...it wasn't meant to be....just teasing you know )

i have developped the switch, so i can turn off the leds. wait, blue!!!??? ahhhhhhhh. all i have is red. *adds uv leds and blue ones to shopping list* on the opposit side, i can add something..... maybe a fan...... with leds.......no, not good enough.... how about a fan with plexiglass painted highlights.... yeah, that sounds better ...... rework the bezel, duh... hmm, the lower bezel has some stupid HDD ventilation slits .... what can i do with the front .... i can add plexiglass accents to the front around the bezel ...but what about the lower front. .. maybe add the gauges there? the bottom line is, i will have a nicer pc than you, its just a matter of time

If you have a cheap computer it might, but I haven't noticed a change at all. It should just put some more strain on your graphics card, but not a lot. When going above two monitors you need extra graphics cards, but mostly for the extra ports instead of extra power.

Aar000n3y (author)lord.lothar2008-06-04

Thanks. It's just a cheap Dynex (never even heard of them before I bought it... haha) keyboard I bought for my system when I bought all of it and was out of money. Although it is rather nice for about $10. It has a lot of hot keys for functions like music playing, opening up a My Computer screen, internet browsing, volume, etc.
