What's with rgb on everything these days? Surely it adds cost, and even if you have a glass side panel, do you really want to look at your case all the time? I love my pc and spent loads of time and thought picking each part but I don't really care what they look like as long as they perform. I just honestly don't get the rgb craze and don't think it'll last - could be wrong though

You're probably right. It's my first build so I really wanted it to look pretty, glass panel etc. The trouble is the enthusiasts, reviewers online all have fancy wancy cases and they look so good. :) I want one like them.

Adds cost?

This is a cooler that costs £100 more than just about anyone needs to spend to get something good. Nobody buying this sort of kit is remotely interested in value for money.

Like any fashion both RGB LEDs and closed loop coolers will be replaced by something else when they become uncool.

If you look at sensible £10-20 coolers you'll find very few of them have RGB lighting.

Clearly you have never heard of enthusiast or overclocking. Sone people just want to have nice rigs or perhaps overclock their CPU's. Is that so bad because this cooler doesnt appeal to you or is too expensive?

No luck needed, it'll work just fine.

I couldn't see anyone testing with the 6700K yet, but look at Techpowerup's test of the H9i on the 4770k for example:
https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/CRYORIG/M9i/6.html

Overclocked to 4.2Ghz and 1.2V it was a good 20°C off maximum temperature in a typical full load and didn't even throttle under artificial stress tests.

Spending the extra £100 on this sort of cooler might get you an extra couple of hundred megahertz but no noticeable difference.

Feeling a bit guilty? I said nothing about buying this sort of thing being bad. Of course it's not bad, no more than spending money on any other hobby.

I'm just saying that it's now a hobbyist market where stuff is bought because it's interesting, instead of the situation a decade or two ago where components were primarily bought because they provided a noticeable improvement to your everyday computer experience.

I remember the last time lightshows were popular, with acyclic cases and cold cathode tubes. Back then it was a far smaller proportion of the desktop market.

if your looking at cooling on its own i find the evo hyper great pricewise i56600k running at 4.6 at a max 68 degrees

Like most things it depends on your setup. If you've got a tiny case and a very warm GPU (like I have) you'll have more luck with a AIO watercooling setup like this, since you push all the heat from your CPU directly out of your case instead of recirculating it.

Aesthetics. It's like asking why you would bother with leather interiors on a car, when clearly you're going to regret that decision when the weather gets decidedly warm.

My 6700k is o/c to 4.5 ghz ( not really tried higher) and the most I get temp wise all day playing bf1 is 75 degrees using an Arctic Freezer 13, cost about £20 when I got it.
It does help though that I have a large Fractal R4 case to help with airflow though.
I was tempted with this sort of cooling and maybe next time I will. Heat added though as this is a good deal for those that want water cooling.

There's many reasons why someone would go with an aio over standard air. Even in the link you provided, the air cooler performed really well but under load the AIOs were about 10 degrees colder under load, which is a huge difference
Aesthetics is another one, even disregarding the rgb the AIO provides (personally) a cleaner looking build.
(btw I have a 212 evo)

75 degrees while playing BF1 the game that is not really cpu demanding. Here I am sitting on my noctua playing bf1 with temps around 60 and thinking that seems high. Cant even imagine the noise and heat that Arctic cooler is making when cpu runs at 100%. Jet engine like?

BF1 is very cpu intensive and lots of people are struggling with that on the forums. It doesn't make my 6700k 100% but certainly makes it work and that's why I chose the r4 case, it's all very quiet with the right fan settings to be honest.
As for heat like I say it's 75 degrees max which is nothing really.

Some people love the look of their components, having them change colours depending on how they are feeling that day is a great personalization tool, I look into my computer case every day and just love the look of it, I also have quite a lot of RGB components like the case, my keyboard, headphones, desk RGB strips and mouse. It's all down to personal preference.

Lighting isn't anything new, it's just the in thing atm, I bought a strix card and it is nice to have it change colour based on heat, I wouldn't spend a ridiculous amount on lighting but it can be nice to tie in your components at a marginal cost.

interesting...
when I'm playing a game, I'm looking at the screen not at the card in my case. Wouldn't an on-screen indicator (something small, top right) be much more cost effective and simple (not to mention less likely to fail)?

I like the NZXT coolers - I have 2 of the smaller, older setups and they seem to be well made. I find the CAM software very useful as it not only monitors the system but also implements basic overclocking. This minimizes the amount of software that I run and that appeals.

Good price, I would point out that its available on Amazon prime for £1 more (once you factor delivery in)

For me, RGB computer parts are rather pointless since I don't like windowed cases and never look inside after I've built the PC. However I think for peripherals they are a god send.

I have a Corsair k70 keyboard, which has red LED's only, and a razer mamba mouse, which by default is green.
But thanks to the RGB of the mouse I can have both in red!

Isn't going to be for everyone, but I never specifically buy a product for RGB, it's definitely nice to have though.

Unless you are a serious (or wanna be serious) overclocker these units are completely overkill.
