Do You Even RGB, bro?
Given that we are currently in an RGB craze, it pretty much goes without saying that you are able to find just about anything to add some of the craze to your non-RGB components without much effort. SilverStone have sent us a their RGB fan grill that comes in both 120 and 140mm varieties. The name isn’t necessarily targeted at the gaming segment as it doesn’t blast 1337GAMING1!11!1 in your face, which makes for a nice change. It is literally called what it is – the 120mm RGB fan grille. Let’s check it out…

Raven Revolutionizes Airflow
If you build a custom water cooled PC, airflow isn’t a huge concern. As long as you have enough radiators, chances are your components will stay nice and cool.

Certain builders enjoy fancy lighting, but prefer not to have extra software programs running in the taskbar. SilverStone is thankfully coming to the rescue with the LSB02 RGB and Fan Controller. We’ll see if the lighting control lives up to software based ones, but first a statement from SilverStone. Continue reading “SilverStone LSB02 RGB & Fan Controller Review”
