Not everything in life is clear-cut. Take LED lighting in your PC for instance; some people love the look of colorful bulbs, while the same effect makes others want to claw their eyes out with a molex tool. If you fall into the former camp, NZXT’s new “Hue” LED controller might just be up your alley. It’s a premade lighting solution that seems flexible enough to satisfy DIYers who want custom rave club-like effects without worrying about inverters and grounding wires.
The controller itself slips into a 5.25-inch drive bay and sports three controls, which let you manually tweak the RGB color settings, brightness and pulse speed of the unit’s LED lights. Fading, flashing, color changing — it’s all there. The lighting itself comes in the form of a 2 meter-long sleeve with 24 LEDs peppered throughout; it’s nice and bendy, so you’re able to snake the lights through your rig any way you see fit.
NZXT’s $33 Hue controller uses a SATA connection and is already available; you can find more information on NZXT’s website.
