Gigabyte went full spectrum RGB at this years Computex, announcing an entire gamut of equipment with dancing colourful lights.  The first of these are are the four piece AORUS RGB 16GB DDR4-3200MHz memory kit, which ships with two 8GB DIMMs and a pair of dummies.

The dummies, as you are no doubt asking yourself, are to let you populate all four DIMM slots and yet keep the price down to ~$230.   The dummies are not dim, they have the same lighting features as the DIMMs do, making the rave in your case even more impressive.

The Aorus M5 and M3 mice also give off illumination which will satisfy dedicated RGB enthusiasts, especially when paired with the Aorus P7 RGB mousemat.

The M5 contains a Pixart 3398 optical sensor, capable of up to 16,000 DPI as well as removable weights which let you pick your preferred heft, at least between 18g to 130.5g.  The M3 uses a Pixart 3988 sensor, which tops out at 6400 SPI which is honestly quite sufficient for the vast majority of users.  The two mice are both able to function while slightly lifted about a surface and can produce 16.7 million hues with their RGBs.

Now that the inside and outside of your computer as well as the mouse and its mat are glowing away in glorious technicolour, you should not leave yourself out of the show.  Strap on the Aorus H5 headset and become part of the show as you sync your ears with the patterns produced by your other peripherals.  As with the other components the H5 is not just eye candy, the 50mm beryllium magnets in the headset will deliver your ear candy as well. 

Keep an eye out for more from Gigabyte and Aorus.

RGB "dummy" DIMMs - the latest sign that PC component makers have lost their freakin' minds! What's next, fake RGB video cards, for that "serious gamer" SLI/Xfire look? Fake RGB AIO water coolers to fill up all your empty fan mounts? We already have fake fans, that don't blow air, but are just 120mm RGB light rings. Soon somebody will release an entire fake PC, that doesn't do any computing, just has fake motherboard, fake 50-watt PSU (to power the LEDs), etc, and places to mount all your fake RGB crap. After all, it's all about the rainbow light show anyway, so the fake PC will still give you "bragging rights", and you can afford to put them all over your house, for that super-nerd aesthetic. Yesterday I ran across RGB thumbscrews from Bitspower, 24 pin RGB wire extensions, now these fake RGB DIMMs - where will it end? If civilization is ending, and mankind is in decline, at least we'll go out with "flying colors".

Now we have RGB phone in form of Asus ROG phone. There is nothing else left to put RGB and jack up the prices.

Hi, Gigabyte tech support?  Someone gave me a great deal on a pair of your DIMMs but I can't get them to POST!

If civilization is ending, and mankind is in decline, at least we'll go out with "flying colors".

...and will promptly be replaced by a dummy fake civilization featuring even more, unheard-of RGB blinkenlight effects...

Well now I know that I'm building my next computer to hide in shame behind my desk and also a fake RGB light show PC to put on display. I won't have to have any ugly wires because it won't be connected to anything!

You really are a genius mate.

Seen a recent review of a RGB Motherboard power cable , It seems nothing is off the table these days. Why not a glowing AC power cord oh boy I'm sure that's next. Its too bad the chassis manufacturing Industry has not added flexible OLED wrap to the outer enclosure Imagine the possibilities.
