    I like LEDs when they are used for a reason, like showing off the prize component of the build and not simply to light the case up like Times Square.

    i got black/blue/silver/white/red all mixed for my peripherals already
    only visible led is front 200mm fan being red which isn't bothersome. (rest is blocked from LoS underneath desk anyway)
    titan is barely visible with it's green glow through my noctua side fan + dust filter. (yes lesson learned im getting a window in my next case )

    I got my new hard drive in, I am checking disk errors and while I am doiing that I am defraging another, after I am done with errors I will derag it( i don't think defraging a new drive would hurt?) then ill test its usb 3.0 speeds.

    Why would you defrag a drive without any data on it?

    I'm not sure if this is a serious question or not but since most people still use mechanical drives you should make sure the data is not fragmented for optimal performance.

    How is a brand new drive going to be fragmented?

    I haven't been able to watch Linus' videos for months now, due to the caption-spamming and now the sponsoring.
    I'd rather look at paint drying.

    Never said anything about the brand new drive being fragmented, that was the same question I asked to start with.

    Considering how much of a fanboy he is for nvidia, it's hardly exclusive sponsoring..

    FYI windows automatically defrags hard drives, it's done that since vista, you should never have to defrag a drive on a vista or newer pc, this is also one of the biggest reasons you should not shut your computer off when not in use, just let it idle, it will self optimize

    i believe that would be the essence of being non-biased

    If you are going to lose your income if you don't fairly represent the sponsors, and are sponsored by all the big names, then that would force you to be neutral and unbiased. Much better for your viewers and credibility than being sponsored by only one side, and having to pander to that sponsor.

    You have to tell Windows 7 not to defrag a disc.
