Why have an external strip tho when it can be built into it? Or in addition? It's ok not to like or use them but RGB definitely seems to be the theme for 2016 from pretty much all manufacturers.

Cause external strips are better IMO as i have said i think LED when there built into like a GPU block CPU Block & Motherboards it just looks stupid to me.

Plus you can never really get it to match when there built into thins cause there going to be a different colour where the LED strip will match why buy a GPU or CPU block just to light up one item where you buy a LED strip and it will light everything up.

Not everyone has to share that opinion. Some people may prefer it for opposite reasons. Just like some people prefer wireless over wired. It's preference

Must admit I do like the (XSPC??) Acrylic blocks when they're lit up with the white LEDs. RGB would just be the next logical step.
LED strips would just be another device to power and run and purchase. No reason why you can't do both. Or choose not to do either.

Choice is a good thing.
