RGB fans, rejoice: Corsair's new Capellix LED technology is about to change everything

RGB lighting on gaming PCs is about to get a whole lot brighter and a whole lot more efficient thanks to Corsair’s new Capellix LED technology, which promises to be 60 percent brighter while using 40 percent less power.
