Somewhere along the way, PC building went from simply assembling parts to becoming a form of expression. When aesthetics gained importance, we started to see features that included tempered glass, sleeved cables and of course, RGB. When putting RGB into your build, it’s easy to select components that are not compatible and challenging to achieve a unified look. NZXT hopes to solve that problem with its new HUE 2 line of products. The HUE 2 ecosystem consists of many different accessories such as fans, LED strips and cable combs, which all work together harmoniously using NZXT’s CAM software. At the heart of this ecosystem is the NZXT HUE 2 RGB Controller, which you can connect up to 160 LEDs worth of HUE 2 accessories across 4 different channels. NZXT has made it easy to jump into HUE 2 by offering HUE 2 RGB Lighting Kits priced at $74.99 and Aer RGB 2 Start Kits priced at $109.99.
We would like to thanks NZXT for providing us with an HUE 2 RGB Lighting Kit and AER RGB 2 fans for review.
