What happens if you want all of the RGB? Or as Barry calls it -- just another day at the office.

Watch as he brings together Corsair's assorted RGB components -- from the new H150i PRO CPU Cooler, to the LL (light loop) fans, and even the Vengeance RGB memory -- and displays them in the the 4-sided tempered glass showcase that is the Crystal 570X RGB case.
