I really like how aggressive and cool the RGB LEDs make the motherboard look. You can, of course, change the light color, but default is the color red.
The heat sinks have built in RGB LEDs, and they diffuse light through the use of spacing and over-hanging plastic and metal. I really love the dragon, it lights up beautifully, and you will probably not want to put in a second GPU that blocks the PCH heat sink's dragon.
