Fuck, I love LEDs.
They're so pretty.
Let's be a little autistic together in this thread.

Nixie tubes!

LEDs are fine but nothing beats that orange glow of neon.

I love the colors of the rainbow. Red, yellow, green, green, blue, and white.

Those are neat but the fanbase around them is DISGUSTING.

Comparable to the snakeoil audio freaks and boomer corvette enthusiasts.

Transistors

Because after a CE degree you're all like "holy fuck you can build an entire CPU out of these fuckers", except RAM...

I like batteries that you can test without putting em in a device

Its not really a part, but for the same reasons as y'all like parts, I appreciate coil whine. Because of something a babysitter said when I was young, I've always thought of coil whine as a electronic device breathing.

Switches that actually have some travel distance and actuate with a satisfying *CLUNK*.

gah orange led fans are a nightmare to find.
trying to do a black/Orange build
>>
>>52259212
I'd just go with orange, black or clear fans and orange LED strips instead, that's probably your best bet.
>>
>>52259212
Then get neon lamps instead of LEDs and run them straight from the mains.
>>
>>52259296
>>52259300
i have a black case just trying to deck it out with fans. that mobos are pretty much only red leds kinda made this a headache
>>
>>52259371
Well RGB lighting on motherboards is just starting to pick up...
>>
>>52259406
im quite surprised at that.
i figured they would have done that long ago since leds have been around since the first home pc.
>>
>>52258362
>the fanbase around them is DISGUSTING.
And jack the prices up on what are essentially interesting oddities. What is out there is surplus stock of an outdated technology. It should be pretty cheap stuff, but instead were seeking comic book collector pricing.
>>
>>52257965
fuck yeah
>>
>>52259484
Especially now that they are so efficient. A small SMD part can easily match the light output of a standard 5mm LED from a few years ago.
>>
gfto everybody,

LED is MY waifu.

Came here to say that. Dekatrons are also pretty interesting, although people generally make pointless spinners out of them rather than driving them in more interesting ways.
Here's using one as the seconds counter on a nixie tube clock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ix7sjQ0FRpU

Why is orange in fashion right now? I've been trying to find some orange parts on Taobao for a while now and everything's sold out. Most of the orange keycaps are overpriced right now as well. Wtf happened that made orange so popular?
>>
>>52264762
are there any companies that make small batches of nixie tubes for replacements?
I would imagine they probably wouldn't have the biggest market but hobbyists are always looking for tubes

You're actually the opposite of the wise man you're trying so hard to emulate.
I seriously hope (for you) you're just shitposting.

>>52258729
This.
Best are those videos where people build CPUs off from relays and your hear them clicking when they are working... Just awesome

Microswitches. Fuck I love pushing a good button

Wait, if red LEDs make your computer go faster what do orange ones do?
>>
>>52267163
make it smell fruity

I gotta say it dude

I fucking love LEDs too. Trying to build a nice lookin PC atm, got an h440 coming in the mail and a white LED fan. That back lighting gets me rock solid. Gonna try getting a nice black and subtly red MSI board and mmmf

I like tiny photo-diodes when they are put in arrays a few thousand elements on each side.

When I was a kid I could spend a lot of time just staring at a large circuit board like a motherboard.

I would imagine it being like a city with powerplants and other buildings, roads, houses.

Just get regular LED fans and swap the LEDs out

Condensator is the best, I can charge it and shock random people. They all think I have superpowers

>>52258269
Why the fuck are they so expensive?
>>
>>52270016
I think they're not being manufactured anymore. There are just some remaining stockpiles from the soviet union.
