Among the things that you don't need, Corsair's iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Towers stand tall, quite literally. Despite the seeming abundance of RGB-laden hardware – from cases and peripherals to wall panels – PC hardware makers are still looking for new ways to let you add more RGB LEDs to your setup. You can't really blame them – people really do love their RGB lights. 

The iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Tower stands at 422mm tall, featuring 46 LEDs that can be customised using Corsair's iCUE ecosystem and synced with other Corsair products. There are 11 preset lighting profiles, and you can also choose to sync the effects to the action on screen or in games. 

According to Corsair, the LEDs are housed in a sturdy, light-diffusing casing that softens and blends the light for a continuous and smooth effect, so you can't make out the individual LEDs in the tower. This means you could potentially have what looks like a lightsaber standing on your desk, complete with an illuminated base. 

Corsair's towers actually do look pretty good, and the vertical light bar can be detached from the stand and mounted backward as well, in case you prefer more subtle illumination of your desk. There's also a removable headset holder that snaps onto the top, in case you need to hang your headset on it. 

The iCUE LT100 Smart Lighting Tower is sold as a starter kit comprising two units, including one base unit and one expansion unit. You can add two more towers for a total of four, and the base unit connects to your PC using a micro-USB to USB-A cable. It also looks like you can daisy chain the units together, so they don't each require their own power adapter.

The starter kit will cost you US$129.99, while each expansion unit costs US$59.99.
