i CANT STAND how most cathodes look and the UV is no exception. a few guys make it look good, but for the most part i think it just makes things look cheap...

and i dont want to put any kind of colored coolants in as they tend to clog up blocks if you dont clean them out regularly. that and they also tend to cheapen things a bit imo....

im going to use minimal lighting in this project. probably just some from under the mobo tray and some LEDs shooting down from the top and bottom

Well they do have UV LEDs if you change your mind about the dye.

These

And I agree with you with the cathodes, I'd have to hide them somewhere.. like right under the window of the side panel so you couldn't see them.. i think the fixtures are uuuugly

that and the color rarely is the color its suposta be. i have seen more pink and orange cathodes than red.. and its like that for just about every color i have seen.


ill stick with a couple thought out LEDs for direct lighting and a couple strips for ambient effects

for the ambient lights im going to be using white lights. the fans are green and the rez will probably get 1 or 2 green ones as im liking that idea more the more i think about it.

how ever the water will be clear. that is decided.

my mother board black and red though. not sure how i feel about that.... (cross hair 4 formula)
