Blue,red or white Catodes/LED?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Case is HAF-X
This led fans megaflow front,side,2x top in Red led
one Rear Enermax apollish led fan (possible switch blue,red,green)
One Enermax T.B trio vegas Red fan on Silver arrow

At first I though using All red lights
so i already bought Red Revoltec cathodes some months ago:


But now i am thinking if it Be Red overkill cause
all the fans glow red... except for the rear enermax apollish fan i can turn red, blue or green

Also Red revoltec catodes are more like Orange right?....

Will it look better if i buy some blue cathodes and place
one on top and one on side that with the fans will be a bit blue/red ish..


Or should i get a White NZXT LED cable instead of catodes:


Is nice look like White stars
ok the ones on the photo are blue
illustrate where to them


theese are white so light be more like this:


If i go for White Led cable instead of catodes
i could however also use the red catodes i already got....

What last longest Cathodes or light cables ?

So my options

1. Keep and use the pair of Revoltec red cathodes
2. Buy and use Blue cathodes instead
3. buy and Use White led Cable 2 meter of white Led cable
4. Use white led cable 2 meter + red cathodes also

What do you think will look best in HAF-X together with the red led fans
Red catodes , Blue catodes or white led cable ?

owning a haf X, i personaly dont think i like the idea of a blue case it is over used in the Case world... i think that it looks best in red.. the white LED strips would give it a cool twist thought, but i guess, it also matters on what you have inside your case? colours ect? maybe a picture of inside your case atm for encuragement?

Yea however the blue and red mix look nice also
but i mosly thinking about the White Led strips
looks like smale white stars all around make it more futuristic somehow...

I have not mounted it yet
but this things will be noted most from the side window:
-red/black asrocks fatal1ty P67 mobo
- Black Asus Xonar Essence sound card with gold lion on
- Silver colored silver arrow heatsink with one Ty-140 + 1 enermax Trio vegas in red led
- Accelero extreme plus VGA after market fan black with white fans on the GTX580
- Red memory G.skill Ripjaws X

so as you can see lot of Red stuff inside
so maybe a white Led strip would have done good

as too much red would not make the mobo look so good...
and there is already a bunch of red led fans

i guess i would need the 2 meter for haf-x right?
cause 1 meter be too little?

Now...having white led strip need to figure out if it be too bright
for night light in pc having it on while sleep...

i dont mind the red led fans they relax me
but the white led strip...but led strips usualy not so bright as cathodes right?

I just canceled the Order of the white light strips
It seem Red and white colors will give a Weird combination
Means Red cathodes+ white lights strips is No good idea....

As for using White led strips with Red fans... i will unsure... i talked with 2 people trying it and the combination was weird the white light overpowered the red....

I might just go for NZXT red led strips and use that instead of the Red cathodes...
it look better that way...

sure wont look so white stars...as i expected but thats ok....

also from the photos i seen the blue led strips is what look best
but Blue led strips is sold out....in the store i get it

ok so i guess i just go with a 2m NZXT Red led strips

I just hope it wont be too much red and it will be boring after a year or so.
