Question about lighting and UVs.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I plan to set up a WC system on my HAF X and am looking to use UV purple tubing. I'll probably set up four 12'' UV Cold Cathodes.
I also planned to buy 120mm green led fans to go with it. Three will mount under the rad, one exhaust to the left and then the 200mm door fan.
Do you think the five green led fans will overpower the four UV cathodes from highlighting the tubing?
I was really hoping for a green/purple theme.

You should be fine. If you are using four 12" tubes, that should be more than enough to accent the tubes well.

Hmm, alright.
I just seem to see a fair amount of people who say the LEDs will block out the UV cathodes. Idk how many people actually would plan to use four of them, though. Reason for me asking.
I guess I'll just wing it and try it out. I guess the worst that happens is they don't work and I end up with purple tubing and just a green LED case. lol
Well, that and wasted money on the fans/cathodes. lol

If anyone else has any experience with UV cathodes and LED fan set ups, please speak up. It won't be for about another week till I start buying all the parts and build it.

So, I found these today and was curious if anyone has used them at all or know how "bright" they are?
