Thread Starter 
Can anyone direct me to a good case lighting tutorial? i have a corsair 650d and i wanted to put lights inside because.... it is a waste to have a window panel and not show off the insides any tutorial/help/tips is appreciated.

1. Buy 15" cathodes
2. Install cathodes with zip ties. Don't use the velcro they give you.
3. Enjoy

Really, though, just buy some CCFLs and hook em up.

Tutorials i'm not so good at finding, But if you havent pulled the trigger yet and like leds over cold cathode, the Nzxt led strips are pretty awesome. 3 levels of brightness, on/off, and pretty easy to get exactly the lighting you want. The adhesive on the mounting things could be better...

Exactly what I was going to say, I have ordered about 7m of those strips and never regretted 1cm of it, check some of this out:



My main case with a 1m strip on the inside of the window like so:



Some green ones I have for my white case:




Blue ones on my DVD rack:






So yea... they're really good
