Lighting Solutions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What's up guys, I'm looking for a white light solution.

I have an 800D and I would like to show off the internals, I'll have a 480 radiator mounted at the top so I would like to throw something in between the spaces so the light itself isn't shown but it provides a good spread of light over all of my components. I don't want to see any wires from these lights either, so cathodes and inverters are somewhat out of the question unless they've made a nice LONG cable that doesn't hinder the light in he cathode (last I remember every time you used a cathode extension the light wouldn't be as bright).

I'd appreciate any help on the matter, thanks a lot!

Do those provide a nice spread of light across the components? Is there a way to wire them to a 4 pin connector and just throw them in the back, I don't want to throw it in one of my PCI slots.

Hey, I recently purchased this kit and can say that it does give a really even spread of light if you install it correctly. You need to hide the actual strip of leds behind the walls of your case if you don't want to see bright dots of light along your case. Also you need to kind of aim the leds at your components so you get nice even lighting. As for the PCI thing, you need to plug the strip into it so it can manage the voltages safely for your leds. With an 800D I'm sure you could find a place to cram the PCI thing somewhere though.

i bought 3 adhesive led strips from ebay 2$ each:
http://cgi.ebay.com/White-15-LED-SMD-Waterproof-Car-Light-Flexible-Strip-/270739639155?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f0957 0b7
and glued 2 near the sides of the window facing into the case and one on top check how this looks:









on picture it looks blue but its actually white, this led strips exist in many colors and it works from 12v.
