Best Way to Add Purple?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a HAF 912 in a few days and I plan on painting the interior black. I also want to add some purple to the case too.. I'm wondering what the best way to do that is?

I'm considering LED strips or cold cathode tubes, however it's hard to find purple in these.. do the UV ones really look purple or do the pictures just make it seem like that?

Anything else I could accent? Wire sleeves?

Thanks!

EDIT: And by purple, I mean like dark purple (K-State purple, for example)

You could sleeve or change the ends on your molex, 24 pin, etc. to purple (lots of places sell them). You could also tape off parts and paint in some accents. Tons of choices. I love colour in my cases.

UV LEDs and CCFLs don't really emit much visible light; they just give off a slight violet glow since the light spectrum used is just on the boarder between visible violet and ultraviolet light.

You might find some UV purple sleeving or something as well. I know you can get the psu connectors in uv plastic, but not 100% sure about sleeving.

These look really good: XIGMATEK Cooling System Crystal Series CLF-F1455 140mm Purple LED Case Fan

$2.99 ea. after mir.


They come is other sizes as well, but for $3, can't go wrong.

These paired up with some strategically painted/sleeved purple will def. look good

FTW PC just got purple paracord sleeving in stock. You just reminded me that I hadn't had time until just now to add it.

Per my experience, UV LEDs/CCFLs tend to be more purple than having UV properties.

QFT.

UV CCFLs look like purple sticks, if you use shiny aluminum foil you can possibly diffuse light from UV LEDs to create more of purple glow. Any other lighting usually easily covers it up however, so you would have to go for full purple and nothing else.
