LED Sleeved Cable

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Wondering what size I should get to fully go around, a 1m or a 2m?

My case is the 690 II Advanced nVidia.

For a mid tower case you definitely want to go with the 2m.

I have the same LED strip in blue for my 650D and there's just enough. It also depends on how you want to light your case up. I want to try backlighting the motherboard, but haven't gotten around to it.

The LEDs start pretty close to the board so I covered the first 2 with a small piece of black velcro wrap to hide them.

Just my 2c worth...hope it helps,

Rich

Here'e the video that helped me decide to get these LEDs.

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQbszBe5_z0"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQbszBe5_z0[/ame]


It's not a very good quality video, but it gets the point across. This guy's a member here and modded it to put a switch on the front of his case. There's a couple of other videos with different colors (I didn't see green though).

I don't know about the green, but the blue matches the CoolerMaster R4 blue LEDs pretty well.

The case is pretty good hammy I just got it last week, and it has great cable management and I like the mesh in the front and all around.

The PCI slots in the back are ventilated which is nice and the power supply zone in the bottom has a dust filter for you as well. Rubber feet at the bottom. You will like it.

If you want more pics look at the CM 690 II Advanced for an idea. I can post pics if you'd like to see.
