Have 2 strips of the NZXT LEDs, both 2m long. Maybe I just don't got them placed right... Ran them along the edge of the inside where window is, then other from window across bottom where ssd cage is and up side of of HDD cage area to top and around.. just seemed like cathodes would light case up better than the LEDs. Maybe I just need different led brand or to reroute.. any ideas would be appreciated, first build so kinda wanna make it look good.


Edit: where do you get those blue strips that citizen Joe has on outside of case? Im tempted to steal his XD wanted to go blue but Idk how to solder so stuck with a red theme. Which is ok lol.

I've had those junk NZXT's before, they lasted about 6 months. Trust me Modelers is where it's at. Check my review in my sig. Here is a video on how to solder them.

May try them out... Soldering can't be too hard for a beginner.. I hope lol. It's not possible to have them on a on/off switch is it? And I'm not sure how much I would need... Have windowed panel and kinda like how the guy did his top in red, his front is a bit too much though lol. What are those wires called that the guy did on front in green? And the other guy who did it in blue? Or any clue on the pricing

Yes trust me the modelers brand is far brighter, no transformer pack, less power draw and more even crisp light.

I did the red and was the original person to do the top and front of the trooper, you don't have to soldier there is a way to use the clip on connection that he sells as well. The front isnt super bright just the camera exposure length made it look like that. It's a even glow on the top and front. I have some red strips left over from mine if anyone is interested. I think I even have 2 non solder clips.

You can put them on stock LED switch, in fact I have a small 4 inch strip in mine right now running on the switch. Makes for a nice soft red glow. I also like running them off the MB fan header, you can have them get brighter as the CPU heats up thumb.gif If you are just wanting to do the inside, 2-3 ft will be more than enough depending on how bright you want it. You need about a yard for the top panel.
