Anyone have any pics of the NZXT hue in their case?

You need about a yard for the top panel.


Ill have to take pics when I get home Friday of how I have my NZXT LEDs ran. May just send both back to newegg for a refund if possible, and get modelers since you said I can wire them to the stock on/off switch. Would the switch power them or how would they need to he wired? I have no experience but willing to learn tongue.gif and guess ill have to buy some cheap fans to steal wires from them too? And the wire I was talking about I think they said its EL wire? Or something like that


Edit: have a pic back on page 470 and looking at it vs others... It looks like complete crap lol

honestly if you don't have any wiring experience this isn't the best place to learn, you could fry your whole computer by connecting the wrong wire.

If that's true then I may just try cold cathodes.... Think they'd light up better than those NZXT LEDs. Has to be some where to hide the wiring.. bunch of room where toolbox goes or is it a pain wiring those too?


Edit: how good are the bitfenix alchemy LEDs? Those strips look like they'd be a lot better.

dont waste your money on any LED except for modelers brand, I have looked at them all and I have been into lighting my whole life and nothing will compare to the double LED's.

What color are you looking into getting?
post #4776 of 12421
Red. Since I'm definitely not trying to change the LEDs on the power/controller buttons.

You're not going to fry your PC connecting them to your LED switch. It's positive and negative, this LED tape will not run if you have the power backwards. I'll have to look to see what wire is pos and neg on the case's switch. The tricky part is connecting to the switch, I had these open fan headers that I used, but most are not open like I have. The other way would be cutting the connector off and soldering the wires together.

The Scout 2 is here! Much like it's predecessor, it is uniquely tuned to getting your game on wherever and whenever. This time around, we focused on harnessing the look and feel of futuristic weaponry and focusing on user choice. This manifested in minimizing the basic case fans provided since many of our DIY users reported that they often switch their case fans out for something more appropriate to their specific setup or theme. We hope that you enjoy the ability to put up to 9 fans and fit just about any hardware in there while you visit LANs all over.


As promised, I have put together a giveaway for our loyal Scout 2 fans here on the CM Storm Scout / Scout 2 Club. It will run from today until 10/9/12 at 12pm PST.

It's very simple. Just enter your Serial Number and upload a picture of it!

I really look forward to seeing who has the oldest original Scout case!

Edit: The serial number is located on the rear of the chassis near the expansion slots.

its not about wiring the strips incorrectly if he accidentally wires 12v positive into a ground or something else it can short out the psu and other components, its best to not learn on something expensive. Sure the led's wont be a problem but there are numerous other things that can go wrong with someone inexperienced cutting and soldering.
