But since i plan to install them underneath / above ot my casing , then getting UV is pointless right ? Since it won't be bright as the other colors.
Kill bacteria drool.gif ? Then if it shines near me it will kill me too / cause skin cancer no ? thinking.gif I mean that is if i bought UV ones and install them outside instead of inside the case.

No. Cathodes do not provide the same type of UV lights as the sun does.

This. The energy levels used in pasteurization processes are way higher than those dinky cathodes.

I haven't seen any CCFL Kits before , also i can't find / see any demo too , because the shops they selling here are all online ones only , no retail , so i don't know the actual layout of the kit. Im not sure am i able to install them outside my casing for the wire i have to place it outside , but i roughly have an idea what im going to do is

1)Leaving the inverter inside the case.

2)Then i will pass the wire out through the rubber holes originally meant for water cooling tubes at the rear of the Carbide 400R.

3)So that i can install my Cold Cathodes outside my case and the wire that i pass through the rubber hole can be connected to the inverter inside the case/

So does anyone have experience with Cold Cathode light installment , do you think my idea will work ??
But i prefer to have the inverter outside , if that's even possible.

(Wires will be passing through this holes here)

I should think so. From what I have gathered this club was only 400R/500R until the 300R came out, then they included it so I see no reason why the 200R should be excluded. thumb.gif

Bought a 200R earlier today, and I have to say its bloody fantastic for the price (£50). It has everything I was looking for in a case.
Originally, I intended to purchase the Fractal Define R3 (approx £75), but the 200R ticks all of the same boxes for two thirds the price thumb.gif

Granted the hard drive cage feel flimsy, SSD's took a fair bit of force to slide into place. The 5.25" covers are slightly loose and flimsy. There is also a distinct lack of accessories in the box; but for a budget builder case, do you really need the extra paraphernalia?

The rest of the design and the build quality cannot be faulted at all. It certainly is the new standard to which other manufactures must aim for within this price bracket.

Couldn't agree more! personally I consider the 300r the black sheep of the Carbidge series, it never interested me, but now I wish I gotten the 200R instead xD
post #2700 of 4610
If the 200R was released when I bought my 300R I would probably have bought the 200R instead. I don't regret buying the 300R though as I still think it's a great looking case, looks better than the 200R IMO, I know some of you will disagree though wink.gif

Also better go and edit the club title in my sig now tongue.gif
