Triple monitor LED accent lighting mod

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I drool over beautifully done accent lighting and as such it pushed me to do this.
(Amongst other random light mods)

Tell me what you think.

It's an NZXT sleeved LED kit connected to my PSU via a self-made extension cable. The PCB is hot glued to the back of my rightmost monitor.

Hmmm, put lights on bottom of case for a little glow effect, but never thought of the monitor, very nice looking.

Thanks guys. I actually feel that it is just a little too bright and distracting. If I can't get used to it I think I might solder on a resister to the 12v line to dim it down a little.

I actually did that with my last case:

But because of the way the LEDs were oriented (facing out), it was pretty distracting. It still looked nice though.

Night vs day shots, if anyone is interested
