I Submitted a support ticket to nzxt for replacement led,s for my switch and they shipped them out promptly along with the top fan mount revision. I have to say it was a very pleasant experience and this company goes above and beyond for it,s customers. Very happy with my case choice and it was not an easy choice to make either took me months to decide. NZXT rocks!

I was looking at the nzxt ones but I am also looking at the cold cathodes as well. What do you guys prefer? LEDs or cathodes?

2m is a lot of lighting to cram in the case. You're better off with just 1m or perhaps less with LEDs as they emit more light with less heat, and no need for an inverter. You can do one on top and one the bottom. My suggestion is to use automotive LED strips because they provide the same amount of light as the pre-wired ones do like Bitfenix Alchemy for cheaper. The only downside is if you have to hardwire it yourself to a Molex or 12V. Most of the time, automotive LEDs come in packs of two and cost as much as just one Bitfenix LED strip. I personally don't prefer using NZXT LEDs because they emit spots and patches of light instead of one clean line like LEDs do. My $0.02, it's up to you though.

The Hue is far better, as it uses superflux LED's and not the standard 3mm LEDs, superflux gives off a much better cascade of light.

So do all the new cases coming out already come with the new panel or do you still need to ask nzxt for them? I ordered mine on 5/8/2013 and should be here on the 23rd. Will mine have the revised or old panel?

Can you get them pre wired for PC? I did a quick Google search bit didn't find much. Where did you
get yours/good place to get them?
Edit* found the nzxt hue controller which comes with the led strip. Is this what you were referring to/using?

Yes I found that thank you. Looks very cool and might be just what I want. While you are here perhaps you could answer my previous question about weather the switch 810's are now being shipped with the new top panel or do I still need to request it from nzxt? I ordered my case on 5/9/13. Will it have the revised top panel? Sorry for all the questions. Thanks!

Depending on where you buy it from and how regularly their inventory cycles, all Switch cases have been produced with the updated panel since August of last year. If you bought one from somewhere like Newegg, you'd receive the updated top panel.
