Ok, I need your guys' opinion. I'm planning on adding a sleeved LED cable kit to my case http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_107_921&products_id=29391. My theme is blue but I can't decide whether to go with blue or white LEDs and if I should go with the 1 meter kit (12 LEDs) or the 2m kit (24 LEDs). The white LEDs are obviously going to be brighter and probably light the case better but I wanted to hear your opinion. I have a gunmetal case.

Hey guys, just wanted to drop by and say Hi since I'm new to this forum and I'll be browsing this thread a lot when my case comes in tomorrow! It will be my first build, so I'll be combing through these pages for ideas since I have too many ideas running through my head.

I was in a similar place that you are. I was originally planning on using Red LEDs, but then opted for White LEDs. I think it was the better of the two choices and haven't looked back. thumb.gif

I can take a pic with blue LEDs on if you'd like. I have an RGB strip lying around I'll throw in my gunmetal case tonight. As for white, check out my test - http://atomicpeach.net/nc/index.html.

I prefer white lights, no matter what your theme is. I think colored LEDs just make everything in your case look the same color, taking away the contrast that makes things pop and look awesome.

I've seen how blue looks like on youtube. There are no videos of white ones however. I think I'll go with white ones because like Traches mentioned, it would look too blue. If I go with the white ones, the blue mobo, tubing, wiring, and fans will be more noticable I believe

I gotta say I completely agree. White lights all the way!

I've got white in mine. I still have another strip I need to figure out what to do with.
