I did the same with my red led's Used one the NZXT sleeved kits and was pretty happy with it until it came apart upon removal. After that switched from a Red motif to a blue/UV motif.

This. I put my white ones around the very top, and my red ones along the bottom facing up.
And if you need some pointers, check the link in my sig.

Ok guys, yes its the wrong section... but dont kill me. Just give me some advice. I have been thinking about my 2.5 bay that came with the XB. I am thinking of refitting it (taking the 3.5" HDD cage I installed) and fill it with 2.5" drives. I have two 750GB Momentus XT's to run a RAID 0 on and the big one... what to do with my current 240GB Phenix Pro SSD. I have the new GTX 480GB SSD & 840 Pro 512 SSD's in my newegg cart. Which to buy, that is the question! My current 240gb SSD is quickly running out of space; down to 30GB.

Samsung 840 pro gets my vote. I have an OCZ Agility 240 that I love but i need something bigger also for music, vids, and stuff. MickyCenter has some solid pricing right now.

As for your old drive I would get some velcro and be creative. since you changed the drive cage there is plenty of other places to put it.

Plain and simple for me... I had led fans but I have my computer on overnight... and it's annoying... gonna clean up the wires and take a picture of the water cooling today

I thought that would be best also, but wouldn't the strip and the 3M stick tape prevent the top panel from closing into its grommets?

I did the same. Since the sides open up as well it's easy to disconnect the top lights before removing the top when you are showing it off..
