My first PC build - Some feedback would be great :) - Page 7

post #61 of 65
looks good to me! really wouldn't change anything. You'll love the GTX 680 4gb--def worth getting the extra mem. only nit pick would you your ssd. fine to stick with OCZ, but you might check out the Vertex 4, as the Agility series was generally panned. Might also look at crucial--they're the real deal.

Hey fellas, back again. Was curious on your thoughts about spicing my rig up with some blue leds and blue cathode stick, and what the best way would be to go about doing so? i.e. how do you mount the leds specifically and how do they attach to the power supply?

Edit: Also, forgot to mention where would be a good online store to buy sleeves for my cables.

As you can see I really want to make my first PC rig special tongue.gif

I've never really found CCFL lighting to be anywhere near as rich as LED as far as colors go. All my cathode lighting has been quite pale in comparison to my LEDs. There are various ways to mount. You can buy pre-made LED strips, and use things like double-sided tape, or velcro for easy removal if need be. As far as lighting's interface with the PSU, it's usually just ran to a Molex connector on the +12v side. If you find LED strips that are not in a protective casing, or you build your own using loose LEDs, make sure to insulate them from the chassis of the computer, as you run the risk of shorting doh.gif

If you really wanted to make it EVEN MORE special, you could go about building your own circuit for your LEDs, and even run RGB in pretty much any color you desired, but I'm not learned in the arts of engineering such things, so you'd have to do your own research if you wanted to go that route.

My desired effect was to do something similar to this guys project 'Attero' , especially what he did to the case smile.gif And i was going to place the Cathodes around the edges of the Window of the Shinobi XL

Yea CCFL is pretty much ancient technology compared to LED's.
