i ll get that also.
What about lights, what brands do you guys recommend?Colors?
I have seen some stuff called cold cathodes, what are they?
post #4 of 7
Cold cathodes are just lights that don't produce a measureable amount of heat. Nice looking too, if you have UV reactive parts, they will glow.

I personally found the UV Pen mod I saw tacky looking. You need to do a really professional job of them to make it look really neat and such. But I also found that it just made the inside of your case look like the Lazer tag places you go to where its all in the dark with UV lights and the walls are splattered with UV paints.

I'd go with some CCFLs (cold cathodes). Get a kit... go with logisys or something... get a kit with only one blue light or something. then just but a UV (purple looking) light on its own and attach to your kit you bought (each kit supports 2 lights usually.

The other option is a sweet lighting option I found thats CCFL. its got two different color elements in one enclosure. Ones I saw are UV and Blue. Put 2 of them in your case would look sick!

Let me find link....

http://xoxide.com/logisys-blue-uv-2-...d-cathode.html there it is... nice light and by logisys which is nice.

Good luck man post some pics when your modded up!

i have the same case. i moved my f_pannel wiring to the other side so it was behind the drive bays. you could also tuck a majority of your psu wiring back there as well.
