That's what I got. It's not that bad a little low on the quality side. But I just hooked it up to a molex 12 volt and it has worked great for about a month so far... thumb.gif

I have a couple of the Chinese RGB light kits (1m each). I've been running one set for a couple weeks pretty solid every night. They're not bad for the price. The controller is a little on the wimpy side, so it won't take any rough handling. It gets the job done as advertised though. And it's pretty easy to make a molex to standard pin cable to power it.

Did you have to wire the molex yourself, or did it come like that?

How about the NZXT sleeved light cables?

Comes in 1 and 2 meter cables and 5 colors

http://www.nzxt.com/new/products/case_accessories/sleeved_led_kit

This is what a 2 meter red cable looks like on max brightens

The little control box for the light has a standard 12 volt round plug for a 12v adapter like this Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I found a old adapter I had in the closet and cut the end off and soldered it to a old molex cable I also had laying around.
