Most cold cathodes come with the required inverter. Just buy the kit. I bought 12" cold cathodes for my build from Xoxide.com I bought the kit that came with two cold cathodes, the inverter and a PCI slot switch. I removed the switch from the equation and ran it to a rocker switch, but that is irrelevant biggrin.gif

Dont buy Cathodes. Just buy LED strip that have UV light. Much better and they dont break + they dont need inverter.

Is there a good place I mount them in a switch 810?

This is true. I have those as well in my case. They give off different looking light appearances though. LEDs are very direct and bright. Cold cathodes have a more ambient style light.

I put one cold cathode in the top and one on the bottom. It all depends on how you want the lighting to show.

Well I need it to show off my Reactive Core blue uv res and Primochill uv blue tubing with the uv blue fluid....

A top and bottom combo or side and side would work. I normally set them across from each other to make the light as balanced as I can. LED strip lighting can definitely work for this too, it all comes down to your personal preference.

UV won't wash out your red fans. I've had mixed results with UV CC's, some bright, some very dim. I'd recommend LED strip in UV. Mount the strip all the way around the inside of the case. There's a couple bends that will hide it from direct viewing.
