My case needs some lighting

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Already my dfi board has some sweet UV reactant pci slots, ide cables and the whole inside itself. Now I was wondering what I could put into my case (that is safe and not making my case hotter) that would make them all pretty haha. I held my fluorescent lamp in there and it looked pretty amazing. Where could I find those lights (cathodes) that would fit into an antec 900 and such. As you can tell i know absolutely nothing about that stuff.

I have a couple cold cathode light tubes, blue I believe. I am not using them.



If you think they are what you want, just PM me.

I had them in my old pc, sold the pc and kept the lights in case I wanted to put them in another computer.

And the UV light will stand out? Or will it be overwhelmingly blue? I want a nice UV light that is noticeable !!!

Sorry...here is the link--they have the 15" tubes that are the brightest I have ever seen. I am a light freak--especially UV.

I have a pair of those in red and tehy are red--really red--not pink or orange like some I have bought.

The controller has a microphone and the lights can be adjusted to be sound sensitive--top quality stuff--sheathed leads--UV reactive translucent box--a step above most. And they are the Longest you can buy. The downside is they only provide one tube--but the good news is the controller will run two--so buy an extra 15" tube if you only want to run one bxe.

Highly recommend that particular light.

Look at the AC Ryan UV reactive fans with UV LEDS in them--no one else has them.
