Help me decide!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone out there have UV LEDs and white coolant with clear tubing? I'm going for a strong UV look like this build (using the same custom leds):

*

Except I'm going to use clear tubing and white coolant. I want the UV to bounce off of the tubing like in this build:



except I won't be using white tubing, but white coolant, so I'm not sure if the UV will bounce off of it like I want. Anyone have a similar color scheme in their build that they could post pics of?

I'm either going with that color scheme, or going blue led with green coolant such as this build:



Help me decide D:

UV is ugly and kind of childish IMO. You won't really see it in to many clean enthusiast builds. If I had to go with it I would push for something like the second picture. Clean, not overdone and attractive. As long as you can get a clear UV to hit the coolant, it will pop easily.

Right. I don't really like the glow UV gives off either, I just like how the purple bounces off and matches the white so nicely. I think I'll go with 3 strips of the uv led he used (top, bottom, side).

You could also use a fan controller to to fine tune how much light each strip gives off. That way you could find just the right amount to set the coolant off.

I'm in the same predicament as you GMPoison. I've been having trouble deciding between Mayhem's Clear UV Blue Dye or UV White Dye (which I think Mayhem's also has).

My build has a Nickel/Black theme to it, so I'm trying to decide on how it'll look best.
