Recommendations for a soft white LED for inside my case

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have the Corsair 300R windowed case and want to give it some lighting. For the front 140mm intake fan, I was thinking of putting in a white LED fan to replace it. For the top fans, I am leaning towards 2 - 120mm white LED silent fans for exhaust. My CPU I am leaning towards an H60 Corsair water cooling kit with fan at the rear of the case. My motherboard and memory will have a blue theme to it. My original intention was to have a white led strip inside the case, but after seeing some threads here I think that might over power my build - if that makes sense. I saw a build on this site recently going for the look I wanted but can't seem to find it. My goal is to have a light, white glow to the inside of the case, nothing over powering. Just something so if you look inside you can see what it has. Nothing over powering and maybe the white LED fans I'm looking at will accomplish that. I don't know. I hope that makes sense. Any input is appreciated.

Is led a requirement? If not you could take a look at cathode tube lighting. They are pretty cheap and have a nice uniform glow. Might be perfect for what you want to do, depending on where you mount them.

This one looks pretty good and is cheap. Here's a pic from one of the commenters that rated them highly.



Looks a little bright, but your case looks like it has a slight tint on the acrylic and if you mount them above and below a window it should work nicely. From what I understand these run on 12 volts and have molex connectors already and you'd have to do would be mount the tubes and the small inverter box. I've always thought they were cool, but I've never done a light case.
