Oh, I didn't want UV LEDs. I just wanted the cathodes to light up the tubing, and the the LEDs to give the inside the color I want, obviously with a diminished UV effect, but without the purple.
Either way, Newegg accepted my RMA and even emailed me a shipping label. Apparently their customer service is quite good when going through eBay.
I might just give up the thought of UV tubing all together, it looks pretty dang good without the UV effect, but with the UV effect, it puts it over the top. I just wish I could get away with having the cathodes like I do. I need higher powered cathodes that I can place elsewhere and it not be purple. I guess I'm asking a bit too much.
Right now all the fans are either on molex to 3 pin or on the motherboard with the 7v adapters included with the fans. Once I get the money back from the Recon, I'll either look into another solution or just deal with 7v. 7v is fine and all, and is much, much quieter than my AP15s at full blast, (even with the top rad in P/P) but I still want full control over my fans so if I want it to go lower or full blast for benching, I can. I just like having my options open.

Just a lil bit of solder and they work .awesome.
I'll take a look at those lights when I get a chance.
Sucks about the loop. =/ Congrats on the grad program though!
EDIT: Oh! and I also entered in the MOTM for April. Doubt I'll win or even get second place, but it'd be awesome if you guys could support me!
