Good to know, Glad someone told me before I ordered the cable. Looks like I have no choice but to pay the 18 dollars to have it shipped to us.

If you can get it into a block where the LED is completely covered and it only shines INTO the acrylic like a flashlight....kinda way. It'll work fine. But if you can physically see the bulb, all you're going to see is a bright light like a comet and will ruin the entire effect you're looking for.

If you're looking for some cool accent lighting. Look into the NZXT Strips.

I've got the white ones and I love it. 3 different intensities, the lowest would be nice with an actual color since it won't be overpowering. I like the white cause it feels more like a showcase.

Is it gona fit on the top of CM MasterCase 5 Pro ?
post #794 of 7180
For the ppl wondering if it fits, check if u have 65mm of clearance, it also depends on ur motherboard.

No way. That case has literally no clearance, and fans arent offset, so it would hit ram/mb heatsinks.

That is not a problem...

Corsair H100i GTX i think and it fit easly, but im afraind about lenght of predator 240

post #797 of 7180
Predator is much thicker. Also on predator you cant detach fans and put them above the frame in the roof like you can with H100.
I'm guessing bracket length will also pose an issue due to pump+res, as you've thought too.

CM didnt think of a lot of things when creating that case.

I tihnk that you dont know how that case look... That is pro and fans are inside the case. Predator is 13mm thicker but if you see on picture there is a lot of space. EKWB is that it is 19 mm longer and that maby issue.


Look at that:
post #799 of 7180
Predator is 38mm
post #800 of 7180
Radiator is38 but full unit with integrated pump and reservoir are: 295mm x 133mm x 68mm
