Blue lighting?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've been looking around for a way to illuminate my case more... as you see I have an Antec 900, and it's partially lit-up from my 9700 fan, and the others... but is there a whole light strip I could use? Or just.. black-light?

I've seen a few, but all the reviews say that they lose light or die very fast.

Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

I got red ones that I really don't use. They're bright.

They don't die quickly unless you get ones that suck.

Called cold cathodes.

Yeah, I bought my 12" Green cathodes from there and they work and look very nice. No problems with them at all.

I got some blue LED's that are for cars at wal mart . They're advertised for 12v even . Not too bright, but do the job .

(They just come with 2 wires that you could just wire in, easy, and cost about 11$)

You should be careful if you want to get red.
I got the red Ultra brand cold cathode tubes so I could have this cool red dragon on my pc.... I ended up with a pink dragon.
*mutter*
So, I knew a guy that did lighting at a tv station, and he got me some red spot light gels that they use to make color set lighting. Basically it is a colored plastic sheet.
That made is very red. But one died pretty quick. The other is still going strong.
