How to light up your case

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How do you light up your case.
My case will be a Stacker 832, and I will have Blue Led Fans.

What are the best type of lights to get?
I found these, what's the difference, and is this all what I need..

Hi.

Cold cathode lighting is my preference.

Here is a nice combination unit from Vantec. It has dual 12" cold cathode tubes, and controls 3 fans. It is available in silver or black. (Newegg for reference only).

hmmm... I do not see a difference upon initial inspection...

I have Logysis lighting, and am quite pleased with the performance.

No, nothing else unless you want to use UV (ultraviolet) , or Blacklight.

I still have a couple of Vantec contollers that are fully functional, the older one has about 1 year of use (not 24/7).

Note that I did have to RMA one. I had a power outage, and when the power returned it borked the CC controller... even though I had it on a surge protector.

The fan that you linked to has its own LED's, nothing else will be needed to illuminate it.
